Cold Air Induction (read)

i know all this has been discused before, and you'll all huffing and puffing now thinking what a dickhead.

BUT, i cant seem to find anything that discusses getting around the ABS unit in the EF series, the ABS unit is 100% below the airbox, no drilling can be done, otherwise smack, drill into it.

I need some hints or tips on people who have done it to there EF.

this is a proper cold air setup, not a new bigger snorkel, there useless IMO.

any help is very much appreciated, i even considered ripping out the ABS, and moving it down another inch or 2, but thats too much hassle

go to here. www.xrclub.itcs.net.au

Below the club logo, click on "tech pages".
Find: "intake" and click on: "cold air".

ive read that, thats an EL, the ABS unit is in a different spot :(

its closer to the front than it is in the EF, see how the pipe goes straight up into the airbox, well the ABS unit is right where the tube goes up in the EF :(

On an EL, you could possibly re route the air intake to the other side of the car, or theres no reason why the cold air intake need to be on the bottom, you could always drill an large hole in the Front side of the airbox and route a hose in that way?

yeah i thought about doing it thru the front, but then there is a row of fuses, or connectors mounted in front of the box, you can relocate that another few inches up to allow for the 4" pipe to come in, but then you have to drill, grind thru a mega thick plate.

i'll see what my gf's old man (mechanic) can do for me next time im there.

Another idea. Drill the hole of the back side where it follows the wheel arch, and route hose through that away

have a 2x 2" piping going in that way currently, and the problem is 4" pipe wont clear the tyre when turning, the car is dumped on its arse, so turning will push the pipe back n forth, not a nice idea when turning quickly.

im ripping out the current piping i have, for a better setup, proving very difficult

back to the drawing board
