ralphmusic On a related subject, the stock aero is designed to take air flow along the side and into the intakes, so why not have an additional grill at the opening to the side vents? The recently seen rear three-quarter light air intake pictured below would reduce the risk of OPR ingress and provide cooler air although I haven't seen anything about the pressure at that higher intake point.
MotorheadRalph, With their track experience, presumably Manthey developed the side intake grilles for a reason! Much the same as having the grilles on the front intakes?Item 35 in the pic only appears to cover the fan side of the duct but not sure what function it performs other than as an air guide - doesn’t the fan extract air from the engine bay? From your previous post I would imagine that although the side grilles aren’t expensive their fitment could perhaps incur a significant labour charge? Jeff
AndrewCS....What this does not show ... is that there is another grille in 18, that protects the air filter tract. I believe that these were a recall / retro fit to the 718`s.....
