    Lightbulb modified standard airbox? erm possible 56k warning (7 pictures 800x600)

    Hey it's the middle of the night and with bits of car parts near my reach i've been thinking with the 2.2 and 1.9cdti airbox, has anyone tried using the standard airbox and doing this:





    and the clips still clip on and make it air tight too (i've tested it)






    Just wondered why no one has tried this way? i know there's a reason XD as whenever i come up with an idea, where no one else has done it, its nearly always wrong for some reason.

    just want to know if its air tight and essentially is the 1.9 cdti box set up, why hasn't anyone used it... the clips are slightly harder to clip on and off thats the only problem i see with it

    When the airbox is fitted I don't think there will be enough room to fit any pipework because of the slam panel mate

    hahaha, tried it myself before i bought the 1.9 airbox, it DOESN'T fit, the bonnet won't close, the box is that shape so that it does fit, with the lid the other way round, it hits the bonnet!
