you cannot gut the airbox on the Series One motors, like the one you have in your car

the airbox mod only applies to the Series 2

Moved to Performance and Brainstorming.

Let'* clarify......there is no NEED to gut the airbox on a Series 1. You can PORT it out by adding holes to the front face, and drop in a K&N filter.

The Series 1 box is not as baffled and restrictive as the Series 2.

And to add my Series one experience.

While the series 1 doesn't have baffles etc, it does have a rather small inlet at the front and is not using the full filtering material. In this respect it is similiar to the Series 2 and no matter which one you have...there are gains to be had.

Bonne and your car are different, no comparison

Link us to it before buying any aftermarket intake. Most are garbage. Including the fake filters.
