    I had to cut my cold air feed and shape it a bit to meet the side of the grill because i was suspecting a bit of heat soak in summer heat

    I actually shaped it with a hoover nozzle attachment like this one

    Just taken it for a quick drive and the noise is good

    If anything i'd like it to be a bit louder but i guess theres no way of doing that?

    think im gunna get the cold air feed sorted at the weekend as i cant help but there is a bit more to be had with nice cold air getting to it

    What didnt you likle about it?

    It should take any water in as it uses the origional air feed with an extended pipe
    its just the pipe needs trimming a bit

    man I've had mine on for over a year and haven't had any problems with puddles or rain and I live in a very rainy place

    IMO the air feed is completely out of the way from a puddle

    The original air feed had no chance of fitting the CDA inlet , the airbox inlet went to far forward plus when I cut the original air feed a bit the whole setup was rubbing off the coolant bottle

    In the BMC kit I got, there was a large air feed the lenght of my arm which I only used a small bit of. I stretched and shaped one end to get as much of the air from the grill as I could but its still only covering about 4 fifths of the inlet (still to be addressed) but it works a hell of a lot better than without an air feed

    No pics but I have an old video you can have a look at to give you an idea (please ignore the gay red coupling as its since been replaced)I'll get some pics later
