    Strut brace with VX Inlet?

    Just curious guys but where can I get a Strut brace made to fit around my VX Inlet?, from what I gather I can't get one and it needs to be custom made, Is this correct and if so where or who do I go to?.

    Or if anyone knows of where I can get one can they help out please?.

    Much love

    The cheaper polisher metal ones on eBay fit. About 30/40 quid, they fit in front of the Inlet

    I'm using the one Sam posted. Flipped it round as it wouldn't fit over my TB to airbox pipe.

    I've got a VX inlet on my 1.4 and fitted the above strut brace



    Mount it 'backwards', tilt it slightly and it'll fit around the inlet and throttle body with a good few mm of clearance all round.
