    Here´s my induction kit. Easy DIY job. It´s not pretty but it works. BMC cone filter connected to 3 inch silicone pipe. The heat shield is made from 3 mm plastic and the ugly yellowish thing on the engine side is reflective aluminum faced material sticked to the plastic. I also put 3 inch pipe behind the bumper that feeds cold air inside the heat shield. I found the plan attached to this post from US Bimmer forum. I made first version out of cardboard to make sure it fits. The shield is easy to make prettier if you have time. Paint it black and add weatherstrip on top to seal it to the bonnet. It could almost look factory made. I made mine in a hurry. As always.

    i got a 9 degree bend, drilled a hole in it and used a copper compression fitting to connect the ICV.

    i did cut the copper pipe right down and connected to ICV with some vacuum hose.

    or rather than spend £15 ish on the 90 degree bend i could of spend £80 and got one with the ICV connection on.

    Nice bit of plumbing ive ordered a 80mm bend to make it easier to fit over the maf.
    As im a plumber ive Got the rest of the bits in my van, if any body wonderd it's a 22mm tank connector you can get push fit to make it easier.
    I'm gona use 15mm as it will fit inside the old Pcv vent pipe with bit of tape round it, as it the same size as the
    Push on connector on the standard hose.

    thanks, just bought the ebay kit and if it did't fit then i will return it,
    i thought it is easier to have it all professionally or at least done by machine than trying to do plumbing

    don't get me wrong the diy is more fun but maybe not as good as the machined one and may workout more expensive
