    Talking de restricted airbox

    yesterday i decided to take my k&n induction kit off and put the airbox on with a pipercross panel filter but i had no veccy c pipe, so i used the cold air feed from the cone filter and it just slots in comfortably in the air box all i needed to do was put abit of silicone round it to completely seal the box and then shorten the pipe to the grill and the results are brilliant.
    i never realised the difference from the airbox mod to the open cone filter, i had alot of problems with the cone especially sitting in traffic.

    if anyone is interested i have a 2month old k&n filter for sale with the brackets minus the cold air feed.

    yeah the problem with the open/cone filter esp in traffic pulls in lots of hot air from the engine
