    I've never heard of a Vectra 2.2 airbox being fitted on an Astra, iirc the intake hoses and pipes are in a different place anyway. Did you get confused with a Astra 2.2 airbox?

    dunno if the whole box will fit, possibly the top half will fit the astra bottom half though?

    Can anyone tell me where can i get the pipes that fit the standard airbox to cross over / the 2.2 airbox straight to the turbo? want blue silicon ones but who sells them coz courtney dont sell them other then in a pack with the intercooler pipe also..

    apparently the vectra 2.2 will fit its ment to be pretty much same as the astra 2.2 one..

    Vectra 2.2 doesn't fit as the mountings are wrong.

    Silicon pipes would be:

    1 x 90 degree 76 - 70 mm
    1 x 45 degree 70mm

    The vectra b 2.2 airbox is half the size of the astra one,and wont mount correctly to the standard mountings....however if new brackets were made up i'm sure you cud make it fit...

    Yes thank you that would be the silicon pipes im after, dunno about the mm tho i had thought it was 63mm - 70mm 90 degree..
    Dunno where to buy them i had seen a link some where but didnt save it.?

    Owell if the 2.2 vectra box dont fit i hope the so called 2.2 converstion kit ive bought from ebay isnt that.
