its a resonator to cut down air noise and release backfire pressure,you will lift your air box lid and any other damage :roll: :roll:

yes u can just put a piece of SS pipe there in plave of the dogs turd and plastic tube. it has been done before, so i dont see a problem.

I have actually been told to cut the dogs turd back about 1/3 of the size it is now and re seal it. This is coming from a bloke that works at ford. i will have to ask the reasoning about it.

yep, just used a bit of the blue tube and clamped a bolt in, not pretty but will do until I get motivated to clean it up.
