Rear air intakes.

Recommended Posts

Is it standard for the near side to be blanked, but the drivers side to not have the blanking plate? I can see inside and there is a cooling fan..


I just expected them to be the same.  Have read some people have removed the blanking to get better airflow.. but this would allow debris in?


no idea what’s the norm..?

Near side intake is air induction for air filter & offside intake is for cooling of the engine bay.


"De-Snorking" the nearside intake by removing the restriction plate allows for supposedly better induction flow... I've got my CS desnorked & it does increase the intake roar at higher rpm but I don't notice any improvement in power.


Some folk remove the restriction plate and then fit a 3D printed type of plate (pointless imo)... I've never had any issue with debris/water ingress...

Have a look here for more info on the de-snork mod:




If you don't fancy the cost with shipping and everything, I'd be happy to print some of these for cheap(er). Easy enough to do a custom design too, if you want that. I'd be inclined to make the holes a little larger, myself.


I would need my hands on a PN 98757575700, though.


Custom CaymanOC design, anybody?
