    Cant find vectra air intake!

    Hi
    Just joined. Got a 2002 sri 2.2.I live in Sydney Australia.
    Read the threads regarding how to unrestrict the air intake on an astra (this works with the 2,2 right ? all the threads i read were for smaller ecotec engines) and think this should be no problem.
    But i can't find a Vectra C airbox inlet pipe! They never released the diesel version here so the part is not stocked by Holden (Vauxhall) in Australia. Have tried a couple of places in the UK but they wont send parts to Oz.
    Does anyone in the UK know who might send the part to me in Oz?
    or
    Is there an alternative airbox intake that fits that i might be able to find?
    or
    Is there anywhere in Australia that i can get the part? (i noticed a couple of Aussie members)
    Thanks in advance

    How big are the parts? And what do they weigh? If thet are quite light and large they may charge by volume...
