Got My Filter

Pipercross filter turned up yesterday only took a couple of days too come. Gets it out of the box and the tight fisted ****s aint even included a cold air feed. 71.99 and no cold air feed. I'm thinking they want me too but one of their viper looking feeds at 26.99. Think again.

Re: Got My Filter

My induction kit doesn't have a cold air supply either :S

Need to change that!!

Brickfoot: How did you mount that?? Or is it that stiff (no puns) that it just sits where you place it?

Re: Got My Filter

it's held in with cable ties, you need to remove the plastic piping that connects to the old airbox (plastic part next to passenger headlight) to get it in, and direct it to the little bumper vent next to the towing eye.

Re: Got My Filter

After spending 72 notes I think they mite not want to spend another 30 odd quid on materials to get it down there.

Use the route Brickfoot is using then get another feed to come up here

Re: Got My Filter

Liam, The route suggested may not be as good, since the feed pictured is away from the engine, the feed won't heat up from the engine. It routes cold air around the engine from a colder scource in the engine bay (in the same way a Gsr kit would) and is more effective.

I hope that helps
