Airbox Mod

Recommended Posts

Hi, my airbox is boring and the clips keep coming off.

I want to do something special with it but can't decide what.

Some ideas:

Spray it Union Jack colours

Airbrush the Lotus logo on it

Re shape the box to take a different filter

Replace with K&Ns

Any thoughts or has anyone got any pics of modded ones??

Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

With the Dellorto's habit of spitting fuel out of the engine due to slight gas blow back I'd aboid the K&N stand alone route. You can end up with a combustible mix of fuel and air where you don't want it which can lead to an engine bay fire.

That's not K&N's fault, it's common to any air filter system that would be exposed to the air outside a partially sealed tract.

CF looks like a good option.

Hmm, sounds an interesting proposition, never done any cf moulding before but I can see the appeal. I can reduce the overall size to take a different filter, in fact the possibilities are endless.
