I could spend £90 for a kit but I read on hear someone plugging the hole in the air box with an aerosol lid.

I’ve been through the garage, shed and under the sink, none of them are the right side.

Anyone know what fits best ?

Thank you gentlemen.... Gillette Shaving Foam... I think I remember it being that, maybe it was your post I read. Does that fit into the air box end or up into the pipe?

Alex... I will have one off you if you do make them.

Just trim it down with a stanley knife so it fits nicely over the airbox inlet then push the rubber hose over it and tighten the jubilee clip Thumb

One of those small Vaseline pot lids fit too

Spyder performance near Woking do a decent kit for 996 and 997 for £40:

I am going to get rid of the resonator in the air box too to free up some air flow . Will get a mates dremel on it as they are plastic welded in. Unlike the 996 which is screwed in

Will get some pics up soon

Gents remember if you are leaving the resonator in situ then you need a cover but if your dremmeling out the resonator you will need a bung as the lip you put the cover on is part of the resonator and will not be there when you remove the resonator . Thumb

thanks phil

I am thinking cut it all out but then glue back in or try and keep the neck of the resonator in the air box so I can keep the bung in and the oem piping.
