Hi lads, I'm finally getting a bit of time on the car since it came back from the bodyshop.

I'm currently fitting the genuine aerokit engine lid I've had for a year or so.

The bit I'm struggling with it the snorkel/inlet piece that should be on the inlet hole above where the air filter sits. The old one from my standard lid looks to be the correct size for the aperture but the slot in the rubber that clips onto the edges in the hole aren't wide enough for the thicker fibreglass edges.

So question is what part are you lads using?

I've looked at my GT3 pics but it had a totally different lid due to inlet being in a different place.

Anyway a few pics.










Nothing to be found for Carrera Aerokit on the Parts file so I'm baffled. It must be somewhere. Confused

Looks very similar:



Can't find a part number I'm afraid, will continue to keep an eye out.

Hi
Mine seems to have 45 deg slots filed in the fibreglass to enable the Std bellows to fit

Thanks for looking Neil. Thumb

Bill that's superb. Thanks a lot. worship
My mate Craig said to do exactly that, but I wanted to check before taking a dremel to my engine lid.

Great pics. I'll copy that exactly.
Cheers and welcome along by the way (well older member, but not many posts, you know what I mean Wink ) Thumb

Bill very nice set of mods and now also noted the alluminium pedals and are those dial surround ring covers . how can you not have been telling us about these mods how you find them etc . Its always good to read about what others are doing to their cars as I spend half my life bleating on about mods and getting blamed by guys wives for talking them into spending money on the cars Floor Floor I need more support on here from guys personalising their cars. Floor maybe you could get yourself on some wives hit lists and give me a reprieve Grin Grin my challage to you is to get to 100 posts before Xmas Thumb Grin Grin and no I dont mean xmas 2028 Floor
