    Ahh, the cylinder thing that clips onto the box. Not got a clue what it is for, but never heard mine making any noise.

    yea the cylinder thing that clips to the back of the air box with two pipes going in to it and on pipe going out of it that is what is making the lound hissing noise but it only does it when the engine has been running for some time.
    dont now if this is anything to do with it but the car seems to hold back abit at around 4 to 5 rpm ????

    and what does it do and what is it called
