I know that many of you have modded this out of your car but.. between the air filter and intake manifold there is a crooked rubber piece that appears to be a handle on this air intake line WTF???? What is it???

Thanks

That handle thing that you're talking about is actually a handle that Nissan puts on so this way when the mechanic's have to work on our cars they can jump up on the fenders and lift the engine out of the car :D

na just kiding I have no clue what it really is but I don't think it has a real reason.....

The handle that you're talking about, where is that at exactly? I think I remember it when I took out the stock intake tube, box and everything else..

Hey Marvin... Like I said its between the Air filter and the Intake manifold. It's just before (1") the Main clamp that clamps the air Inlet tube to the Intake Manifold. Its like 1" in diameter and seems hollow and its crooked like a handle. It's wierd, but must serve some purpose.

I'm thinking mybe that rubber accordian pice is universal and maybe it's used in another car and that might be for some sort of an option that our cars don't have....
