Comments on K&N's email to me? (BTW - iPD told me this fit my vehicle)...<p>I asked this -<p>Just installed the Typhoon 69-9000 on 2008 Volvo C30 T5 US Spec.<p>I noticed there is an inlet tube for a carbon filter vacuum, which I <br>do not have.<p>Any recommendations on what to do with that open inlet?<p><br>Thanks,<br>Josh Burris<p>--------------------------<br>He answered with this - <p>Dear josh,<p>Thank you for your interest in K&N products. At this time we do not make an intake system for the 2008 C30 us spec. If you look on our website we list non-US only. I recommend returning the intake system for a refund.<p>If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact our customer support department at 1-(800)-858-3333.<p>Thank you for writing, <p>James Johnston<br>Technical Support Representative,<br>K&N Engineering, Inc.<br>Phone: (800) 858-3333<p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

Return the system?! That's just silly talk. There are two hose inlets on the intake pipe. One is not used in the US cars so plug it up with something. Some guys have placed rubber caps, screwed in bolts, or did like I did which was just connect both inlets to the evap system using a T hose connector to attach the evap hose to both inlets. (at the time I didn't have anything to plug up the second inlet)

Re: (fletcher33)

As Fletcher said, cap off th hole and be done with it.<p>Not a big modification to be made and these types of adjustments are common with after market parts.

Re: (apoLLoT5^)

I purchased from iPD (google em).<br>I drove from Wiesbaden to Mannheim yesterday, doing around 120mph in some places...no temp lights or warning lights. <br>It does seem it has some improved acceleration...sound is great.<p>Good Luck.
