Air intake question

Recommended Posts

I'm starting work on my new elite with the help of lots of books as I'm a complete newb.

One thing I can see wrong is I'm missing the ducting which I'm guessing isn't great.

Can anyone advise where and how the ducting should terminate so I get nice cold air?

Would also be interested to hear of any options to upgrade the setup.

The ducting terminates at the end of the "groove" on the rear of the gloss black panel behind the radiator.  There should be a mild steel bracket that retains it at the end.  At least you've got the panel!  Good the see the oil cooler - worthwhile addition.

Pretty much as stated above. The ducting(which is spring wired) comes from the air intake box and turns at 90 deg and runs between the deflector panel and the engine and alternator. Terminating 2 or 3 inches short of the inner wheel arch. A plastic end with a flange on it is inserted in to the end and is retained close to the inner  wheel arch. My set up is standard except for a K&N air filter.
