    Hey guys, can someone tell me what the can on the drivers side of the firewall is for? the smaller hose coming out of it goes over to the passenger side into the cab. the bigger one isn't connected to anything currently. any advise would be great.
    cheers

    Sounds like the vacuum source for your duct controls. (They are vacuum actuated.)
    The can is normally on the passenger side but your car has probably been rearranged to right-hand drive.

    The bigger hose should go to the intake manifold.

    Cheers. thanks for that. was wondering why the cab controls didn't work properly. thought that the controls themselves were broken, maybe not!
