NM Engineering kit that I have

The WMW new delete kit:

In regards to the WMW Noise Maker Delete, what have other's done to the noise maker pipe and the special fitting that connects to the firewall? I'm trying to keep outside noise to a minimum and prevent engine heat from entering the cabin.

Thanks.

What headaches are you referring to other than the physical ones we all get from time to time? Hopefully not installing the WMW Noise Maker Delete, it looks like a piece of art!

The headache comment was referring to post #175 (my fault for not quoting the post, and the site didn't help with new page ) about the hose blowing off of a customer pcv part.

I can't speak for others, but as for that little inlet on the bulkhead, I left it alone when I installed the NM cold side tube. Between my catless exhaust and DoS intake, I wouldn't notice any noise from that tiny area.

I left the hole open. Only concern is the A/C can possibly pull air through that hole if the cowl space is not segmented (haven't really examined). I was considering cutting off the elbow from the existing part and sealing it off but I threw the old parts away. This would be one of those times a 3d printer would be helpful.

I did a search for my 2009 MCS and on the ECS website (https://www.ecstuning.com/b-genuine-...r/13719806688/) and it said it wouldn't fit. Is the 2010+ R56 that different?

According to the ECS website, this will not work for my 2009 MCS, is that a mistake on the website or will it work?
Thanks

We have it as a fit on our site, not as a mod part. On here we tell people about the mods unless noted as people on our site don't always use the forums. We can update it on our site to inform, thanks for pointing it out.

I used a home depot plug with the threads filed off and it fits very well.
