    Hi Jim,
    the only pics of the 2.2 airbox mod in a Zaf I've seen in here were in posts by Matts a long while ago, try a search through his old threads.

    Was thinking about doing this mod but have a couple of concerns, maybe un-necessarily so.

    1 Not too keen on moving the AFM closer to the hottest part of the engine.

    2 Will the shortened induction tract **** things up power/torque wise due to the inlet tract being a tuned length ?
