Yes, that's right, TB boddies on Sandy's manifold with 20mm trumpets. The filter is 'ITG Megaflow sausage air filter JC50-S-65' the blank base is 'ITG-18JC50'.
More on the fitment here http://www.106rallyeforum.com/forum2...t=32190&page=2

Liking the complete removal, very tidy. Have a look in Mile's blog, hes cut a letterbox type slot out of his, looks good!

aye.. having it completely out also allows me to do the LHD wiper setup with a fraction more ease...

i also like what tommy has done with his (white S2 camoflage stuff on the covers) and put 4 holes above aech trumpet...

dose removing it or trimming it weaken it at all?

thanks for the pics stu, did look through your blog last night to see exactly how you'd done it, think it might be my best option aswell

i like how tommy and miles have done there's, but i want to run a proper filter ideally

anymore pics from people are welcome

to start off i just followed the top edge of the bulkhead sectionall the way to the struts either side.. then came up to the top edge of the wing (my pic explains it better) with a dremel as i couldn`t get my disc cutter in the scuttle area.. theres a monumental amount of seam sealer stuck under there also..

if thats not enough room you can go lower (as i did) but too far and you end up cutting the spotwelds (as i did) and the panels will seperate so you`ll need to mig/tig them back together....

I had to go as low as possible on mine, i could see that if i cut all the way to the bottom of the panel i would be into the inside of the car, so i cut it a little bit higher then warmed up the edge and beat it over with a heavy hammer and a wide drift, that way you can still retain the rigidity and have the scuttle very low, you can see this in the first pic.

i'll probably be going that route aswell, simply because i cant weld! bit of seam sealer over it and it'll be reet!

You need to host it on Photobucket, or similar. Then link to it, and use the [IMG] tags.

Go to Photobucket, click on the pic you want to show us.
On the right there will be some links, click on the IMG link (bottom one).
This automatically copies it.

Come back on to here, and just paste the link, and click Reply!

Looks very nice pal. Serious bit of kit you're building by the looks of it? Blog?

My personal favourite way of doing it (other than removing the whole thing like Stu as that is mint) is the way Beanie has done it. Super tidy. However, if it was me i'd go one step more and trim the corners down








However I would trim the side bit off to really neaten it up

Yeah i have a blog on southwest section lew, feel free to have alook, any comments suggestions are welcomed

I did the above on my old rallye, and decided to go the wholehog this time.

My thoughts are, that completely open should allow for the maximum amount of air circulation, and air to the boddies, and when aiming for over 200hp every little helps lol
