  • air box research and development :)

    on the lower air box when you remove it in the top right corner there is a 25mm approx hole connected to a plastic pipe.
    is this the breather?
    anyone who has a flowmaster does this plasic pipe connect to the flowmaster box?
    i was just wondering if i needed to add this to my custom air box?
    any help appreciated

            is that the one your on about? of so its not a breather! it just gives any unwanted water thet makes it into the airbox somewhere to get out! thought you were an engineer lol

                    inside top (no breather)


                    outside top (ditto lol)


                    and the standard drain! only other thing i seen was the rubber mounting bits as in male into female just at the bottom of the bottom pic. and the standard cool air feed that runs from the drivers wing!

                    what one did ya mean?

                        have ya followed this tube? it dosnt go anywhere! it hangs out the bottom of the engine bay like a hard on in the shower room! on a closed induction box these are usefull as it lows trapped water somewhere to escape! if you planning an open cone its useless
