          Looks like there might be issues with the way these are designed... or ??

              if theres a restriction in 1 part of the system, it has a knock on effect for the rest of the system.

              it can only continue to flow as much as the previous part lets through, so if it lets through nothing, then it will recieve nothing.
              Whats next?!?!?

                The thing I picked up on (rightly or wrongly) was the flex of the unit. They are saying that the engine vibrations will cause damage as the top end of the pipe is solid.....

                Sorry, I'm no technical wizz or even start to understand it all.... Just thoughts I'd post the link for reference...

                  surely thee would only be a benefit if you made the whole pipework that size? otherwise the air is only gonna be restricted further along

                    i thought the tophat was the restricting piece, it was smaller than the rest of the oe set up???

                        i thought the standard setup was 68mm diameter??? Im not too sure mate, i might be wrong.

                        But yes your right, it would be better to bore out the tophat. Someone on here sells them, cant remember who it is though.

                            yep, cant remember his name though. Not too expensive either.

                            For some reason Percysvxr keeps cropping up, but i know he does the airbox conversion cant recall whether he does the tophats either.
