For the longest time I've been wanting to add some filtration and a way to get colder air to the carbs on my '81 Spider. The carbs are dual Solex C40s with some DIYed trumpets.

First post here, wanted to test you guys straight away :D
I have 1978 series 1 Alfetta GTV, 2 liter with (two double) Dell'Orto carburettors.
