    Eek Induction Roar....

    Hi All...

    Well what can I say... I finally have it.. The biggest sound the 1.8VVT can make and it boy what a sound!
    Below 3kRPM, there is really no difference, but holy hell in a hand basket, open it up and the sound is pant wettingly loud and brings an instant smile to my face... I'll try and get it on video, but it's nothing like I've ever heard on Youtube or out in the real world...It's right up there with the noise of my old MV6....

    The Mod?

    Well after drilling and faffing about with holes, I decided to go the whole hog and remove the front lower portion of the airbox..
    Now I get that while this seems as silly idea, it's got rid of the dodgy pulling away when cold.... also the flat spot at the bottom of the rev range has just gone. The Car is probably no faster, though she does sound like she powered by rocket fuel, and has a race engine under the hood!

    BTW, the BMC, isn't all that.. went back to the OEM Airbox with this mod, looks smarter too as you can't see it...

    Anyone else does this mod?
    This is worth it just for the noise I tell you.
    Any one close by that wants to come over for a listen?

    Yeah know what you mean....
    Remove the lower front corner of the airbox... leave the standard air intake alone. Just remove the corner, the section behind the headlight. There is a open section in the wing for the cooler air to enter the airbox here.
