    Hello everybody ! I've been reading this cool forum for a while now , and now it's time to post
    I'm from Romania and i own an Astra mk3 '98 1.6i 8v.

    I got 2 questions regarding my airbox , i would really appreciate if you could answer them

    Here's a pic i took today ( damn i really need to wash the engine )


    1. What is the device in the circle ? The one with a wire attached to it ?
    2. I dont know if you can tell , but will the derestrict tutorial work on my airbox ?

    Is that an SPI engine?, i had one of them. Basically the thing you circled is the air meter. You can still derestrict the box jus don t remove that, although when i did, it made no difference.

    No its not, its a change over flap to alternate between hot air from over the exhaust manifold or cold air from the front. It uses hot air from over the manifold on cold days to stop the fuel icing up in the injection unit.
