You will change the effective length of inlet (including plenum volume) without using airbox. It will negatively effect the running of the car unless other mods are carried out.

Hi,
I have just removed my OEM replacement KN airfilter. Cleaned and re-oiled with the KN kit and its back in.
Cant beat the OEM air box/plenum with upgraded long life air filter.

Cheers,
Iain.

Indeed Iain. Most of those induction kits make a lot of noise but loose power (and usually use more fuel)
I wouldn't bother unless you carry out other mods.
