Wut?

Just fit a cold air feed to the airbox and route it down near the acoustic valve,
you don't need the bloody thing anyway.

I don't really know what you're asking me mate.

The standard airbox has one short air feed that attaches under the box at the back,
and one in the side that connects to the acoustic valve.

You need both so the box can be fed with cold air from the short one that gets its air from the grill,
and the long one on the right that gets its air from the acoustic valve/wheel arch area.

You can just disconnect the hoses on a 1*2s valve and leave it where it is,
i've been running a V6 airbox for years that's not connected to anything,
the acoustic valve is still in it's place doing whatever it does but without any hoses attached.
