looks good mate,

and great the way they are rechargable.

ive got one of these torches in mine, its 8 led and alluminium casing,

http://www.ebay.co.u...=item3f0bd0feca

accepts 3 AAA batterys via the adaptor or one D battery depending on how you wish to power it.

came in handy back in the snow and people thought i was a copper in the dar due to the 6000k tin of the leds. lol

always good to carry a torch in the car,

never know when you might need it, for yourself or other road users.

WOOOP

Been a while!

I just wished my car a happy 3rd birthday by getting it a MOT certificate, thankfully no faults.

It had an advisory that brake pads are getting a bit thin.. but i'll deal with that post christmas!

I'm looking at doing the easy bits of the service myself, so if anyone's interested i'll let you know how it goes!

Also, if anyone had done it and has hints / tips.. :)

My car is.covered in so many car park Dinks. Eugh.

New air filter was ment to come today, but never showed up! Yodel!!

I'm debating drilling a few holes in my air box, but its a funny shape with the filter being round...!

Dont drill the air box,

Remove the slam panel to locate the end of the snorkle,

Then drill a hole in the slam panel to allow more air in to snorkle,

Then create a stainless lid to cover hole on slam panel but scoop air from front.

The airbox is designed to spin air around the filter but the snorkle sucks in.

Remove the slam panel for 3-4 weeks, you will feel more responss and grunt from the exhaust.

It takes a couple of weeks for the greater air flow to eventually clear its way through the dpf etc. To reveal a free system

Now I'm interested.

What is this slam panel and what does it do?

Oh, and dpf?

The slam panel is the plastic panel that sits above the upper grill and helps slam air through the grill on the car.

But due to the design of fords air intake snorkle; it reduices air intake to the snorkle head.

And the dpf is the honycombe filter in your exhaust ßystem that catches the carbon,

Greater mass of air intake

Results in

Greager mass of blow out through the exhaust,

Resulting in the growel but will take a few weeks for full effect.

Sounds like you know your stuff...

How easy is it and what bit do I remove?

Is it there to aid filtration of big objects or anything?

I wouldnt leave it permanently removed due to cosmstic reasons.

Instead

Id locate the snorkle opening on the slam plate and drill a series of holes in a cosmetic friendly formation to both aid induction and look good.

The filter itself blocks all objects and removal of slam panel wont open up the filter housing.

It will open the ammount of air available to the snorkle to be sucked in to the filter.

At worst a leaf or two would get next to your filter inside the housing.
