    Default Airbox Mod on 2.8 V6????

    Hey ya'll

    Just wondered as I never saw the thread before I fitted my K&N panel, so didnt look...

    Is the restriction cone in the Air box fitted on the 2.8 V6 Engine? If so, has anyone removed it and seen any difference?

    Just thought I would ask before I go downstairs and take apart the air box for nothing lol...

    Haven't removed cone but during remapping a 255 VXR when the airbox was drilled the same as 280 VXR airbox was surprised to gain nearly 10 bhp.

    Drilled? Been looking for the thread here as there was a how2 on a VXR cold air feed... but... its gone missing. Popped open the box earlier and its got the cone missing as standard. Bummer!

    I'm still not sure what you mean by "drilled". Can't see any drill holes in those pics. Will have to go look at mine tomorrow.

    The fifth and sixth pic down, the hole on left with x grill in it is not present on 255 airbox and must be drilled for remap to benefit.

    The pics at end of post from Andyuk911 show 255 airbox without hole if you look carefully.
