Was thinking about using the Dremel to do some breather runs in the stock box. One length about 1cm thick accross the front to catch air from under the headlight (will adjust the fuses position), the other a smaller one on the arch side to catch air coming up the arch. Was going to gasket goo a length of fly screen for a bit of protection. Got the idea from the B series turbo air box..... Do you guys think it will make a difference and is it legal? Going to use a k&n million mile job too so I can maintain it when any dirt enters the added hole. Your advise would be good
Cheers

Cheers mate, liked the idea of induction via bonnet scoop but it would seem to be too much of a cop magnet to be worth it. SWC told me about the au snorkle and I am trying to find an Ebay bargain one ( 1am no bids job) but have not come accross one. Got the extractors going on hopefully this weekend and au injectors in the weeks to follow. Does the B series air box itself allow better flow or is it everything else that helps?

definatly get extractors, i fitted the cheaper end of the market ones and they made a big enough difference to make me happy(lukey brand), aparently the pacemakers are better tho
cutting the airbox out will remove some of your restriction, then youve got the pipe between airbox and t/b
