Plastic guards
« on: July 06, 2017, 07:31:59 AM »
Im trying to figure out why the plastic protection covers that are located under the front bumper L&R ( connects to the inner fenders..or should! ) wont fit. I have the original covers / parts that in Eper are refered to as 51839987 Protection left and 51839986 Protection right, under "Punto Evo Abarth". But they wont fit at all. I read somewhere that the T-Jet model has them aswell, and that they will fit this model. Sounds a bit strange to me, but can anyone confirm?

Thanks

So i fitted the guards today...with a bit of modification. But beter to have them, then to drive without. Especially when you have a conefilter sucking in air just above that opening.  So now im searching for an (Injen) prefilter aswell, so i can drive in damp conditions, without risk getting water in my Engine...

If you can't find the injen version, ebay sell the K&N filter covers on ebay.  :)

Overboost: Yes ive seen all of them on E-bay. But when it comes to Injen, it mainly shippes from USA, wich means 20-25% tax when it arrives in Sweden.

After much searching and loads of e-mails, ive actually found a few dealers in Sweden, and Norway that can supply INJEN, K&N and AEM p-filters.
So thats all good, ....exept a few weeks delivery time in some cases.

But the other issue during the past week, has instead been about what size to go for, and how much stretch they alow over the conefilter.
Sinse i have the BMC filter, they wont fit 100%. So well see wich one i go for, and ill just have to hope that it fits in the end :)

And sinse im also going to cut open the right air inlet, on the inside of the front bumper, ill probably have to add another type of foam in front of the filter aswell.
Otherwise, driving in heavy rain will be a nerv wrecking experience :)
Thanks
