    1.9 all the way....

    Pro's
    It keeps the AFM further away from the turbo (less failures)
    You can plumb in the rocker breather because of the extra length pipes
    It can be converted to 80mm for the VXR AFM

    Cons
    None that I know of

    You can plumb the rocker cover pipe in on a 2.2, just has to be a little bit longer, also the 2.2 mod can be changed to 80 mm. Although the 1.9 one does move the AFM away from the turbo, im not convinced that it is that much of a problem, had mine as a 2.2 for over a year and only been through one of them, that was due to over oiling my panel filter too.

    Not a great deal of difference really, either is better than the std zlet one with crossover pipe arrangement though imo.

    I have the 2.2 mod fitted for over a year and its been fine too.

    I am changing to the 1.9 as I think it looks better so I will have my 2.2 set up (Inc samco's) for sale soon.

    Didn't mike warner do it for a while, i may well be mistaken on this. Wouldn'y be hard to do, just need the slightly larger ends.

    Yeah I just thought because it has an oval inlet it may be hard to do... Where as the 1.9 box seems a lot easier.... Just my thoughts anyway
