    Result, sort of

    Did the air box mod tonight, and for the love of god!!! getting that original pipe out was a complete pain in the arse, thought I was going to break something, but got it out in the end, fitted the veccy one in and then the connecting pipe, and Hell on earth started again, getting the bottom of the air box back in, 30 minuets later, and the miss's had to come give a hand, with-in 5 mins it was done!! then connecting those connecting pipe's with my butchers hands..... miss's to the rescue!!

    New K'n'N filter attached and fitted, lid back on and all looks well, but no clips/screws to hold the new breather pipe in place, and every where is shut! will it be ok for the time being / weekend, and no cable tie's either??? real half a job!!

    She does pull so much better and when putting the boot in it really kicks you back, much fun!!

    great mod for a few £££££

    cheers guys...

    Give it a few good runs to the redline and the ECU will get a good set of new airflow readings to make it that bit better

    Would dis-connecting the battery for the night help?

    Neither have I to be honest, I thought diconnecting the battery for a few hours would re-set it???? there is a noticable difference as soon as you hit the pedel.....
