    Default I did the airbox mod...ermmmmm

    It does idle smoother. No wobble at cold idling in neutral when just turned over and started.

    It pulls smoother through the gears-and less accelerator pedal is needed to move the beast along. The lag feels lessened as the turbo spools up.

    Dare I say it, the first gear hesitation is better, now the EGR is cleaned, Boost Valve cleaned, and now the plastic air box part removed...

    ...So, why is the plastic bit there in the airbox? Everything does has a purpose right? Any long term damage concerns with the plastic part removed permanently? Is is there to keep the frost off the MAF on colder mornings as a shield etc?

    Ta.
