    ind kit catching

    decided 2 buy an ind kit when i first bought my car, but couldn't find a pipcross one 2 fit it, but the shop i went 2 had 1 for the same engine but in the corsa, so i bought it.

    ever since its knocked the inner wheelarch, i've stopped it 4 now by padding under it.

    Ne ideas on how to solve it permanently, i.e extending the hose so the filter sits different etc

    is your induction kit a cone filter or a enclosed induction kit,
    with a cone filter you could heat shield it and run a cold air feed to the cone filter from behind the front grill

    its a pipecross cone filter
    didn't think of a heat shield as it sits right in the corner of the wing, right away from the block

    Are you using the original plastic silencer pipe from the throttlebody?

    If you are you need to make a bracket to hold it up
