Looks that way too. I received this from Perrin when I was asking about the benefits of the new pipe:

That's weird. Is it an empty chamber? Maybe it's also for additional sound. Or to collect water/moisture.

I think they call them resonators.

Just does things with sound, it works best in the bin.

the chamber collects moisture / water that might enter the intake system, most N/A cars have them integrated into the airbox, i would imagine this is on the pipe because of space constraints dunno anymore

RE: Needed a change of pace
Hi all, apologies for being MIA for a bit, over Feb I moved to George and am busy settling in here.

I have further mods that have come in yesterday:
1: Rexpeed carbon hood struts (to remove the crappy bonnet stay & to create more work room in the engine bay)
2: Tomei Duracon shift Knob
3: GCS Reverse Lockout (Red)
4: LED Fog Light bulbs
5: LED Dome light, Vanity mirror lights, boot light and license plate lights

Haven't done any shots of the lights in the dark as of yet but will do that tonight

And to top it all off I have removed the STI body kit and resprayed them form the base grey to black and will be installing it this weekend and do an oil service at the same time
