    De-restricting Airbox . . ?!

    I have an astra mk4 01 plate. 1.6i 16v sxi hatch back. I have a K&N airfliter, wandering what benefits a De-restrictied Airbox has and what i need to do it. Do i just ask for it to be done at a garage?!

    hi,

    benefits would be a smoother throttle respone (although very minor) and you would just do it your self, check out the how to's

    easy to do mate, in fact i did it for the 50th time today!

    do a search for "derestricted" or "airbox" and you'l bring up loads of threads, its been discussed to death mate,
    Observe the masses and do the opposite

    If you open your airbox you will see the pipes that need removing. Effects are minimal but worht doing. If you take it too anyone other than a vaux tuner like regal they will look at you strangely.
