Re: Big holes in resonator

I'm thinking in removing the resonator from my intake system, to create a deeper sound.
Will this affect power in any way? Better or worse.
Do I need to close the connection hole beween the airfilter tubing and the resonator. Big dirt can be sucked into here I beleave

Re: Big holes in resonator

You can take off all the mile of pipe (including the big airfilter that lives under the battery) and replace it with something...I used a CDA and made up a flexible pipe from the pipework I'd removed from the massive over filtering job. I reckon Fiat thought the B was going to Saudi..top notch dust filtering, completely wasted in northern Europe.

CDA sounds good and give noticably more torque on launch, low down in the rev band. The car was measured at 128Hp on the dyno before and 143 afterwards so a useful improvement.

Only downside of the CDA is its a bitch to dismantle, clean and re-oil.

Re: Big holes in resonator

Thanks for the info but I want to keep the original airfilterbox. I don't want to oil my filter every once and then, + clean my throttle body or air mesurement thing after oil deposits.

I just want to throw away the resonator. Who has done this before and what are your thougts?

Btw: some uses have connected an oil catch tank with a little filter. I want to leave out the catch tank and just connect the filter after 30cm tubing.
Is there really so much oil spit out of the crank breather?

Re: Big holes in resonator

Yes. You need a catch tank, the enviroment will suffer.

All you need is an empty coke bottle (500ml)...

Re: Big holes in resonator

if you have a lot of oil coming out of your crank breather then you may have sticky rings, running forte engine flush for a few weeks then an oil change can solve this

Re: Big holes in resonator

Ok I do need a oil catch tank then or just leave it connected as it is right now. I will figure something out in the next week.

Still havn't got an answer to the resonator thing. Can I remove it and what do I have to do with the rubber connector.
