I think I must be reverting to my early twenties or something... Someone has finally started producing a proper Induction Kit, as opposed to just universal cones for DIY fit, to the BJX format of 20VT engines. So..I decided to try one





Comes with a heatshield and fittings so will look a littlel ike this (my engine doesn't have the covers on etc.):

Yep it is, but it’s the skinny original, mine is a PD160 intake, Seat reckon they unlocked an extra 10bhp on the PD150 engines just with the fatter intake. It’s quite a sought after mod these days, they sell for silly money for a plastic ducting!

The car had its gear oil changed today, feels so smooooth!!!

Right, Ramair is on, makes cleaning the filter a lot easier, now I don't have to take the strut brace off to do so. I'm quite enjoying making lots of childish choo-choo noises with the DV etc too hah my engine bay needs a clean and my forge oil filler cap needs to go back on, but here it is:
