    I finally did it!

    Bloody veccy c air intake

    I now have no skin left on my hands, just wanted to check and make sure I did it all right and stuff! It was dark when I took the pictures so sorry if the flash hasn't worked very well. My mates all ripped me and said that since it's on top of the radiator all I'll get is hot air now, I don't understand though because the veccy c pipe sits at pretty much the same spot as the old air intake pipe? Bear in mind, 2 of them drive MG/rovers and the other one has a ford...








    Also, did anyone elses airbox seem a bit higher up after they did this mod?

    Haha, I will!

    Yeah, I've still got to get hold of a small drill and some self tappers, it's held in place by a tie wrap atm

    Gonna get another jubilee clip for where the pipe fits onto the airbox too, just to be sure it's as tight as possible on there.

    Yeh mate good effort. I didn't have much of my old pipe left after my efforts. Had to take it out in pieces as it wouldn't budge. self tappers help keep it in position so get that done soon as.
