Hi all,

I want to connect an air intake tube/duct from the RHS front spoiler into the engine housing. I understood that this maybe intended for cooling the battery but now I wonder if it should be connected across the front of the engine to a component below/near the airflow sensor. The reason I think this is because there is already a pipe that connects to this component but just ends open ended inform of the radiator.

Some advice on what i should connect where would be helpful.

Have taken some photos to show current situation


thanks

Spencer

A convuluted tube should run from the RHS lower spoiler duct to the round connector at the bottom [and undernaeth] the battery box

That other convulated tube criss crossing the engine bay behind and at bottom of radiator is to draw warm air from exhaust over to the base of the air filter. there is a flap in the air filter which is thermostatically controlled. This allows warmer air to be supplied to inlet at start up

I think ?

Thanks - that confirms what i had heard. It seems a bit weird though the tube carrying the warm air to the filter just trails behind the radiator, would have though it would have some sort of fixing....
