    bonnet sound dedenning?

    On my astra gsi my bonnet sound dedenning rubs on my silicone hose, so was thinking of either removing it or cutting a bit off where my induction silicone hose is. Who has taken theres off? Does it make much difference sound wise?

    **** all, i removed mine ages ago. Granted mine's non turbo but it still hasn't made that much difference

    If you wanted to remove th OE one you could repace it with Hood Liner which is a lot thinner

    You know the one

    Enquire within

    Ive removed loads of them, they are only there to reduce engine noise. Obviously if your running high power maybe replace it with some heat reflective foil.
