INTAKE TRUNKING - Any answers?

Recommended Posts

The intake trunking (two pipes) feeding the engine bay cover on my 1980 Esprit S2 is baffling me and I can't find any reference to the correct set up in the manual.

I actually have two similar age cars and they're both running their pipes differently so I don't know which is correct.

Does anyone have a definitive answer for where the trunking should come from and go to on the offside(drivers side) of the car?

I would have thought that the offside 'ear' would have fed directly to the airbox but it may need to pick up ambient air from the grille in the loadspace rather than be force-fed fron the intake.

As always, your help is appreciated - thank you

Hi Simon,

It should be connected to the grille, not the ear. The other pipe which feeds into the engine cover should be connected to the ear so that cool air is fed in to the engine bay aid cooling.
