... well that same trick would work in an intake tract as well ... and
wouldn't nearly be as restrictive as a stock air filter.  I'm not
familiar with the layout of the Motronic system intake tract ... but if
you could put that honeycomb right in front of the hot wire ... or
perhaps at the K&N it might just do the trick.
