    i suppose the easyest thing to do is replace the box with an induction kit !! but if you feel like modding your air box then undo the top so it reveils your filter .... take the filter out ... and carefully remove the plastic cover thats over the hole where the air comes in ..... jobs a good'un put back together and enjoy a little more freedom

    Cheers for that,already got the K&N,and in a past life with VW's had induction kits which to a certain extent I didn't like and wasn't that happy with......is there a proven i.e. measured bhp increase with the airbox mod?

    Is the airbox mod worth doing without changing the filter? Anyone?

    I'm going to have a go this week and take it out and see what difference it makes.
    It can only do good in my eyes.
    I'm still studying which air filter to buy or play around with my own design, seeing as we make filters here.

    iv'e done the irbox mod today and i think it's made a difference albiet small.the car (signum 2.0 t ) seems to run better.i also have the k&n panel filter.you can hear the turbo more and when it dumps the air between gear changes,was'nt expecting that but it's a pleasent sound.one thing i do know is that the plastic funnel in the air box is a pig to remove but worth it.

    The airbox mod didn`t make much difference to mine, but when the K&N went in it was a huuuuge difference, i don`t know how much was down to the airbox being done as well ...
