hey, I'm trying to figure out if the air box/engine cover is shorter on the 320 vs the V8 one I have (which is making contact with the hood)

can someone measure these 2 locations of the engine cover for me please?

thank you all! happy new year!

at the back, nearest windscreen end

11 cm in the middle, and 9 cm at the side, NOT including the mounting clip, and then 7 cm at the thin outer end. about 5 cm at the front end pretty uniformly.:nerd:

were the clips removed when you measured? or did you just measure the plastic extrusion?

didn't measure the clips at all

the thickest bit is back middle 11cm, that's where it joins the MAF housing. The clips can't be more than 5 cm max in addition.
