    air intake hole???

    hi, i saw a car with a hole in the front bumper. it said it was for the cold air intake feed or somthing. i was just wondering what it was and where you can buy the parts as i thought it looked good!

    Ive seen the parts in halfords for the air intake Just buy the ring thingy for the hole and some tubing stuff to run it to the airbox / cone Shouldnt be that expensive Probably have to cut a hole in the bumper for it though

    It basically allows more cold air into the engine bay and up to the airbox / cone filter More air - more response and power (apprently)

    (sorry for lack on technical words lol )

    Some people remove a Fog light and use the hole that leaves to run a intake pipe
