Hi all, Quick question....

What modification is needed to fit a Gen2 airfilter box in a Gen1, i know it fits in its place but the throttlebody pipe would be an issue which am sure could be resolved! Has Anyone carried out this mod to their Gen1? Would be great to know of the outcome and what was used etc.

Cheers

J

You'll need either a gen 2 decklid or one from a mezger so you don't end up with hot engine bay air going in.

You can also cut a second hole in the Gen 1 lid and change the snorkels to gen 2 type, much like the Gen 1 x51 airbox set up
