Re: Get the GTA intake upgrade!!
Well I've only had mine for a week and it will be off again!! My V6 is going into BMC for it's overhaul. I broke the lid of the airbox a week or so ago so instead of replacing it with a standard Alfa box and air filter Justin said other people had upgraded to K&N filters and have them sitting in the airbox for protection against water ect. Therefore the box will be open at the top so no need for the intake pipe. This will be cheaper than buying the new airbox and I wont have to pay for an air filter in my service.
I have been toying with the idea of redirecting the mouth of the pipe so it sits right behind the little grill next to the foglamp at the bottom of the front bumper. This will force cold air into the box and around the new K&N filter.
I asked him about any damage to the MAF due to the K&N filter needing oiling. He assured me that if done correctly I wouldn't damage my MAF.
So should I sell my intake pipe or keep it and use it for redirecting cold air into the old airbox?
Also what, if any HP increase can I axpect from it?
Owning an Alfa is not a matter of life or death...... It's much more important than that.
