    Anotehr derestrict question!

    Hi guys,
    I opened up my airbox to check if my k&n panel filter was clean and noticed that when it originally did the veccy c / derestrict / k&n filter mod that I hadnt removed the top pipe in the airbox. Seem to remember a friend saying that youll get more performance by removing the bottom one but not the top one, is this true? if not ill whack it off while cleaning the filter lol.

    same as mate. TBH I can't see how leaving the top one in will increase performance as it's restricting airflow
