    extremely FAST replys needed. veccy c pipe?!?!?

    hey all im currently fitting my veccy c pipe (as im typing this) and need to ask a quivck question before i screw it all back. the adaptor that comes from the pipe to the airbox, i have finally fitted it and turned it 90 degrees and it fits fine onto the airbox, thing is the adaptor is pushed up against the hose coming from the radiator to the engine, i was wondering if this gets too hot it might melt the adaptor as its plastic, or is it supposed to be touching. its touching quite a lot as its a tight squeeze?

    sorry about the big picture,dont no how to resize

    It should be fine - mine's been touching the rad pipe for two years now with no ill effect. Also the pipe won't get hot enough to melt the plastic.

    Glad to see you got it fitted finally
