    All in all seems to make a diff, car picks up better and makes a nice induction noise.

    Bumper is still scratched :p

    Can I have the hose from my tumble dryer back please :mad: ;) Isn't there a risk of it taking up water having it so low though :confused:

    I think that would look 100% better if it was a black pipe!

    Hehe, no ;)

    did a test in the rain today and the intake was bone dry so it seems to be alright, the back or the scoop is open so rain can escape without trapping water ;)

    Must admit this was my main concern but its not staying for long just a temp mod to get me over this hot weather!

    This is mainly to get the shape. Tempted to now take the design and get it made up properly (think samco hoses) so we can re-sell it :)
