It seemsa previous owner has fitted air filter and left this in place and had the ducting directed to the filter thinking it was a direct air feed
I'd like to remove it but would like to know what it does first or if its needed?
I've bought some m5 flanged button head bolts with some Form C washers. Plan on just using flanged serrated nylocs on the back, easy to buzz on and off with a rattle gun and a spanner.Yep. Just run an 8mm drill through the existing holes, then treat the hole and riv-nut away.

Cheers Deano I'm actually really enjoying a new projectGreat progress - you’re putting the rest of us to shame.
I’ve got a few boxes of odds & sods so post if you need anything specific, I’d be happy to donate to the cause.
Good call but tbh at the moment I got so much more to be spending money onIf you're going to uprate the audio I'd consider adding some decent sound deadening and making sure nothing rattles.
My old Clio used to rattle like f**k even at moderate volumes.
Yeah they done me a map which the car drove like s**t, took it back various times they couldn't put it right, car kept going into limp mode, spent hours and hours in their waiting room, not ideal on a brand new motor so I got it flashed back to standard. They mapped my mates golf r and with 2000 miles on the clock it went bang, they said flash it back to standard it's undetectable and take it to vw under warranty, which he did, VW told him to do one as it had been remapped.Why? personal experience??
i think a couple of grand was always on the cardsI saved a £600 once.
Owed me £2700 ish when finished.
yeah the fella breaking the cup said that hopefully he will dig it out for meImpressive progress. Gonna be great when its finished. The center vents are part of the lower dash and a right pain to swap over.
Keep up the progress
Mate the dash has been out of my car so many times to do various things i fail to remember.. The Clio dash removal is an absolute doddle..i think a couple of grand was always on the cards
yeah the fella breaking the cup said that hopefully he will dig it out for me
i have done a few dash swaps over the years a painstaking job
This was my map, it makes stock torque until after 2.5k then spikes up, when really a turbo diesel you want a big lump of torque at 1500rpm as i had on the previous car with the same engine! i knew the minute i looked at the graph it was going to drive horribly, they said just test it for a few days and any issues come back to usI had mine mapped there as well, Took it to EFI in the end and should of done so in the first place, Probably a post in my Megane thread somewhere with graphs
