    indeed, no body really notices much of a difference from doing it but it helps keep the air in temp cooler looks a hell of alot better, i have 1.9 airbox as it looks better than 2.2 and u dont have to lengthen AFM cables :-D

    If you mean use your existing pipes without purchasing more then no. IIRC there is a pipe coming off the top of the Rocker cover to the crossover, you will need to get a pipe to replace that and somehow get that plumbed into your new setup? As i had a look at doing this the other day(with existing pipes) and thats the bit that stopped me. Plus the turbo inlet is 60mm and the pipe i'd assume you want to connect to it is 70mm(but prolly get around this by leaving the current pipe on that connects turbo inlet to crossover)

    Or just get the proper 1.9 or 2.2 setup.
    For free hugs PM me.

    for the breather pipe coming off the rocker cover you can just buy a pipercross oil filter thats what i did.... but yes theres no way of doing it without buying anything extra unfortunatly

    you need a pipercross C9025 or similar they are about £20 and if i was you i would buy a 1 metre 19mm rubber hose because you dont wanna be mounting it straight off where it exits as you will get an oil smell inside the car, i moved mine next to the other crank breather pipe :-)
