    Default Air filter intake upgrade

    Pooped into the dealer's today to pick up my new air intake pipe. 7.45 with our 10% discount
    I just need to get a panel filter and I'll do the whole mod in one.
    Here's the mod.
    http://forum.vectra-c.com/showthread.php?t=54505

    I asked how much a new 17" alloy was for a spare. He said cheapest 17" alloy is 120 quid less 10% discount plus the VAT.
    I said I'll leave it and find a used one.
    This is the car i'm not modding

    I looked at my airscoop today and it is already quite short as it only goes across the radiator about a third or is this right and the one you got is shorter again

    I'm not sure on your's Andy. But mine is the longer one as pictured in the link. I have bought the real short one now. This new one doesn't sit above the radiator at all. Were as the longer on sit's right on top.

    Vehicle : Insignia CDTi SRi NAV 160

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : A20DTH

    Year : 2009

    Mileage : 88000

    Default

    It appears that the longer air pickup is only on the 1.8. all the others have the shorter one. My 1.9CDTi does and I have seen a few such as the 3.2 with the shorter one.

    My 2003 2.2 had the longer one fitted as standard and I've replaced that with the shorter one.
