    Derestricting the Airbox

    I have ordered a performance panel filter for my mk4 1.6 16v sxi astra which will be here tomorrow, I have also bought, straight from Vauxhall, a 1.6 16v Vectra (new shape, not sure which mk they are!!) air intake pipe which, to me, seems bloody massive!!!! is this the right pipe?! I spoke to the man on the phone at Vauxhall about my plans and he said this was the right one but i mean this is MASSIVE!!! help!!!

    Yea thats the right one, Veccy C intake pipe is larger than the Astra mk4 but not as large as the Dbilias one of Geoff's crazy double one

    IIRC all Veccy C's have the same pipe, my bro's 2.0 Turbo (Petrol - Z20 NET) has the same intake pipe.

    The springy bit is a seperate part needed to connect the pipe to the airbox

    The pipe on it's own looks like the lower one in this piccy...
