    Veccy c pipe fitted(at last)

    what an absolute ba-tard this is to fit,and tbh still aint right,but tis on. took me longer to take the normal zlet one,than 2 fit the enlarged intake.
    and def feels much better,feels smoother.
    but will tell wen it goes on the RR monday.
    but if i attempt to do this again someone smack me ffs

    looks if stuck out ,but is angle of cam

    all for £13 from vaux

    I gave up in the end and sold it. I'm going to try again soon. Going to buy the parts and also do the airbox at the same time. Hoping that somebody who lives near Worksop, Notts will help me out :-)

    getting the original one out is a complete ba-tard,but i found an easy way, i pushed down through a hole located above it with a ratchet,with another spanner,pushed it under the lug and out it popped.

    but before i tried that i couldnt get it out either,and trying to get the pipe from intake to air filter box on was a right fiddley job

    Try fitting the diablas intake, that took me ages Surprising just how much bigger that intake is really isn't it.

    Andy Pandy, are your initial impressions with just the the c pipe and adaptor fitted or have you also de-restricred the airbox or fitted a K&N? Just curious as I am thinking of doing this mod to my Zafira.
