It blocks you from fitting the brace.

ecotech is version of the engine

the bit where it says ecotech is a plastic cover, this was removed as i cant fit the mantzel inlet manifold with it (it adds around 20bhp)

exhaust wrap can cause ur manifold to crack as it builds up the temperature muchly!
also removing the secondary air injection is easy just undo it and blank bits off lol, and regarding emmissions with it before it gets bought up, mine flew thru the mot with a 7year old cat on it and no secondary air injection

Sorry for quoting a full picture, but i notice that you have removed the standard black plastic tube which feeds air into the air box. Has this made any improvements?
