    Inside a 355 air box.
    This in under the air filter and also under the silver screen (pictured but moved out of the way)
    It looks like house insulation ?
    Does it even have a part number ?
    It is in 3 pieces under the screen in the picture, which compresses it and holds it in place with the 3 screws on the silver screen.

    I tried removing it to see how it sounds and any performance improvements... nope... sounds really bad since there is a seep hole on the bottom of the box which makes whistling noises if the damping material is not there.

    So the acoustic line is serious ;)
    I have been here so long I can't tell if someone is pulling my leg or not.
    Of course my off the wall comments have not helped either.

    If it has one the dealer is probably charging Tiffany prices for the stuff.

    Don't you just hate it when your Kimchi explodes? Hate that. I'd hit the beach after that as well.

    Traditionally, they bury it in the ground for 3 months. The darkness, pressure and temperature (not to mention the recipe which varies from family to family) provides the unique flavor. As a result, traditional kimchee has different flavors from season to season and is named as such "winter kimchee", "summer kimchee", etc.

    I studied taekwondo from Koreans "back in the day" and learned about it from them.
