Opened my airbox today to install K&N filter, I was surprised to see a moulded plastic cover sealing the inlet and outlet. Manual did not show this. I am just wondering has anyone attempted sealing the box and discarding this plastic cover? It is a pain trying to centralise the airfilter with this arrangement and I am sure the EFI would breathe a lot better without this.Thanks in anticipation
The G5 and B5 do not have the same airbox and do not have these problems.
Thanks for the correction Gremlin.
Correct me if I am wrong guys, improving an engines breathing both in and out must give improved fuel economy? I believe where people are seeing reduced economy is due to the fact that there is a small increase in power and they tend to screw on the throttle a bit more.Cheers
