    Vehicle : Vectra c SRI Facelift

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2006

    Default Big hole cut into my airbox

    I checked my air filter and when i took it out theres a bloomin great hole in it.It looks like somebody has tried to fit pipes in it or something.

    Attachment 47888

    There was a fag butt and a big bit of plastic which i assume came through the hole.

    Why would somebody do this?

    Don't worry about it, it will cause you no harm just help the engine breath better at higher revs. A few of us have a similar mod done but a little neater than that.

    Makes you wonder what else the last owner had done if thats the best they could do with a simple hole.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Is there not a risk that something could fly up and end up wedging itself in the air intake pipe or worse still working its way into the engine?

    Even without that hole you still find fag butts, flys, stones as they get in through the air intake pipe.
