Only tricky part is you need to unbolt the fuse box in order to get the pipe section out.

Overall, 15 min job

Couldn't do it. Only had an adjustable spanner. Needed a socket kit, Changed the panel though. Feels slower. Could I have failed somehow?

Need to reset the ecu to get the benefit, it will still think the old filters in there

Yeah but I wouldn't have thought it felt slower though. Reverse placebo.

Very helpful! Took me about 30 minutes which isn't bad for a 17 year old with little experience with any thing car related. Thanks

Thanks a million for the quick and easy guide. I am hoping to do this myself over the weekend.

Any chance you could re upload the images? They seem to be missing.

Cheers

These are from a Gen 2 but the process it's almost the same, just slightly different looking parts.

Thanks lads.

Have read various different opinions on the benefits/downsides of doing this on an Siii.
Just going to give it a go and see.

Personally I didn't notice any benefits other than it sounds much nicer but its free so worth doing for that alone.

As for how to do the snorkus it can be quite confusing with all the slight variations gen wise and some people do it slightly different.

What I did was removed the small pipe section in the air box, it sits under the filter itself and seems pointless to have. Then I just removed the big box in the wheel well that loops round to the front of the battery. I kept the L shaped pipe that goes from the airbox to the hole in the wheel arch as it makes sense to me so its sucking colder air in from there rather than the engine bay.

Like I said this is how I done it. Others have removed the L shaped pipe also.

Oh and most people replace the filter with a K&N one which are around £40 new

You will need to jack your car up to remove the big box or drive up onto a high kerb. No need to remove the wheel. Removing the battery will help with getting to the bolts for the big box.

Remove this

Keep this in
I don't have a pic of the small pipe to be removed in the air box but its obvious when you open it.

Don't forget to reset the ECU after if you don't remove the battery.
