Duct on Air box

Post by Lukeh17 » Fri Jan 05, 2018 3:37 pm

On the air box there is some duct that is attached to the box. However the material is perished. Where can I get some more stuff or what do you recommend?

Thanks

I no longer have the OE airbox, but when I did I used to use this stuff - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1m-Aluminium ... LG3SCDqb5A

i used a huge diameter peice of nylon reinforced braided hose i fose in a bin and so far has lasted ages.
i tried the aluminium stuff but found it fell apart quickly.
maybe a peice of high temp silicone hose?

i just figured that the weight reduction was more beneficial than the warm air feed
