Its called a balance or silencer i think ? , it was designed to keep induction noise down from what I understand.

Re: Semi Circled Shaped tube near MAF ED V8...whats it called?

LOL. Officially it's called a resonator. It's purely to decrease intake noise and of course that defeats the purpose of a V8 lol. If you want you can just remove it and plug the hole it fits into. Won't make a difference except you may get a bit nicer sound - dunno, I haven't bothered taking mine off yet cause I'm waiting to get a Herrod SS intake pipe instead :)

should i reorder the resonator or the plastic intake bit from a EB Series 1..that way there would be no opening for it?

Re: Semi Circled Shaped tube near MAF ED V8...whats it called?

It's really up to you Extreme_2020 - I don't think there'd be much difference either way whether you had the resonator or not. If you don't want it but don't wanna fork for a new pipe you could just clamp a 'bung' in the existing hole to plug it. Just depends what money you wanna spend and maybe what look you want in your engine bay etc. really.

Re: Semi Circled Shaped tube near MAF ED V8...whats it called?

id be really supprised if they still stock the series 1 pipe.
from what ive noticed, if there is an identical or almost identical part, they will stock the later model part.
