    Default Remove front air intake long pipe

    Howdo. I have done a search and I know people have done this but not how.

    I want to replace the long air intake I have on my 3.2 with a shorter GSI one and I've been able to get it all loose but I can't for the life of me figure out how to get it out without removing the radiators or the top cross member, there just doesn't seem to be enough room because of those great enormous lugs.

    Is it possible?

    Cheers

    Cheers chaps - I managed to get the lugs out of the housing so the whole thing was loose but then there's no room forwards or backwards. Did you have to split it down into the bits before and after the resonators, get it out in two pieces like?
