Which Air Cleaner box S1-S3?

PostPost by: robertverhey » Wed Sep 08, 2010 9:50 pm

Hello I am currently listing some surplus air cleaner bits on the dreaded ebay. Potential buyer has questioned whether the fibreglass airbox I've included is to suit Elan or Cortina..... I've seen both installed (My S3 has the shorter necked one, which I must say looks original). Anyhow you'll see how I've dealt with the issue at the listing, offering high bidder choice of two....wondering can someone confirm which one is right for the Elan?

Thanks listing is at (shameless plug, sorry!) http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... :MESELX:IT

The last picture looks like the ones that were on both of my S2s.

I'd be happy to post a pic here or measurements, if you wish.

The airbox you have looks like the S1-S3 Elan type. They look very similar to the Cortina version but I can confirm that the Elan version will not fit the Cortina. The airfilter canister is the same part for both cars.
