    To be honest that massive thread on the subject of putting the top hose back in says it all... I dont think theres much difference but some folk say the car gets smoother and more responsive... The jurys still out though, best thing to do is try it and keep it if u like it...
    N.b. any opinitons expressed above should be ignored and considered 'ramblings', under no circumstances should they be relied upon...

    this usually regards the non turbo petrol models mate, in the turbo you should remove everything inside the airbox
