    beeson1987 's large intake mod

    Right, thought id put a post up here as i think its a realy good bit of kit.
    Bought it of beeson1987 today, and fitted it in about 5/10 mins. Fits realy well and is pretty self explainitory. Its made of metal, and sprayed black.

    Compared to the old intake its HUGE, waaaay bigger than the veccy c inlet and looks a bit bigger than the dbilas, and is shaped well. Plus he has changed the ducting to something a bit more 'subtle' and actually fits in quite well with the rest of the engine.

    For £45 i think your getting a bit of a bargain, considering the smaller dbilas that retails at like £110 or something silly.


    After fitting it does make a difference. Crisper induction note, and pulls better IMHO. Not sure as to power gains or anything, but am going to rolling road soon so should be able to let you know.



    I'll get some nice pics up tomorow

    Might be a silly question, but does this mod work on the 1.9 cdti airbox conversion?
