    Angry Vectra C pics please!!!

    Right, I have fitted my K&N filter panel, and de-restricted my airbox (really happy with the results so far), however, I attempted to fit my Vectra C pipe too and I just can't get it to all line up :s I have followed the how-to guide, but to no avail. NOTE: I do have the adapter too.

    Some pictures of your pipes may just be what I need, and a few tips. I know a lot of you have this mod too. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks guys.

    Thanks for the quick response. I can't connect the pipe (with the adaptor on) to the airbox, because it seems to be at the wrong angle.

    It will never sit 100% straight, it is supposed to go on a Vectra...

    I zip-tied the flexi tube to the airbox with it all out of the car, I then put the airbox in the car. Only then did I put the intake pipe on to the flexi tube and zip-tied this tightly.

    I used the original bolts to hold the intake pipe against the bonnet shut panel...so far it has not moved, whereas before when I fitted it without the zip-ties, it kept coming apart.

    I wanted to make sure I had the flexi-pipe sitting over the little security lug thing which I think I managed! Never took piccies though!
