Intake Mod for 156 2.0

Two quick ones about the intake mod.

Is there any preference between the JTD/V6/GTA intake pipe. I plan to grab one from a scrap yard. Should I just grab the cheapest one I find.

And once I have removed the resonator and replaced it with the pipe, where does the other end of the pipe go.
I cant view images on the site. And Google Images mostly shows the air box with the pipe on it sitting on a table.

Actually one more.
Is there any mods people do to get more air into the box. Perhaps cutting a hole in it and running some tubing to an area you wont pick up any water. It sounds like it would help. But if you have to run the pipe to far away I doubt it would do anything.

JTD and V6 pipes are the same. GTA is a bit bigger in diameter. end goes to the same place resonators end goes, underneath the left headlights.

about your last question, some people take out the plastic trumpet/cone inside the air filter box, although it is believed to be there to improve performance...
I recently removed both the resonator and the trumpet, but have not fitted the v6 intake. kind of like how it goes and growls

about JTD and GTA diameter difference some people say it should be unnoticeable as the JTD pipe is able to feed air to the V6 that has much more power than the TS.

The GTA intake does not have the kink which I think is to clear the intercooler of the diesel cars but all of the petrol models have the identical kinked pipe. Used to be lots of info on alfa156net

The kink also clears the gearbox cooler of the V6 Q-System.

There was also a longer (ie higher) intake pipe used on 156TS outside Europe (plus on Italian Police versions) which didn't have the resonator. Chances of getting one of those now would be quite slim though.

I put a GTA pipe on one of my 2.0TS's and to be honest I couldn't tell any difference.

Personally I wouldn't bother, as it isn't worth the cost and hassle.

Also keep the cone inside the airbox otherwise you will loose performance.
