Intake

The intake on the SW11 is fairly basic, but it's nice and short and unrestrictive. The intake is made up of:

I made a bracket which attaches to two of the studs in the AFM (that the adapter also attaches to), which extends to the top of the engine bay and is bolted to the little sill in front of the lid seal. I intend to make a cold air box in the future, which will most likely be fed cold air from a custom intake scoop similar to this one (but on the other side, obviously), or it may be scooped from under the car, although I'm less keen on that idea due to the dust and water that would often also be scooped up.

Positioning intake:
