Any sort of ducting hose that will direct air will do it mate. The bigger the better :thumbs:

Might as well, it should be cheaper. try and get the aluminium ducting, as this obviously wont melt and will help dissipate any engine heat quite quickly from the hose

I don't know much about the sound, but it should improve performance. The colder the feed, the better the mix, and the better performance.

You can feed it from anywhere from the front, so as to force air along it when driving. Probably best from the lower grille, as you have a larger aperture to catch the air in. Oh and yeah away from the engine as best as possible to avoid additional hea ton the hose

Feeds??

My C is goin in2 Vx for a few little jobs. Gonna order the SRi cross hatch lower while i am there. What i was think of was while the bumber is off, removing the lower fogs & use the holes to run cold air feeds to the filter. Go for the bad boy look.

What u think guys??

What were you thinking C4, adding another hose entirely, or adding to the top plastiic duct
