Hello all- Ithink I posted my questions in the wrong area,so here goes..
installed the venom brace..easier to do by removing the air muffler/silencer box.
Question: Do I need to reinstall the box?
Is it's sole purpose to reduce air intake sound, or is it an essential part of the airflow engineering ? Being downstream of the mass airflow sensor, if the hole was plugged and airtight, I would think it would not change/affect the computer. Any thoughts on this? Seems like a big lump there for nothing. I am retaining the stock air filter/induction system otherwise.
I'm not interested in a CAI ,just want to eliminate the lump. Any suggestions for plugging the 'hole"?
I thought a disc of suitable material, silicone the perimeter,use original clamp and be done. Thanks in advance!
All the best,
The LV Venom brace can not coexist with the resonator box on the NA cars.
You can not put it back, so you need to plug the hole.
