    the airbox actually just slots into place in 3points, 2 at the top and one underneath. no fixing required, the inlet hoes into the engine will hold it in place. the intake hose require a lot of fiddling lol and 2 screws. i believe the oe ones are torx head. why not upgrade to the veccy c air intake while ure at it.

    The airbox does actually have one torx screw to hold it down. This is at the back of the airbox nearest to the bulkhead.
