    need help ASAP - BMC CDA

    ok ordered my BMC CDA on saturday, but im not sure whether i needed the 9070 reducer.

    am i correct in saying that the turbo inlet is the same size as the 1.8?

    or has any current CDA owners needed to use the reducer? just asking because i would rather order it sooner rather than later. or go for a samco 90 dgree bend reducer.

    not sure if bmc cdas are universal, but the one i ordered is for the 2.0 turbo.

    hope someone can help.

    cheers


    edited. found out that is a 70mm outlet, so i should be fine. but i would still like to know if the pipe that goes from the airbox to the AFM is the same degree bend as the 2.0turbo.

    and does anyone know the inlet size i.e. the end that the air intake goes into? so i can get a decent air feed.

    cheers

    Cant remember off the top of my head regarding the reducer but BMC CDA's arent universal as such, theres two ... one for 1.6 and under engines, and one for engines larger than 1.6.

    Just been out to the shed and measured mine for you. The inlet and outlet are the same size, approx 85mm with the outlet having a reducer available to bring it down to 70mm in order to match the AFM hose size.

    Can't comment on the bend required as I haven't fitted the BMC with a standard inlet manifold as mine will be fitted with a Dbilas and they are much different. I'd buy a 45 degree 70mm Samco hose and cut it as required.

    thanks for the help guys.

    i emailed the company yesterday and this is the reply i got.

    HI,
    We have checked various listings and it appears the adaptor is not required on the 1.8 car. The filter should be with you in the next couple of days.
    Regards Rob


    so i think the people with the 85 outlet have got the cda85-150 were as i got the cda70-150. i think the inlet is still 85mm though.

    i was thinking that ken, but i have looked at the original pipe and it looks closer to 90 degrees than 45. but i suppose if i cut off a decent amount at each end ot should work fine.

    cheers guys
