    Airbox Mod... Ok for MOT?

    Searched around but can't seem to find this out...

    I'd like to derestrict my airbox and fit a Veccy C intake pipe. I know the Veccy C pipe wouldn't affect my service and MOT in June but is there any chance that derestricting the airbox would?

    Thanks
    Sam

    I doubt it very much mate!

    It only lets more air in, the cat is still there the sort out the emmisions and they wont even know you have done anything to the airbox trust me!

    do the both at the same time
    its easier to get the vectra pipe in with the air box out so you can smash the pipes out of the airbox at the same time

    do them both at the same time (as in same day). Doesn't take long & even >I< can do it

    The airbox mod was easier to do than the Vec C mod though.

    & my advice would be to not piss about with wiggling the bits out of the airbox. Just get a hammer & turn it on its side & whack them out. No point in drawing a job out
