    Default Airbox Mod

    I'm going to order a new panel filter from work to do this mod. I've had a look at the How2 which refers to the 1.9 CDTi, but i'm guessing it's pretty much the same for the 2.2 DTi?

    I also noticed the torx screw under the hose, i know you need to open the jubilee clip to get at it but can you accidently pull the hose out? I'm keen to do this but scared incase i mess it up!!!!!

    It's a piece of cake mate - although my 2.2 was a Vectra B - so it'll either be the same airbox as that, in which case it's really easy, or it'll be like hte current airbox's and the How2 guide will be correct...

    it's got to be done fella it's just as the 1.9 and you should get good results as i got my 2.2DTi up from 123BHP to 139 BHP just by doing the air box mod and adding a k&n filter !!!!!!

    Back in a V6 !!!!!!!!!!!! And lovin it !!!

    i know on the old vectra v6 the air box is quite restricted,so guessing on different engines will make more of a difference,only my guess though
