Looks good.  Air box looks stock to me.

Might be a trick of the camera, but I'd be checking the Engine mounts if I were you.   ;)

To me, looks like the 1,3,5 side of the engine is sitting lower than the 2,4,6 side which would suggest the rubber mount has perished.  When it gets low enough, the block will start to rub through the PAS hose running along the chassis leg and cause you great problems.

Could just be a trick of the camera though, or my beer goggles playing up!  ;D

If the Airbox wobbles and feels loose it's because the rubber mounts on the inner wing have perished and fell to bits. Very common on all the Omega's i've had.

That's handy to know, I'm getting a bit of a list now on niggly jobs!!

The engine mounts are sound, I am parked on quite a camber so I reckon that's why one side looks lower  ;D

Looks good mate - would be better if you swapped the brown coolant tank for a clear one ;)  By the way your coolant level looks a little low.

Is that a strut top mount wearing - or do they move that much when parked on a kerb/similar?

Very nice engine bay. by the way!

Your missing the two plastic trims that clip either side of the radiator cowling.
