    Question What to do with hose from air box

    I just installed a mti lid on my 02 Camaro SS and it got the little filter thing for the hose and installed it, but what do most people do with the hose afterwards? do you tuck it away, cut it(to hide it lower), or just leave it there standing up?

    Thanks

    I secured it to the little metal headlight cross member to the side of the lid, I made sure that it had room to breath.

    Better yet, just get rid of the entire AIR system, and there will be no hose!

    Remove the hose, the air pump it's attatched too in the fender well, the long hose that goes back along the fender towards the engine, the air pipes that bolt to the manifolds/headers and put blockoff plates on them.

    Nope...the a.i.r. is all emissions crap. You will throw codes when it's removed so you'll need to get those tuned out.

    I zip tied mine to the little eyelet near the top of the radiator. Just don't kink the hose, it'll throw a SES light if it's restricted too much.
