    As long as you only removed the part in the bottom half of the airbox it should be fine.

    Might be worth a check to make sure that all the hoses going to the airbox and the jubilee clip are secure.

    Pics are in the How2 section pretty sure. under "Air box mod"

    Have to say I have never heard of any adverse noise or affect on any of the posts, especially the sound you describe, sorry to hear it wasn't a total success so far.

    Lazy Blighters!

    It's in the HOW2 section and there's the index to make it simpler.

    It's there for 1.8VVTi, 1.9CDTi and the 3.0V6, but all engines pretty much have identical airboxes!
