Fresh Air Intake

I just installed a fresh air intake in my '85 911. Well after I was done I noticed a hose not hooked to anything hanging there. It turns out that it hooks up to the factory air box. There isn't a place to hook up this hose to my new intake. Does anyone know what this is for? What should I do with it now? Plug it? Leave it hanging there? Tie it up out of the way? Any help on this would be great.

Thanks,
Bill

I may be wrong but I had the same issue where it came loose from my box. I think someone mentioned that it goes to the charcoal canister. (I'm not sure where it's located or what it does but I think it's for emisions.)
I would think you could just leave it.
Hope some one else can shed some light on it.

by the way did the intake help in any way?

Correct it goes to the charcoal cannister located in the right rear fenderwell. A number of aftermarket mounting plates with a vacuum hose connection. Won't hurt to leave it disconnected.

Thanks a lot you guys. I won't worry about it then. I'm just going to tie it up out of the way. That's why I love this web site for stuff like this!!!!

Thanks,
Bill

I had to comment quickly, I love it when MY garage ends up looking just like another Pelican's -- can of PBlaster, Stabil, and Oil. I have the same order even on my shelf.... TOO FUNNY.

Be careful and check if it isn't the breather that (stock) goes into the air intake. If that's the one...it'll "vapor" the engine compartment and make a mess.

Either find a way to hook up to similar nipple..or have it dump into a washer bottle-type device....but arrange it so it has a liquid drain valve on the bottom and a vent on top.....the little vent on top should then have a mini version of the cone filter shown as for the normal, aftermarket-style air intake.

It is definitely the hose that hooks up to the factory air box. The aftermarket intake doesn't have a place to hook this hose up. I've driven the car a couple of times and it doesn't act like it needs to be hooked up. How does it make a mess? Does the canister purge out this hose and into the air intake? That's scary..

And to answer Steviee 7's question: After driving it a couple of times I can't tell the difference. Not even in the sound department.
This was just the first part of a bigger plan. Next I'm putting on a performance exhaust and performance chip. I'm also starting to backdate my engine compartment.


Thanks,
Bill
