    received the rubber intake pipe from quarry yesterday A+ service and delivery as always. any way did it all correctly today, by this i meen to make sure i got in and evrything tight i took the wipers off, the polen filter and housing and the strut side shild, aswell as all the airbox maf and control box anbove the throttle body intake.
    maybe a bit ott but a good excuse to stay out in the sun a little longer

    i also took out a funnel looking thing from inside the airbox, do you think i should have, or should i have left it in?

    If it was there to be a velocity stack, then I would have left it in place personally.

    I think it is effective that you should have it. But if you choose not to, It is about your choice. But I suggest you should have it.
