quick question..
when the air pump is removed... shall i cap the hose to the engine ? or i put a small shield and remain it to be breathable ?

i'm refering to the output of the air pump... the input is from the air intake... out put is somewhere into the engine... shall i cap that ? or leave it breathing ?

you can cap this thing off, up to you. It actually leads to no where, if you've removed your cats. either way, it really makes no difference if you cap it or not. however, if you choose not to cap it, you're car will make a "mooo" type sound when its cold. the other (& more complicated) option would be to remove the hard pipes & related hardware. You'd need to fabricate block off plates to block off (duh!) the holes where the pipes once were. plus side, the engine bay looks SO much cleaner.

Ease of Mod : 4 / 5 (Easy)
Cost of Mod : 4 / 5 (Cheap Cheap)
Mod's Value : 4 / 5 (For the minimal effort you have to put in, this is one heck of a "value buy" mod
Should you do it : Hell yeah
Pros : Quicker engine response, Engine Bay looks SO much cleaner
Cons : U're choking good ol' mother earth quicker, but no diff if your main cat's gone

when you pull the cable, nothing should happen, as your cat is already missing, and the airpump is literally sitting there doing nothing. there is no side effect from removing the air pump at this point of time, as i've stated, you have no cat, hence, air pump = dead weight. if you just plug out the wire socket, there really is no benefit to this. the main reason why ppl remove the airpump is to 1. reduce weight (hunk of iron IS heavy), less 1 pulley, less one heat soaking unit, and for the fact that its sitting there doing nothing, its can be considered junk anyways.

Rattle plastic? Cracking sound? Solution is here....

Rattle plastic? Cracking sound? Solution is here....

1. Remove all plastic panels. Be careful not to destroy it as I think it should be fragile.

2. Time to respray it to desire color.

3. Before you install it back, use a 3M tape (those thick tape with sponge type) and tape it at the edge of the plastic. To act as cushioning.

Well, while doing step 3, you can add tapes at any desire spot which you think will damn the sound.


Good luck

Noisy cabin?

Noisy cabin? Well most probably the noise comes from the gear box console. Solution to this problem is, take out the plastic console and apply a layer of insulation material. Try to cover as much area as possible. After that, viola... quiet cabin, or at least better than last time...
