Pipercross Hfic Installation

7 posts in this topic

so i got myself one of these > OOohlalaaa!

ive installed it but got some concerns...

- the cold air feed doesnt fit properly on the ram air duct, the pipe to small

- the screws and bolts that hold down the lid are loose!!! and i cant tighten it anymore, its like there's a stopper on the nut

- the two rear mounting bits dont really kkeep the kit in place?? anyway to tighten this?

- and what do i do with the 'isolation fixing bracket', it has nothing to clip into now :/

sorry if this is a bit of a list, but if anyone has got one of these, any help would be appreciated :)

the noise is pretty damn sexy btw :wub:

Seems like a piece of junk to me based on most of it not fitting right, I'd send it back for either refund/replacement.

I'm with the man above. Is there a parts list in the box so you can check it's all there?

I find Pipercross a bit cheap, which isn't so bad if you're willing to retrofit, but honestly that seems off.

Just as a matter of interest -

Apart from making more noise is there any other difference, eg - does the engine pull better/ rev better?
