    Exclamation Help! Cone filter fitting

    I bought a pipercross cone filter for my sri 1.6t... I have read both here and on corsaduk that some people have left the bottom half of their airbox on when fitting a cone filter as it doesn't restrict airflow too much, protects from engine bay heat and provides some stability for the cone..



    I took the top half of the airbox off, however I have previously read to leave the bottom half on to increase stability of the air filter and it shouldn't restrict airflow.
    It doesn't seem to fit right and the foam of the air filter has been pushed in by the bottom half of the airbox. What have other people done when fitting their cones? Is this the correct fitting?



    Thanks

    Ah thats good to hear!
    So it shouldn't be a problem that the foam is dented in and that's the recommended method over removing the whole air box?

    Cheers mate

    One more question - When accelerating or I push the accelerator there is a constant suction noise which then obviously hisses when the accelerator is released. I knew about the hiss of the re-circulation valve however i presume the sucking noise before is also normal?
