Breathing life back into this thread and hopefully my seemingly gutless abb....

I’m getting all the bits together for this conversion and am pretty much there now but would appreciate any pointers possible for the airbox to turbine induction pipe/fittings and what’s worked for you?

I’ve got the old style cylindrical air filter in the barrel type air box and would like to keep as ‘stock’ as standard if possible.

The van came with a piper filter and I was glad to get back to standard and away from the roar of the ‘upgrade’

Am I right in assuming I need to get from 70mm from the airbox to 50mm at the turbo flange through a couple of bends in the process?

I only intend running at 0.6 boost so hoping to avoid an inter cooler if possible.

Any pointers from your induction setup/experience?

If you have the original pipework from the donor you should find that you can use a mix of the aab airbox and a combination of the pipework from both. That's how mine works anyway.
