For what its worth i.e. if anyone else has this problem... The airbox that i found is in decent nick.. otherwise check out the alfaman.. There are some good alternatives but my priority was the cost, alfaman's advice was excellent and he can provide reconditioned airboxes for 156's
2512chrisb - Ta for responding, i did see the thread on how to replace/repair the airbox - unfortunately, i really do not have the time, or ability to do this.. - not embarrassed (honest!!) and would like to be able to, but - the garage that i use is great, honest, reasonably priced and in order to keep costs down always asks me to try and get hold of these types of items when they fail and then bring them in.
As for the turbo pipe, it is the metal one (on the top, nearside) and further to calling around a dozen yards on Friday.. i called the nearest alfa dealer and they have ordered a new one for me..
Totters.. I was on the beach trying my best to prevent the Ugs falling off cliff's into the sea... was it good?
