mk6 Pipercross help!

Hi guys. I ordered a Pipercross induction kit (PK252 for those in the know) and it arrived this morning.

I was expecting it to be a direct replacement for the airbox which sits on top of my engine (mk6 1.4 Zetec) but it turns out it just sits where the cold air feed usually sits!

Can anyone tell me how to fit the PiperX directly onto the engine rather than going through the standard box?

Cheers guys!

(p.s... any news on ukfn??)

Re: mk6 Pipercross help!

Right well i hope this helps:
Refer to the picture mate. This is what the engine looks like without the airbox. I believe you will need a custom pipe in order to fit a Pipercross cone straight to engine by-passing the airbox. A k&n cone can be bought that will be fitted without the airbox, but the pipercross, as far as i'm aware may not. Somebody pls tell me different if the p/crss can be fitted as a kit without the need for custom pipework. The blue writing and blue circle is where the old cold air feed would have feed into the airbox, but as the box has been removed, a cone filter would have to be fitted where the red text and circle is.
I hope this helps, but it may not be 100% correct as i'm not a proper mechanic...I'm just a Nic..lol

Re: mk6 Pipercross help!

Yeah I understand what you're saying mate. I can't see any photo though?? I fitted the piperx yesterday and I'm totally disappointed... I can't hear any difference at all!!

There's three hoses... the cold air feed (on the right as u look at it), on the left as you look at it there is the hose which feeds from the filter into the engine, and just to the right of that is a much smaller hose... what's that one for?? I figured that if I cut down the outlet on the left then I could mount the piperX on the end of that... but what do i do with the smaller one??

Would really appreciate your help! Thanks!!
