Must have been a large 80mm then... as the one I bought had no chance. The link above is spot on, I ordered mine from the place linked earlier in the thread
No amount of elbow grease would make it work... It was submerged in boiling water and lubed up, there was NO way it would go on. They must have been different
That's very strange my MAF was 75 and the filter was 80, but with a 70-80 adaptor (as suggested from a few people) I managed to get it on, used a littl force but no lube or anything was needed, you may have been sold the wrong size...
Silicone hoses are a non-reactive rubber and are capable of holding 300*+ whilst retaining its overall properties...What exactly were you trying to do with a bowl of boiling water?
Science is upset by this.
I quite often say I'm going to do things.
Then never do them.
What do I do with the heat sink looking cable?
This just fits with an 80>70mm reducer, had to work hard to get that focker on! Worth it for a nice tight fit (that's what she said).
Mine is clipped in nice and tight, there is definitely a bit more poke from doing it and it inspires my heavy foot with the roar. It's still subtle enough to cruise by unnoticed, especially near home where you don't want to be labelled as a 'boy racer' especially as I'm not a boy now
I didn't have to slit it, just sit it on something sturdy and get about 3mm in on one side, then squeeze towards the other side to get that side in, then slowly push harder to get it all the way in.
I'll continue reading down the 'must do mods' - I have some s3 callipers so need some pads to go in them, on the shopping list for this week!
I stuck a clip on the filter side aswel just to make sure the little slit has no chance of causing issues !!
Im on the hunt for S3 pad carriers, will get the pads and disc when l find those as they seem to be very ellusive lol
What l really want first is a samco, forge TIP. I just cant find a cheap 1 lol Got paid off recently so buying car parts is not high on the wifes priority list
Im bidding on a forge DV on ebay, if l get that then the TIP then its time for a stage 1
I prefer a more oem look, anyone tried incorporating an oem box around it?
Believe Tuffty put the OEM box around a jetex cone filter but wasn't entirely pleased with the results so swapped back to a panel filter
Handling mods++. GTX30 soon-ish. Hiding parts from the mrs since 2011. Build thread
Oh...Could've sworn I heard him say that in another thread...perhaps I am mistaken!! I'm sure Tuffty will be along shortly to reprimand me
Meh OEM - I like causing a 'wtf is that thing?!'
Its true... I wasn't entirely pleased with it but instead of going back to a panel filter I relocated the battery and fitted a bigger cone filter
While its a Jetex filter the principles remain for hiding the S2000 filter although I think its a bit wider at the base than the normal Jetex...
tuffy what is this bigger blue filter?? me likey!!
-----My Build Thread!!----
