    Easiest mod

    Hello all.....
    Did my airbox today and have to say it really was a simple job, i'm not mechanical minded so the thought of it was a bit daunting, yet i could have asked me nan to this for me it was that easy......!
    I started by using the conventional method of pressing the lugs to release the pipes, but after slightly losing my patience i went for the Alternative method...... the good old hammer....! soon shifted the barstards, and with a light spray of the filter i put it all back...!
    As for performance my car has always seemed slightly sluggish in 1st and 2nd, but now i can feel that slight extra zip, and it revs more freely...
    So over all i'm happy for the sake of £24......
    There are two great teams in Liverpool.....Liverpool and Liverpool Reserves..........

    I went inot my local Halfarts & got meself sum 70/75mm ali stretchy pipe which is made by Green Cotton, it cost me about £10 and stretches to about 1m long & moulds into the underside of the slam panel so it can be hidden & attached easily
