    CMC Air intake:)

    After looking around at air intakes and not wanting to spent a fortune I decided to make my own.
    Got everything I need of eBay. Total cost was around ÂŁ60.
    It makes a good sound once the car hit 3kRPM.

    Started off with the cold air feed, which was a mod in itself.

    Just before going in.


    In its final place.


    From another angle.



    Looks ok doesn't it?
    Any suggestion to improve on, other than a heat sheild.

    Thanks Corey

    Haha thanks yeah just a little bit. But better being bright.
    What would be best for a heat sheild? Aluminium sheets surrounding it on the sides and top or...?

    Its a close fit to the bonnet but no rubbing or anything so it's all good

    Watch out for puddles, if that air feed sucks in water it will bend a con rod!

    that won't happen, there is no way that there will be so much suction at the cone that it will pull water up the cold air feed dispite the fact it's not even connected! I've had this happen to me before an it was on a bmc cda with sealed intake and cold air feed mounted to the bottom of the bumper, my cylinders were full of water and I ended up with a new engine
