ok, the std pipe on mine from the airbox to the throttle body has like a rubber inner bit where it fits into the airbox, kinda like a air horn shape to it, but i noticed it is small as, surely it would be a restriction point, is there any benifit in either cutting it out or replacing the original pipe with some tubing?????????

Yep you can actually just use the pipe from an EA, which doesn't have that smaller section.

LOL, I have trouble picking up the gain from extractors and cam let alone that.

But yeah I'm pretty sure it's a worthwhile mod in conjunction with an XH Snorkel.
