    1.9 CDTi Airbox Mod with Courtenay Pipe Work

    Hi all,
    Just a quick note to all who are wanting to do the 1.9CDTi Airbox Mod but don't have the time or know-how to get all the pipe, hoses and clips to cut and fit...

    I bought (Oh My God!!! ) the Courtenay airflow and breather pipe as I didn't have the time nor patience to do the elbow work.
    Now this pipe is only for the 80mm AFM but not too worry, I did some work and using a 2 to 3 inch long piece of 70mm Silicon hose and a 2 inch piece of alloy pipe (with beaded end) I did as follows:-

    1. Fitted the new 1.9CDTi Airbox.
    2. Fitted the 70mm AFM to the airbox.
    3. Placed the alloy piece into the 70mm silicon hose piece (beaded end nearest the AFM.
    4. Pushed the alloy and 70mm silicon pipe assembly into the Courtenay hose.
    Fitted the Courtenay hose onto the turbo inlet and fitted the breather to this.
    5 Clamped the whole lot together with clips.

    End is the alloy pipe inside the 70mm fits nicely into the 80mm hose from the Courtenay hose - like your own reducer.
    Obviously if anyone does this you need to ensure that the alloy pipe and 70mm hose does not restrict the breather hose...
    But then this could be blocked off if you decide to just vent the breather to atmosphere.

    I'm also looking into fitting an oil catch tank to this.

    Just thought I'd share this with the masses.

    I'll try and get a pic as soon as...

    if its a normal power pipe, then you need 57mm pipe work, and i found the easiest way to connect the 80mm afm to the airbox was to..... force a 80mm alloy pipe into the 70mm airbox rubber and fit the afm further down the piping.

    The Easy way to fit the 80mm AFM into the 1.9cdti Airbox is to Trim the rubber bit off the airbox an push the AFM in side the top of airbox and Clamp it inside jobs a good one

    I have to ask...

    What is the benefit of changing the 70 AFM to the 80?
    Is it only if you are modding and re-mapping?
    Or will it only need fitting if you replace the LET turbo with the VXR one?
