Re: Fitting A Focus Induction Kit (8v 1.2 Punto).

just fitted my focus induction kit today, i found that you don't need copper piping, all i done was made a 1inch cut on the provided blue pipe, stretched it over the oil cooler pipe and used the small clip provided to firmly hold it in place. It works perfectly because i wasn't able to use piping so i found that this technique works. however how do you use the bracket to secure it to the battery tray holder as i cannot find any way of connecting the holder to the induction piping! :S

Re: Fitting A Focus Induction Kit (8v 1.2 Punto).

Hi guys, just wanted to know if this is the right kit, as it says its designed for the mk2 1.2 8 valve punto, but i was after the one that that was originally designed for the focus as most people have gone for, be good if someone could link me to the right one, cheers

The car I fitted mine to is an 04 8v 1.2 Punto (Mk2B)

They have made quite a big difference to the sound of my car, and also increased it's economy (although my air filter was blocked I suspect).

Do not try buying these for any other engine other than a 1.2 8 valve (Mk2, and Mk2b both fit).

I'll write a little guide as many members struggle fitted these.

1) Before you start make sure you have every peice of eqipment that come with these kits.

This includes:

Steel tubing.
Blue elbow joint.
Blue circle joint.
Air induction cone (normally blue or red).
A length of thin hose.
1 small hose clip.
Various large hose clips.
2 mounting brackets.

The kit does not include

2 more small hose clips.
A small copper connection. (Can be bought from Homebase, B&Q, etc etc)

2) Once you've got everything you need start by unclipping the small spring which is holding the air filter box on.

Please note - remove the whole black box, do not start unscrewing the top screws. The standard air filter is the whole black box.

After that unscrew the 2 screws now holding the box on.

Then it should just lift up.

3) Join the air filter together trying to follow this image.

Attachment 49338

Please note the steel tubing should go down towards the engine, not any other way.

Than attach it all together using the large clips.

4) After the air induction kit is built up attach the blue elbow pipe to where the original air filter box was removed, making sure the black seal goes over the blue elbow pipe.

5) Secure that connection with one of the large clips, making sure its secure.

6) Next you'l need some copper piping connectors (not included).

The copper pipe bridges the gap between the blue air induction kit pipe and the whole the orginal air box left.

This should then be secure with 2 smaller clips (one on either side of the connector).

7) Next, attach the other end of the blue wire to the steel induction tubing. Then secure this with a small clip.

8) Now all you need to do is secure it (which is easier said than done as these kits are not specifically designed for a Punto).

Some people connect the brackets that came with the kit to the manifold bolts (under the heat protection metal). Other people secure it to the battery holder.

I secured it to the battery holder, so just go ahead and unscrew the battery holder bolt and slip one of the brackers through there.

Next attach the other end of the bracket to the steel unduction tubing (I used another large clip).

9) Basically this is just touch and go where you can find to attach it, but try and secure it as much as possible and also try to make sure the small blue hose does not touch any metal part of the engine.

10) You're more a less done. Just seel the hole on the back of the elbow bracket up with a small amount of sillicone. Tighten all your clips.

Then just go ahead and fire the engine up.

Hopefully
you'll notice a difference in sound, mpg economy, and power. (But probably not to a great extent).

Please post your results, and comments.

Cheers.
MY 8V HAS GOT k&n AIR KIT ON IT IS VERY GOOD KIT MY HP IS GONE UP A BIT WHICH IS GOOD THING

No, it'll fail an MOT because it's not allowed to vent to atmosphere.

This is the kit I bought, You still need to buy the copper tubing and extra small hose clamps.

Hose Clips - http://www.diy.com/nav/fix/plumbing-...skuId=11988777
And the copper piping is 15mm and about 1.5 inch long.

Re: Fitting A Focus Induction Kit (8v 1.2 Punto).

Hi guys

I've fitted one of these induction kits to my fiat punto mia 1.2 8v but I can't get the blue elbow joint to sit tight on the throttle body so that it won't jump off at the slightest bump whilst I'm driving, I've followed the guide and also applied as much pressure to the jubilee clip at the join between the elbow and the throttle body, with the black seal from the original air box sitting correctly.

Can anyone give me a pointer in the right direction if they've had this problem before?

Cheers.
