    I'm going to guess this is some kind of silencing box for the intake and can be taken off and plugged without worry if issue? This is located just in front of the throttle body.

    It’s only purpose is to pipe engine noise to the cabin for a ‘sportier’ sound. Kinda dumb huh.

    There is a thread about this on here with different caps and what not that people have used. For fear of boost leaks though I just went with the EPP delete. Sucks to pay $150 for a little piece of pipe but it’s also piece of mind.

    Edit: plus, it makes the price of the hot pipe kit later a tad easier to swallow. Not much... but a tad. Haha

    I would definitely recommend getting piping instead of just capping it off. Caps have been known to fly off and create boost leaks, or just slowly deteriorate and leak over time. Getting the piping is worth the extra $$$

    $150 yikes. The MKS part must be cheaper, especially from a junkyard.
