    Default Air intake..

    Just replaced my standard air intake with some 68mm gutter pipe. This is a double air intake in the bottom front vanance, did this with a 't' piece of guttering. and fed to air box with 68mm flexi pipe. the car does like this mod as obviously is getting more air flow and been draw from a lower and cooler area closer the the ground, oh and i will not be accelerating in big puddles............. remember the rs cosworth with their puddle sucking air scoops...... lol

    I was just about to mention the puddles... I thought about drilling out my Irmy grill as the air inlet is behind a blanking plate... would be better with the ram air effect, however even at near the bonnet, there is a risk of water ingress So not sure... although the K&N should block it and there are drainage holes in the filter box...

    probably still 12" off the road i'd sayand as long as not throttling should be ok, and as 2 68mm holes sucking air at idle hardly any vacumn their.
