Hey Vtcommspac,

I would highly recommend cleaning the MAF whilst your there as shown in the link below

YouTube - Cleaning your Mass Airflow Sensor

Also have a read through the fitting instructions below before you attempt the installation

COLD AIR INTAKE ENCLOSURE HOLDEN VT-VY V6 - Mace Engineering Group

One thing that is not clear on the instructions is that the MAF needs to be rotated by 90 degrees such that the connector is pointing towards the bonnet. You'll have to notch a section of the intake tube to do this ideally

Hope this helps

Cheers,
Steve

i didnt end up cleaning it, will do it soon as its not hard to get to
any way of making the induction noise louder, or if you know any ways of making it work better on a VT, someppl have said something about some panels you cut out behind the headlight

Not really. We designed it with a like to help make it look stock and to keep the boys in blue happy :) I you really wanted to you could take the lid off and line the top edge with adhesive foam, with the adhesive side going on the box of coarse :)
