Air filter box knackered!

One little screw, that was all I wanted, but no! The ***** broke.

Was having a poke about and found that the top of the V6's air filter box was a bit loose. So I tightened it a whisker, lots of cracks later the top of the air box is now very cracked. Taped up with gaffer tape and all is well. However, I now have a yearning for a cone air filter type jobby so I can throw the air box away and stamp on it.

I have seen universal ones, but the joint from the box to the entry into the air metering enclosure is very square, most filters only come with adaptors for circular inlets.

Any ideas?
Don't want break the bank, just want a shiny new air filter.

(Oh yeah, PS, would like info. on a good methods of ducting the cold stuff up to a cone filter too please)

Opinion on here seems to suggest a decent panel filter is the way to go, not a cone filter.

I may have a cover that will fit, from the 8v I'm breaking. Think I've got a 16v cover somewhere too

I'd stick with the airbox and good panel filter. The 8 valve airbox is exactly the same as the V6.
To add to my "airbox is better" cruisade, FKCreams Ruddles V6 (+200bhp) still has the airbox in it and it was all tuned to fcuk on R/R's and track time etc when it was modded. They would have went with the best setup surely ???

23 for the main box

27 for the cover

Just gos to show you that Alfa knows which
bit is more likely to break,when you see
that just the cover is more expensive
than the main box wink

They ain't stupid!!!
