Resonator box?

Hi all, been speaking to a friend of mine about my air box and what not and have a little question.

Is there any restrictions to the air flow before the air box? I've been told there might be a resonator box where the air flow pipe enters the drivers side wing? If so does removing this help with breathing, or will it just mess up the MAFS? I'm running a green panel filter already but interested to know if there's anything else I can do to improve the air flow without bolting on a induction kit.

Cheers All!!

This looks spot on, they mention that you might not get full benefits of the system without a unichip? My rex hasn't been re-maped yet so would you recommend waiting till then?

Re: Resonator box?

best bet is,buy it,fit it,try it,won't cause any damage in doing so,just means you'll hear a "flutter" of the tubby,just like mine does and you won't end up with heat sink from the engine bay either

Thinking of making one like Blue Peter... bit of drain pipe and a few bog rolls and 'sticky backed plastic' all from a skip... as cant afford to buy them!
