    px Viper on a 2.2 anyone ?..................

    As subject, has anyone on here got a Viper fitted to their 2.2?
    If so, is it any good?
    And have you got any pics?

    I would imagine it would be a funny fitment on the 2.2 as the air flow would have to double back on itself?

    Anyone.................................

    Cheers

    build your own steve

    i can get these sheilded cone filters in either red, blue or chrome for £30

    the all you do is feed in a flexi hose (around £10 to buy) and thats it

    due to mine being a 1.8 i didnt need a flexi hose as the old air feed run straight into it but i have seen the 2.2 and your right it would be hard but a flexi hose should do it

    cheaper tha £300 for a viper and they even sound good

    Cheers Craig, but mine is a larger intake,which is a bit larger than yours. What size do they go up to ?

    Craig that is a pretty good setup but it would still suck in hot air from the engine bay, maybe you could fit a large bore intake pipe and seal it to the front of the induction system.

    Is that the one which generates a cyclone? It can make the 2.2 run too lean.

    Filtration of most after market filters are pretty pants, the best one i say was on a apexi cone filter. It had filtration of a factory filter with increase performance .

    I have a viper on my 2.2 got it for £50 with pipe that when you bend it back on itself it maintains its shape ! It also runs very well alot quicker but not as loud as most inductions

    Erm, how exactly, there is an expensive engine management system in there to adjust for things like that?
