    Default GSi/VXR intake pipe

    I have searched and can't find any pictures showing these 2 pipes. Is there any difference between the 2??

    I have the same pipe on my Vec as I have fitted to my Zaff which came from Courtenay's which is know as "The vectra C in take pipe mod". Are these the same??

    I just don't want to go and buy something I already have!!

    The vectra C in take pipe mod, isn't that just fitting the diesel intake pipe?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    What about ripping out all the pipe work & fitting some 80mm cold air feed to your box mate?

    Just a distant memory from my astrasport.co.uk days. I seem to remember they charged an extortionate amount for a vx part.

    They were to bad from courtenays, they were about £25 but "Rip off Regal" down south were £50!! I got mine from the stealer 7 years ago now for £12, just checked.
