Well spent the morning tinkering and with an old lancia boost pipe and an aluminium pipe from halfrauds (£1.79-cos they priced it wrong :D )
I have bodged this together, looks tacky but it works it has improved the throttle response quite a bit!and it now has more sense of urgency!


cut a bit of trim off


the boost pipe on the ali pipe


the pipe onto the original


bumper back on!

Didn't take long to get it off, thanks to Andy's guide!

the hole seems to feed air in really well so i won't use a trumpet, think its good as it is!

Phil,

Might have to copy you on this one matey, that is perfect as it is a much better source of cold air without showing it off too much. I would love to be showing it off a lot more but I'm still a bit wary of the dealers over here. I'm looking forward to poping the bumper off soon and feeding through that new cold air feed.

Was it much cutting and buggering about? If you could, do you think you could put up a small how to as well? No pressure mate.

cheers
Dave

Hello mate
I was concerned about rain and crap going into the pipe, so sideways will still suck air into the pipe as it rushes into the front grill, and as you say isn't noticeable really.
As for a guide follow Andy's guide for the front bumper its dead easy!
then just remove the battery and tray.
remove the cover, then undo the battery +ve and -ve terminals (10mm bolt) tuck the leads out f the way
remove the battery sleeve (black plastic cube thing)
undo battery retaining clamp 10 or 13mm (forgot)
remove battery and breather pipe
remove battery tray(plastic one) 3 X 13mm bolts
you should now have enough access to work
You need a bit of an angle from the end of the OE air feed through the gap to the front end, but you cant miss it!

as for the hole i made where the lancia pipe sits(black)
just mark round it where you want the pipe to come thorough and cut it, but it is very robust plastic might need a drill and a jigsaw to cut it!

phil :D

Thanks mate, I'm on it. That will be great. Have you got a pod or flat panel sports filter on? Just wondering if it makes a better noise too :)

Cheers
Dave

Its the ITG panel, at the end of the day its got good flow now with the air all the way through and the box is quite large as is the filter so i dont think i would gain anything more with a cone filter

I left the OE plastic feed into the bottom of the airbox but only because my aluminium pipe wasn't long enough if you get a longer one i'd run it from the bottom of the airbox to the front bumper it will be easier and less joints

If you put your ear at bumper level you can hear it sucking, so a bit more induction noise but not over loud, but that might be as i have the ITG in!

Cheers mate, if you look at the 3rd picture down you will see the battery tray with the aluminium pipe going into it underneath, the OE coldair feed literally ends just under the battery tray toward the front of the car

any size duct from 50mm to 100mm will do you mate, no more than a 100mm tho as that is tight anyway, 75mm is the best size in my opinion

easy to bend and easier to run
