    all that aircon vent in the glovebox does on mine is keep my ipod cold...
    I never knew there was an actual vent to the glovebox I heard it could be used as a coolbox for drinks...I thought that was a joke!!

    In any case, good idea Keano...but what about in winter when you have that air con cranked right up?

    Keano - you could do that easily by extending a hose through the bulkhead - good idea for those who keep the aircon
    You can see the difference here .... the JCW comes with a modified bulkhead with the bigger opening

    yeah it is there on mine and keeps the ipod damn cold but thats all it does at the moment...

    it is possible to turn the feed off for if your warming the car. that may be something that is modified though as i think that valve just stops air from coming into the glovebox, would need something further 'back'

    Yeah as you say you lose power with aircon on (i think its turned off for dyno runs) but i was thinking of it as more of a bonus for in traffic - must admit mine is just on all the time as its auto aircon... how much of an effect does running with the aircon on have to power ? it may be that having the 'aircon' feed working would gain back that drag perhaps but as a bonus help keep things cool when stationary ???

    just a thought...

    so brownpants is right in that the extra hole is from the stock design. is it blocked up in the stock intake too ??
