    Air box derestricted - Cheers Coo

    Just de-restricted my air box and fitted a courtenay panel filter I picked up at PV:



    Cheers Coo for your guide on doing the air box, much appreciated.

    Good going.
    You wanna change that tiny air intake pipe now for a Vectra C one. All info in the Tech section.
