    Anyone got a Dbilas air scoop? Help needed.

    Iv just got myself one of those Dbilas air scoops the 8.5 inch one.

    And im just wondering how people have attached it to the air box?
    Is a bit of silicone hose best or some ducting?

    If you have used silicone hoses can you please tell me what bits, like diameters and degree bends etc

    Thanks, Tom.

    use some neoprene coated air ducting, it is reinforced with a wire insert and is extremely flexible and durable for tight bends. 75mm is what you need and i recently got a metre length for £18 from Larkspeed
