#388107 Anyone Removed The Resonator From Airbox Feed?

Posted by theduke on 20 July 2014 - 10:30 PM

Just incase anyone does remove it be careful not to disturb the bonnet lock had squeeky bum time earlier when i couldnt open it but thanks to the guide section its sorted now phew!..on the plus side ive modified the the resonator to become a scoop and im averaging 0.5 mpg up on what i used to get its no quicker but sounds it lol

Thats lot i didnt know about it lol!
But it does sound better, feels the same power wise (i still have very little) 10x better than a dreaded induction kit heat soak wise and gives that bit of extra noise you would expect

Overall a good compromise for me anyway

Cree/Led ones are much brighter, Dont buy the ones with multiple leds as they fail pretty quickly and as said theyre fiddly to change i greased the light fitting so it would come out easier next time if needed

Just had a little play with my car I already have a K&N panel filter which makes no difference in noise or performance if im honest, But behind the front grill theres a huge v shaped resonator with an open end the other side of the grill I removed the screws/plugs from the grill and surround enough to get access to the resonator and gently pulled up and off it popped from two rubber grommets put it all back together and theres a fair bit of induction roar now :)

 

Dont know if its been done before but thought id share and its a free mod than anyone with a screwdriver can do, Mines a mk2.5 dont know if the other mk's are the same though

Ive googled the living crap out of it theres no clear answer other than take it and run, Theres one thread on pistonheads and another on overclockers with no final result so im  guessing nothing happened otherwise the op would have continued posting....

Posted by theduke on 03 June 2014 - 08:42 PM

Theres normally a thermal fuse behind the clutch plate on magnet pita to get to with the compresor on the car and a lot of potch to replace hence why most people will stick a new/recon one on. Theyre technically unservicable
