I got creative...
Just thought I would get on here and tell you all about my morning. First of all, i finally had my shocks rebuilt to suit my 30mm lowered springs, I have been meaning to do it since July but finally got the cash and motivation. So she'll be sitting nice by monday I reckon.
On the way home from the shock place I decided to drop into the local wreckers. There I picked up a complete EF EECV airbox, with lid, piping, and induction scoop thing. 20 bucks. I also scored a set of EF Door handles for 15 each (they need painting, all are different colours). Actually I only bought two, I will get the rear ones next fortnight.
The airbox struck my imagination as soon as i seen it. Those of you who have the EF inlet will know the air is sucked in through the bottom of the box, up thru the top. The EA sucks it through the top into the bottom. I noticed when looking at the EF airbox the intake pipe might just be the right size to fit the pipe running to my throttle body. So I took it home, bolted the box in, and hey presto, the intake worked. SO now I have a bigger airbox...but, now that the intake of the box is up the top facing the engine (my intake is now where the EF drew air from into the throttle body) so I ran that black flexi hose right back up the engine bay, tucking it just behind the windscreen washer bottle with the outlet sucking air in from the bonnet edge. Its made a HUGE DIFFERENCE, i get some fantastic induction noise, cant tell by seat of the pants if I got more power, but hey, im happy
Next thing I am doing is cutting a hole in the firewall right underneath the passenger side just below the windscreen. If you look at that plastic cowl, it has lots of grills feeding air in (and out) of that part of the car.......so im running my pipe into that. I will post pictures of it all when Its all done......
