:shock: I wondered about the positioning of the scoops. What do they relate to?

I remember seeing that on a TZD estate before on here, did someone remove it or break the car?
Lots of Motors, mostly semi broken....

Well, the larger scoop will force air into the intercooler on a TD.
The Smaller scoop? Erm, would provide air flow to the diesel filter / sphere on a pre K reg TD..
Cant see any point at all in the smaller scoop, and the larger scoop is only good for a TD really, and even then, it makes very little difference, other than ensuring you'll be spending every other day removing leaves and twigs from the intercooler in the autumn.
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

What amazes me is that you can go to the pickle and see loads of perfectly serviceable, useful stuff being dumped, and then you go ebay and see rubbish like this that people think is worth selling!!!
