Relocationg Air Filters
« on: 07:37, Thu 09 July 2009 »
I was wondering wot is best to use for relocation the air filter from where it orginally sits to jus behind the lights at all, as i have a nice size space there and the air filter currently looks crampd wi the water tank above it.

You can buy ducting off ebay, just make sure it's the stronger stuff that will withstand a bit of heat, attach one end to the turbo & then fit the filter in the other.... or maybe find some silicone hoses & join them tegether to angle where you want..

or better still , use the OE spec filter with a panel filter ;) proven to work better than open air filters

I think James has the best idea, relocating the water header tank and fitting the air filter there.

I'm sure he has a picture somewhere.
