    Just fitted a carbon airbox

    so is was wondering around halfords today and decided to get a carbon airbox reduced from 79.99 to 49.99 , got to say doesnt really make it quicker but does feel more responsive and i hooked the cold air feed to my veccy c pipe what do think

    Sorry about the pic was dark + raining

    i got one the other week for 40 quid with me discount . i like it, much better than the k&n one i had on with it taking in colder air. it looks pretty cool in the bay too and it should be spot on with my new inlet manifold. looks like yours went on better than mine tho, bit tight getting it to fit so i chopped the black inlet pipe off and gafer taped it on haha. itl do until the manifold is sorted

    That looks awsome, does it make any different noise?

    haha spot on

    patton77 it sounds a little deeper but being diesel it wont sound as good a petrol with one, but sounds a lot better than just a cone filter which was too noisy
