improving the intake

Post by $küll on Wed Mar 02, 2011 12:36 am

One thing that is really bad in the compi, is the fresh air intake. I have improved it with some work and a couple of €.

First i made a flap behind the grille, so more air is directed to the location of the airbox.





next, the stock intake duct... i unscrewed it, and pushed it as far to the right as i could, and tied it to the AC radiator with 2 cable ties. i increased the hole for more than 2 cm.



and finished by using a normal funnel (diameter 20cm), to lead the fresh air in the stock tube on the filter housing, that was just turned 180 degrees (stock facing towards the firewall, now facing the headlight).



then i cut it so the headlight fits inside





and when finished i painted it in matt black.
