Air Feeds


Recommended Posts


search for cold air feed on eBay, theres plenty of different piping.. measure the diameter of the inlet in your airbox (there is a size that fits snug, just cant remember it off the top of my head). youll need about 1.3m worth to route it down to the lower grill. gaz should have some pics of his, or search for older posts and it should come up. hope that helps!

I'm assuming you're using a panel filter inside the standard air box? One way to get more cold air to it would be to replace the standard plastic air induction tube. They standard ones are quite restrictive and draw air from a bit of a silly place.

Here's a photo of my old set-up when I was running a pod filter in the engine bay (short ram intake). Your engine will be different to mine, but the concept is the same. I just used a hole where the standard intake resonator used to be located so that the air gushed up there and through the pipe when I drove along. I've since moved onto a cold air induction set-up, but this should give you some idea of what I meant by replacing the induction tube that leads to the filter/air box (the third pic was taken from underneath the car, looking upwards. This is where the air was feed from the ground and into the tube leading to the filter) -

I do have a cone filter but am only using the standard air feed and would like to change it to a better flowing one.

That helps but on my E12 im not sure where to rout it.

Might sound kind of a silly question but will never know unless asked...

What does this do? Is it better for performance or something?

It's supposed to feed cold air into the filter when you get going so that there is a higher density of oxygen per cc of air. The gains are miniscule but its something cheap that doesn't hurt. The only thing that it can do is help and seeign as it costs a tenner many people don't see why not. :)

Hope that answers your Q. :D
