  • Percy CDTI FITTED with pic's

    Right last night i fittedmy air box

    Its a Percy air box with black pipes

    As some of you may know i follwed the instructions to the letter or so i thought lol, i connected (soldered) the black wire to the black and white wire thus leaving the engine managment light on FAIL

    anyway re fixed this moring but that has come with is own problems as i soldered the wires i had to re cut the already to short wires ! thus leaving the wires that come out of plug for the air flow metre very short. Meaning i cound not fit the plastic sleeve provided so i have wrapped the wiresin black insulation tape all the way along looks surprisingly tidy to be fair .

    Will be looking for a breaker though so i can get a new plug and re join the wires properlly

    a few pics of the air box , Note this one also has a k and n high flow panel filter in

    what i took off


    then on








    Comments welcome .

    thanks

    Arron

        Looking good arron dude I did mine in the rain at work and that didn't turn out tooo well either with an extension lead trawlin accross the carpark for the soldering iron and hot air gun

        Your hose seems to have quite a buldge in it compared tom mine?? Where the hard pipe goes tithe turbo pipe. Maybe pushed it in to far?

                Looks good mate, just needs a little tidying up if i'm honest..
                Put all the clips facing the same way, and get some pvc tubing to cover the wires so it looks oe

                    will have a tidy up now but as i9 have said above i cant get tubing to fit now so will have to wait for a breaker so i can get a new plug and rejoin wires

                          looks spot on mate,

                          you need some of this to finish it off... can get it in a number of colours.
