    New pictures ( airbox mod, engine bay and custom badge)

    Here we go

    Thanks to SRITaff for infomation about this, i decided to drill 18 holes in the side of my air box, ( closest to the wing so it dont suck warm air in)





    I have took the car or a spin, it does sound like its got an induction kit on, its quiet but theres the noise there =) its also increased the throttle response too. well happy with it.

    Put some hose covering on recently, looks good to me, anyone else tell me what else to cover up?



    And finally got round to fitting that custom ''Bluudy'' Badge on my ashtray.





    Comments welcome.

    Bit to much red in for me mate. Engine cover could do with being different from the pipe covers!
    THE STATEMENTS MADE ABOVE ARE MERELY MY OPINION AND SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED AS STATEMENTS OF FACT UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED

    Blacks always an option, or white could look nice. Something similar to Taff's
    Astra 1.8 16v Sport
