Cheap 'cold air' induction kit.

Recommended Posts

As many of you know you can remove and 'plug' the Helmhotz resonator with plumbing parts (1.5" tank connector+cap) or 'orange caps' but search as I may I couldn't find a cheap way of getting a silicone hose from the factory air box to the throttle body.

Installed tonight and tested is a 45deg elbow reducing silicone hose. Sizes 90mm to 80mm ID.

Got this from eBay for £10 and got it in black to boot so it looks more factory.

It comes in long so use your original hose to cut it. It's not quiet square cuts and also cut 5mm or so big. Use the hose clips to mark your cut, tighten them then cut against them.

I don't have pictures of the cutting but it's pretty self explanatory, match the shape of the original!

Reuse your hose clamps and that's it! The silicone hose from fabspeed and the like is £70 or more now and that's just silly.

Good luck. 3631da487f5147d833e2b083e8f260a8.jpg
