I have a hissing sound whenever I start my car and then once that hissing goes away about a minute on cold start I proceed to get a very loud annoying knocking sound. It appears to be coming from a silver canister looking part that is fed by a large air hose from the bottom of the air box, and then a small vaccuum line over to the intake manifold. The part itself sits behind the head just to the left of the cooling sensor.

I need to know what this thing is so I can get it replaced, its very fucking annoying.

Sounds like a Secondary Air Injection, but I hope somebody that knows more about the Facelifts chimes in.

Thanks, and does anyone know if this is carried only by the dealer? I called a few parts stores and they laughed at me.
