    What pipe for cold air feed

    Just wondered what pipe everyone has used? i know its not exactly gonna have to be the most developed technology, looking around there are kits available but all i need is some pipe and maybe a ring with a lip so i can silicone into the air box and create a better seal

    this is for the A3 btw...thinking 4" pipe?

    ideas peeps

    exactly what i wanted to know, cheers chaps

    wasnt sure if i should look for solid piping to ensure maximum air flow inwards......but think if its thick enough (4") then it wont really benefit as it isnbt under pressure as such

    i did the same on my corsa, the only thing i would say it watch thats its not to close to the engine as mine melted on a 2 hour drive as it was pretty close to the engine. they are only made from PVC

    erm, thats the reason i went for the alu stuff, once fitted it will withstand heat better than pvc..... if not then i'll just buy the silicone stuff (wasnt my money either and was getting grief for spending yet more of hers haha)

    Any ideals how difficult it is to fit 4" ducting?? I had a quick look under the bonnet and it looks a PITA to do!!

    Does anyone who has done this have any tips to make it any easier??

    Fit a fmic, overwise you havent really got a chance, if you do manage it, itll be squashed and be pointless.

    Think I need to give it a whirl. Allways thought the 4" pipework would be too large to get through the gap without being squashed.
