Looks that way too. I received this from Perrin when I was asking about the benefits of the new pipe:

That's weird. Is it an empty chamber? Maybe it's also for additional sound. Or to collect water/moisture.

I think they call them resonators.

Just does things with sound, it works best in the bin.

the chamber collects moisture / water that might enter the intake system, most N/A cars have them integrated into the airbox, i would imagine this is on the pipe because of space constraints dunno anymore

3: GCS Reverse Lockout (Red)
4: LED Fog Light bulbs

Took a small time to adjust to the snappy and mechanical feel that came with the change but I am absolutely loving it now
