    bmc airfilter.

    just had a bmc airfilter for my gsi turbo ,and just woundering where i can get some kind of blue induction pipe from ?.
    i've got courtney sport turbo pipe's on the car so would like something the same for the bmc induction pipe.

    the induction pipe from bmc ,in my opinion look's cheap and tacky which is why im trying to go for the profesional look .
    any help will be warmly recieved.
    has anyone got any pictures of there bmc fitted as i also dont like the bracket they give you to fit the filter to your wing ,so thinking about making my own

    the original pipe from behind the grill fits inside the opening of the BMC

    it is a tight fit but does go in and stays in

    i then taped aroind the join to seal it with thick rape-tape ( carpet tape )

    I used part of the ducting that you get with the filter, then joined this onto the Vectra c Pipe

    Word of warning if you are looking for the Blue hosing to do this, I hade this on it when I was using the Viper induction kit had it in a "S" Bend. What was then happening was the pipe was collapsing when I floored it as its was sucking in so much air.
