    im in the process of getting my car ready for a stage 2 remap and on the list is to modify and improve the air inlets to the airbox,

    so far i have smoothed the inside of the box, but now im trying to ger some cold air feed ducting to the dirty side of the filter box, but cant seem to find any decent way of doing this!

    has any one got any pics of what they have done?

    cheers

    yeah it is, just enough room for it to pass through

    hard to say about seeing any gains, as i haven't really driven the car without. i fitted it the day i got the car
