another update

 

still waiting on my brake light ..(taking its time now)

 

also working on another mod, ive not seen done before, it wont add any beneficial gains but will add some colour to the area

 

also removed a front part of the air intake, and can definitely notice an increase in torque, however found out i couldn't get my bonnet open today, must of knocked the cable when i removed the item

this is the part of the induction system i removed

 

to remove it open ya bonnet, remove the front plastic piece with the 4 screws

 

then undo a bolt either side of the part, using a T30 allen key

 

once the screws are out it will be free however still attached to the airbox, it takes a good hard tug to pull it off, be careful when doing this as not to disturb the locking cable, (this is where i think i broke mine resulting in me not being able to open my bonnet)

 

REMEMBER to either keep the bolts safe somewhere in ya house etc or put them back in the holes and screw in tightly

(i put the screws back in and did them up tight and they are still in there strong)

the part is on order should arrive some time next week, i must say tho this mod is purely cosmetic, it has no performance values

 

should brighten up the engine bay a little hopefully
