Fitting CDA to lowered car
Tried fitting a CDA to my JTS which is on eibach pro kit springs (-30mm). Problem I'm having is with the position of the MAF after the 90 degree elbow, once I attach the CDA (using a small silicon coupler), there is simply not enough room for the CDA. It is impossible to add some ducting from beneath the CDA to take it away from the road and out to the front of the car.
Has anyone else expereinced the same problem and how did ye get around it?
I could source some more silicon and mount it horizontally, this would add another 90 degree bend but I wouldnt mind that once the ducting is positioned correctly.
Other option is to get rid of the original duct from MAF to TB, shorten this and position the MAF along there, this would decrease the length of intake facing downwards. Quite a bit of modifying though and difficult to measure up and get correct silicon hose lengths.
All help appreciated.
