    Just Having A Little Think . . .

    Here's my engine bay, just a normal coupe turbo engine. Ive done all the air box mods and installed the larger air scoop and fitted a green filter.




    Now i want to install something like this to protect my Air Box from any heat. Will it be worth buying any of these products and will i get a better result in the air being cooler in the box?

    Not worth it imo, better off putting vents in the bonnet and lowering overall temps in there

    well ive got to get my bonnet re-sprayed due to stone chips, i like the idea of having some louvres pressed in but they are quite a drive away.

    You can send them the bonnet, or they can provide a new one with the louvres already in

    See if someone closer could do you something and maybe bring it to the xmas party or something ??

    yeah suppose it does, not enougth to cause running probs i would have thought, but enough to corrode things and make a mess.

    im now looking at sleeves to put on the boost pipe, my 1st idea is def not worth it after thinking about it, the air will get hot going round the turbo????

    so the only cool air is from the intercooler to the inlet????

    not in mine no - its so warm that it tends to evaporate quickly - even at work when its cold none seems to get in - i get more road spray through the front grille than water in the vents
