    Todays Mod and Road Trip!!!

    Today I thought I'd make the most of the weather and fit my new air inlet pipe as bought from Beeson. I also de-restricted the air box as well with my brother. I used the how to from this website when doing it followed the instructions and completed the job in about an hour. Here are some pictures of the work.

    The inlet pipe in position

    Overall I was very happy with how it turned out and the car feels far more responsive and a deeper engine note as well. To test how the car felt to drive I took it up to Black Mountains. Absolutely adore these roads, they've featured on numerous Top Gear episodes. Any way I've included some pictures just to show people what their missing by not being located as close to the wonderful mountains.

































    Thoroughly enjoyed my day. Made use of the great weather and hope people have enjoyed looking at the pictures.

    All comments welcome!!
