The large plastic box is the "air box" this is designed very carefully to iron out the intake pulses from the engine so the air flows freely more than to suppress noise.

So you get another nomination from me.
thanks davesss, glad it will be helpful for the lag11 aswell, the more the merrier
Now I know what that black box is for too, great stuff lol.
thanks for the nomination too dave

nice one stef, bit of a about getting the housing back into place as its a funny shape, being wider at the bottom with no room to move it , but should be of great help to beginners.

thanks daft plonk, yep it definetly is a bit fiddly. getting it out was what held me back the most, that plastic pipe that comes out just infront of it cant make it any more akward! if it wasnt for that it would have taken 5 mins max.

Nice little post from mad man

This will also help members with the 2.0 16v espace F4R engine as its the same set up as mines but the only difference is you don't get to see any of thisand you have to work blind so it will give espace owners something to look at before taking the job on and help locating screws and the like about the bay

Cheers Donald
