i think main reason why its there is to reduce the noise of the engine, maybe lil with heat too?

not all 00-04 foci came with them. my 05 st and my mum's 06 zx4 both did not come with one

i decided to save some money and just installed my rear dogbone. andrei helped me a bit before he had to leave to go study. lil test run and so far im loving it. as i accelerate u can feel a lil more vibration but not much at all. its shame its raining. really wanted to test it out.
finally fixed my corroded battery terminal, was going to install my new tb but cant find it. fail

They should have come with one, helps with heat and noise. You can run without one, but over time it will only cause your hood to seperate from the under-frame work and can lead to paint failure.

i replaced my ugly factory one with this.....
