    Ive been told that there could be a restrictor on my air Box. But i wasnt sure so rather than rip it to bits i thought id ask on here.
    Anyway is there a restrictor?
    Is it easy to remove?
    Will it mess with my Oxgen sensor and my MAF?
    Is there any down sides to doing this ( aside form more fuel consumption)? e.g Rough running, loss of power in the revs?

    Cheers

    The restrictor on the airbox is purely to lower the noise-No other function.It will not increase performance or anything else but make a louder noise if you remove it.


    What I think you are wanting to do though is to change your manifold to an M50 one as the 323 has a restricted manifold on it.......It does need fabrication to fit properly though but it does give you very good gains for the money(Bang for the Buck)
