I made the modifications to my airbox... only 3 holes but much larger than the ones shown at the the top of the page... it makes alot more noise up until 3500 rpm then it goes completely stock again... (very weird) it sounds like its has extractors in the 2- 3.5 rpm but after that goes quiet and back to stock... alot more throttle response and engine sounds healthier (breathing wise)... good cheap mod to perform.

ummm doesnt this defeat the purpose of having a filter as u r now by passing the original intake n the air is no longer passing thru the filter but direct into the pie to the throttle body??? no need for a high flow filter when u have no filtreation anyway hope u kept the receipt

it is only going 2 sound healthier til u get a blocked injector from all the muck that can now pass through the throtle body, n again i must repeat dont bother spending ur money on a k&n panel filter that isnt going 2 do anything at all...

two things here, they have made the holes in their air boxes BEFORE the air filter, so as per the factory the air is still filtered.
Secondly there are two different types of air boxes shown here, one from an eb/ed series car and an ef/el car.
Now the ef and el type have the air coming in through the bottom of the air box and up into the filter that way.
and the ea, eb and ed have a log style intake manifold and they have the air coming in through the top of their air box, then it goes through the filter and out the bottom of the air box.

hope that helps you out there jdas,
:)

just have another look at the pictures. ea - ed air comes in the bottom
ef -bf come in through the top
this is due to the broadband inlet manifold

they all have the filter in the middle, just the air flow is different.

When I had my farimont engine in my ED I changed the airbox to EL and modified the snorkel to still flow in the top, I'll have to get some pics to show it off, I just sold the engine and intake to a mate who's now running it.

jdas,have a better look at the first photo's i posted. the idea is the higher pressure on the outside will help force air through the filter insted of having it sucked through from an as equal pressured side *Warning, Science Content* (im a nerd), it also helps because as i said, i found there is a pocket of cold air that comes in from beside the left headlight on that side. should be there on all the ef el body styles. (not sure about xh's, i think they are the late e series style)

and the holes are from the pre filtration section. . . . . . . .

all air on ef and els are sucked in through a snorkel to the bottom of the airbox... if all that series cut their holes in the airbox below the filter then it is still being filtered.. i am going to stick with a stock air filter as it filters the air better than the high performance ones (so i've heard). my car does get hot when idling at long traffic lights... but cools down quite quickly once moving again...
