Previous owner put the cone filter on original hose, i will need to move it to where the water bottle is i think and get a heatshield. Really want a proper grill, i look like 1100cc from the front.  :(

You may get away with cutting the hose, finding a bit of tube big enough to fit & turning the filter so it faces up, be ok like that, especially if you get a heat shield, you are restricted to where you can put a filter if you have everything in the standard place, keep the cold air feed if you can.
Is it running a bigger turbo, what's the spec on the engine?

Nice looking motor  8)

Not a massive spec really, i've been trying to make a good engine with the intention of making it a bit quicker in the future.

Wossner (sp) forged pistons (low comp)
Uprated head gasket
Hi-Tensile head bolts (to 90Nm)
Cylinder head refurbished with ports matched to manifolds.
Standard T2 @ 12Psi
Stainless steel exhaust system (couldn't beleive how thin the original one was when it fell off)  :oops:

Everything else is standard, i have some original alloys with are going to be blasted and made good for next summer. Someone has fitted 30mm lowering springs on the front and left the rear in the air as you can see and fitted cheap and nasty tyres so handling isn't very good to be honest.

Theres a bit of bodywork that needs sorting, under the windscreen and theres a small bit on the corner of the passenger door but again i will sort that out in the summer next year, just focusing on putting some miles on her at the moment.  8)

Looks nice as said loose the 1.1 Grill....

I see the new car scent magic tree, that smell always reminds me of my old GTT as I bought that air freshener straight after I bought !!

It does smell quite nice. Something to try and disguise the constant smell of hot oil these cars have.  :oops:
