    After removing airbox.

    Hi there,
    Have removed my airbox for the moment and replaced it with a new cone filter, my question is the plastic vacumme hose that comes of the side of the airbox. What do you do with it ?. Put a little filter on it ?, Any ideas would be grande cheers.

    Yeah, it's only for the Secondary Air Injecton system.

    Slap a little filter on there. If you're stuck for a temp fix, make a temp filter out of a pair of tights and a cable tie until you can get a pukka one.

    Not in the slightest. Use any of the ebay ones, they should be fine.

    Alright Cawsey20,

    What Cone did you put on there, Im looking for one, but can't see to find one I like.......
    I don't want to be sucking in to much hot air from the block. I see cold air feed ones on ebay that look like you shove it behind the fog lights. but not sure.

    Cheers

    ( s3 baby ), Ive just got a ****ty one on there for the moment, Im going BMC or similar soon something with a nice cold air feed,
    I still have more cold air going to it than my mates turbo civic does lol. Seems to be a nice lot of space in the s3 engine bay over that side :D.
