    Whats the best airbox for Z16XE

    I have a cold air feed induction kit atm, but am getting sick of the hassle with it always coming apart, so going to do a new system.

    Was thinking Veccy c intake pipe and 1.9tdci airbox?

    Any better options??

    the outlet on the airbox is pointing the wrong way

    Do you actually know what the 1.9 box looks like ??!!

    1.9 & 2.2 box "mod" is only for turbo applications where both the inlet and outlet of the airbox are at the front of the car

    the problem you have has a simple solution

    Ditch the shit induction kit - no good on 16v motor due to heatsoak

    fit the standard airbox and enlarged cold air feed - uprated panel filter - job done.

    sounds good. Havent looked at a tdci box, but come to think of it they were on turbo cars.

    My old airbox and pipes were hacksawed up when the induction kit was put in by the last owner, i just changed the filter and pipes to cold air feed, but it comes apart all the time and really messes up the engine bay.
