    Hello , if your car is not producing a lot of smoke , you can get an oil sniffer or extend the hose breather

    You can even just extend the hose and make it come down the the 2nd SAMCO silicon hose :
    (here with the 2.2 box , but same as CDTI air box , on my previous installation , now i'll be running the Dbilas air box , but with the same hose .

    has anyone put there pipe back into the airbox if so did you put it in the top section above the filter or in the bottom section below the filter?

    I placed a breather pipe down to the right hand side of the bay and added a filter, cost £15 all in I think. The filter sits down near the intercooler and the passenger compartment never smells

    Another option is to drill a hole in the airbox and run a pipe into the bottom half and seal it up.

    thanks rob,, im thinking of putting a filter on the end on the pipe and fitting it in the airbox above the filter.. to ensure that any smell of oil ect goes through the same way as it does originally ..but not sure if i can get any problems doing it this way..

    I've used this set up in my 2.2 box for over a year or so and seems to work well.
