    I did look at that, but couldn't find anything "inexpensive enough" I have a 2.5" silicone coupling ( 3$ off ebay )coming will use on the outside of the round part of the airbox ,at the moment its a piece of tubing off a garden light connecting the abs and the stock airbox. Looked in kitchen section of stores, cant seem to find a cheap "short ram" The diameter needs to be about 2.375" or less at the connection, i also think the hood might be RIGHT above the end of the ram. Did you have any problem closing the hood?

    but impressive moose!

    Totally a Photoshop job! Didn't actually do anything! Just wondered what it would look like

    If it really showes any performance gain it really is a brilliant mod. I'd probably try. Custom exhaust place to bend me a tube to fit under the hood(and look cool too). What's your take as far as it goes as a performance mod?

    I'd have to say its not worse, its snowy here and I changed to 14" dia wheels (so accel better) it chirps the tires in 2nd now and i dont remeber it ever doing that. its MARGINALLY louder.....and inexpensive! ...and saves some restrictive hose, yes it may be drawing hotter air than the stock location, but i did take temperature measurements on my civic (which is what the ABS homemeade flare is from) and i couldnt see enough of a temp difference based on underhood location to be worth worrying about, the micra may be different (better) though. I will be keeping it on.

    Rawtek makes the Micra cup exhaust and sells them to everyone.

    I have had contact with the company that supplies the micra cup with their exhaust system, they said they are selling it for 795$ and it's available to the public. Buying one off of them end of next month will let you all know how it all goes! As for the intake that will be a future buy but hoping to have it by the end of the summer!!

    There's a group buy deal avail for the exhaust, you just need to get 5-10 people on board. Shipping will be free for in Canada.
