Can anyone help me regarding a pipe on the air filter body?

I'll try and explain this without a photo. If you look down at the filter body, it has two pipes, one which is the 90 degree bend one which goes to the throttle body and another pipe, which comes off the body.

Mine doesn't appear to have this second pipe and instead has tape over the end.

Where does this other pipe go to and is it important?

Thanks.

Its supposed to go the ICV, (idle control valve), i f you have a small filter over your valve inlet then you don't need this, but if not then you engine could be breathing unfiltered air on idle.

No, I think you're getting mixed up by my poor description. I mean on the metal air filter body, there's two pipes that are supposed to come off that.

- One is the 90 degree pipe which goes to the throttle body pipe.
- The other one, on mine just has tape, and no pipe.

aah I gotcha Wink

The other pipe should go up to the slam panel as a ram-intake - could do with getting a cold air feed to it if yours is missing

Just found this photo:



The bit I need is the bit on the right at right angles to the vertical pipe. Where does it attach to?

Just had a quick think, If this is taped up then your inlet is air tight? ie, no power?

*edit- at work so can't see your pic

There's the vertical feed that goes to the throttle body.

Then there's the side vertical feed for the air intake, and off this at 90 degrees is a strange shaped plastic container.

What does this do?

The item in that picture on far right is the resonator.

So taping the opening up is adequate?
