2nd CAI question

I have just acquired a BA XR8 air intake snorkel for a 2nd CAI on my turbo. I saw a thread a while back explaining how to connect it to the standard airbox. Does anyone know how i can do this as i cannot find the thread anymore? Also has anyone fitted a turbo timer to there turbo, I have a Greddy unit and am wondering if ford will mind if I have it installed.

Cheers.

What I did with mine was cut the snorkel right behind the lip , so I had a flat square surface to work with. With the bit you cut off use it as a template to cut out the airbox with. I used a dremel to cut the box out. This worked out the best giving more airflow than making a round adapter. The snorkel should then fit in the hole between the two lips on the snorkel.

I will try and get some pics for you if this doesnt help much.
