Re: My beautiful Croma.

I found an induction kit that fits the croma shocking!! But what happens to the MAF sensor???? Doesn't look like It would be connected cos the old air box would be stripped out, also think it would need a re-map after installing it.

What you reckon do I do what no croma has had done before!?!?

Re: My beautiful Croma.

I've modified my air box and it sounds awesome under load. Didn't cost me a penny.
I wouldn't go removing the Maf 'cos your fuelling will be all over the place!

Re: My beautiful Croma.

I have the 2.4 5 cylinder diesel and it sounds good for a diesel.
I drilled the airbox, which increases air flow while keeping everything else standard.
I am considering a custom made, stainless exhaust with quad tail pipes. I am going to get the mot (September) out of the way first and then start saving some pennies

Re: My beautiful Croma.

Sounds good funny you say about the exhaust cos I spoke to someone to today about getting one 140 to remove the back box and put a new one on with two tips. He will do four for 200. Have you got a pic of your air box?

Re: My beautiful Croma.

Looks great ...and you should make some photos of your airbox when you have time and/or opportunity

Smile Re: My beautiful Croma.

I managed to find some heat proof Blue so I've done the engine and battery covers for now. Gotta pick out the Multijet writing and finish the pipework off. Can't decide whether or not to do the airbox, but if I do I'll take a pic while it's out Roberto.

Re: My beautiful Croma.

That looks great Hal, really nice, I presume u want to clean the "Multijet" to its black colour again, that would look good, or you can make it with some red if you have . Ok, if you do the box I would like the picture, thank you .

Re: My beautiful Croma.

I reckon Dave will have to hand over the "most pimped Croma" trophy now.

I'm happy just to have brakes and a driveshaft that work (for now at least anyway). I might grind a pebble-infested sponge over it in a week or ten. That's it as far as my pimping goes.

Re: My beautiful Croma.

Another MOT out the way. Straight thru with no advisories

Four wheel tracking next and a new battery. Any recommendations on the battery? Nothing wrong with mine but it's the original and the ole girl deserves a treat

Re: My beautiful Croma.

Bosch or Varta. They're both identical, made by the same company. There's a thread on here somewhere full of my research when I got mine - it's not officially the right size but it's fine. The only other option is a Fiat-only special. I didn't bother finding out how much, but you know what the answer will be.
