has anybody seen the BA/BF covers under the bonnet hinge/they have slots that let air in from the front air duct...thinking of cutting an area the same style as on a typhoon so my Aunger snorkel can get more into it and it still looks factory.any ideas?

just dont make that fancy lip bit at the top of the pipe or the whole exercise will be pointless. Have a look under the bonnet when you close it and youll see how close it comes to completely blocking off that section where the pipe goes

What do you think you are doing?????
Nothing to be proud of their, redline your car when cold champ and you risk loosing your engine. BUT i guess you dont care or you would not have done it. So carry on then..... You may find yourself walking mate.

because you were revving your engine, not 'showing' your airbox in the clip?

Impressive time in your sig though, what other mods have you got?

G,day ,
Typhoon valve springs
75mm SS T.B
Ported upper and lower manifold
4490 ceramic coated Pacemakers
GT twin system
Bluepower tune
Turbo tailshaft , 3.45 lsd, std stall after trying numerous hi-stalls
Modified front struts and rear shocks

http://www.bseries.com.au/cgi-bin/index ... item&i=314
This is a link to my Home page , whenever i set a personal goal i update here ^^^ I have a lot of build threads saved on disc from underdrives /to painting rocker covers /changing diff ratios /fitting stall converters and weight reduction......
I guess in time these will become available to those who want their N/A too haul asss ...Cheers.

Yep i cant even spin my 19"s on the street ( which saves a great deal of money ) but the 16"s at willowbank only chirp on the 1-2 shift..
Just need proper slicks so i can stall the car up to 2500+ and get that 1.8 60ft time !!!
Reached a compromise at the moment car is soft and yet stable on change of direction with my 27mm sway bar ..
