Hi all i was just wondering if the BA/BF Airbox will bolt straight in to an EF/EL with out any mods?

Also will the rest of a BA/BF intake go straight on?

Thanks,

The intake will fit if you have an EL because they have the same bolt threads on the plenium for the cross-over pipe. The airbox will not fit unless you bash the inner gaurd down a bit. I think you can only line up 1 or 2 of the original airbox mounting bolts?

thats all I know, cheers!!!

I'm interested to know how the AU compares as well.

Also, the BA box looks bigger in the photos than the EF/EL box, does it run a larger air filter? Is this one of the main reasons for the mod?

Any pics on what needs to be bashed and how much? I don't like the idea of setting a hammer to body panels, id be more inclined to heat up the plastic of the lower half of the airbox enough and mould it to suit.
