    What's the point with this?

    What's the point with this thing that i have marked around here?



    Woundering to do the same that i did at my calibra turbo, but this time i will build a heat shield around the filter.
    Here is a pic of my c20let but without the heat shield, but i'm gonna make one for my z20let!!

    havent a clue but no problems with getting rid of it alot of people on here get rid and drop in a 2.2 airbox (or a cdti box) as induction kits tend to suffer from heat soak some tubing and your heatshield could solve this though

    Its for noise reduction and it also allows for somewhere for the crankcase to vent
