Viggen Airbox

Does anyone know what that extension of the airbox is which runs down into the wheel arch? Is it worth removing it and just leaving the pipe which runs from the airbox? I dont want to upgrade to a whole induction kit.

It pulls air from under the fender, to ensure there is no water and it also makes it very quiet.

If you have the stock filter or a K&N drop in its worth it to remove. Its called the intake resonator. To remove it you have to pull the splash guard down.

Thanx alot. I have a stock filter cause i noticed with the k&n panel that my oil gets dirty quickly and sometmes my car dosnt boost in gear. It is weird but as soon as i put a stock filter in then it boosts normally again. I thought that maybe the maf gets too much air? Will try take the resonator off and see how it feels and sounds.

If you had a K&N make sure you clean the MAF. If the MAF is over 60k replace.
Just get rid of all that crap that connects the airbox.

Are there any benefits to removing it?

Well at least there are no downsides with removing it.
It does pose a sligt restriction in the intake system so it's justifiable to remove. Some say intake sounds increase slightly but I didn't notice that.
