    Are you a Z18xe owner?

    Hi

    I was wanderin if someone could take or get hold of a pic of a Z18xe without the engine cover on, i am only really interested in the air intake pipe that comes of the throttle body and goes to the MAF, but i need a shot of the whole pipe with the top half of the engine visible too, so i can get an idea of the size...

    it has to be a z18xe only, and prefferably in a astra or vectra

    IT IS ALL PART OF A MASTER PLAN THAT COULD WORK WELL !

    thanks to anyone that helps

    i am going to be saying good bye to the sh1teness of resonation...

    it is a Z16xep

    i dont care if the bores are wrong cos i have some adapters and metal tubing etc from an old induction kit,i just needed to make sure the pipe and an extra connection for another mystery pipe which it has..

    I AM THE MASTER OF BODGING... there is no reason for this too fail now !

    (unless i run out of hacksaw blades/glue/jubilee clips/tubing/tools)

    it wont be this side of xmas now though, unless 'cnkh' could measure the inside diameter of the pipe, and the length from the tb to the MAF for me to... if so i may purchase from vx rather than scrappy

    it wont be the only mod!

    to go:
    1. larger air scoop from regal is going on
    2. de-restriced the airbox
    3. K&n when i get more finance/can find one for about £35 (or i nick my mates when he aint lookin)
    4. and this adjustment

    then, i will see if i am going to get a veccy next year or not, i may cam and remap the engine if not !
