However, these flaps are known to come loose & can be sucked into the engine causing extreme, & in some cases terminal engine failure. We remove the entire intake manifold, remove the standard swirl flaps, clean & replace with our aluminium-alloy CNC-machined-Viton-sealed blanks before reassembly. This has a negligible, often-unnoticeable effect on performance or economy but totally removes the possibility of expensive engine damage through flap or screw ingestion. Worry-free motoring! Don’t forget we are IMI Professional Register Technicians - your assurance of certified & approved current technical competence!
