    Simota Carbon Induction kit

    Alright, i bought a carbon induction kit off here last week (cheers Beezo) I knew it was going to be a pain to fit as i had seen some writeups on here, but i never thought it would be as bad as it turned out to be.

    Beezo had already filed out the hole to take the MAF but to my surprise the pipe is not deep enough to house the maf anyway

    I thought about making a spacer for the maf flange but tbh I thought it looked rubbish anyway, the square on the top of it looks like a right home brew affair nor is it the right way round, i dont know how they dare sell the kit

    a hacksaw a piece of 3 inch rubber pipe and 3 jubilee clips later and it looks to me how it should have been designed in the first place.







    So in effect i cut up the only piece of the kit that i could not buy off the shelf or make myself, the tig welded ally bit, but i reckon its a lot neater now

    I fitted the OE heatsheild back on by bending the top over in the vice and securing it with the screws that hold the pipe you see in the pictere

    After all of that i was so glad that it sounds nice !

    Good to see it fitted, I must admit i never thought of trimming the pipe down. Looks nice neat and tidy.
