It will work, but not as well as if all the parts are fitted.


The MGB I posted has the multirams fitted, but we had to remake the lower box they, and the airflow meter sit on. This was for a number of reasons: the alternator is reverse mounted(only way we could get it in); the AFM would normally fit in that space; the box hung below the crossmember and wanted to be in the same place as the anti-rollbar. The new one is made of 75mm soil pipe and 90degree fittings, with the working parts of the AFM inserted on the passenger side. It all works with no issues.


So if you can find somewhere to put the multi-rams, the rest can be routed to it.

The front multiram valve is about the same size as the throttle body, the rear one is part of the plenum, so no issues there  :y

Alternatively you can fit the plenum from the Vectra 3.2 as that doesn't have multirams... Everthing else is the same ;)

Just tie off the multiram plugs, possibly use a resistor in the plugs if the eml is a problem.

Or, as a thought...

A pair of cone filters under each headlight, and place the front multiram just ahead of the throttle body with each intake feed following the shape of the radiator to the top...

Won't work, the multiram positioning is critical as its placed at a tuned resonant length in the inlet. If you can't get it in the correct position then its best binned (1K resistor is the DTC check, there is one soldered on the back of the connector in the vac solenoid)  :y

used the Omega latches for doors, made some fancy handles. doing lots of body work, remade rear of chassis and incorporated the removable tow bar socket from the Omega. Need some bits that I should have kept , the bit inside the fuel tank that the pump/fuel sender fits to and looks like I have front window mech and rear door inner mounting (WTF) . No Omegas in scrappy (did get an Insignia fuel flap though) so stuck. Cant post in wanted as I need to make a million posts before allowed :( , Have the 4 alloys and steel spare up for grabs, reasonable tyres if somewhat old.

Untangled the Omega wiring loom, had to see where it would run. Will have to replace the 2 big multi plugs with some smaller ones and take out stuff thats not used. Using Omega steering column as it fits spot on, trouble is the lads working for me at the time destroyed the column switch gear and its mountings and cut the plug off  removing the steering lock . Will be on the look out for some soon and a steering wheel hub for after market wheel.

After weeks of work I have a box of redundant cables and plugs, replaced the 2 big multi connectors and "loomed " up into groups where I could. Strange way they run lots of cables to connection behind dash as in there are 2 ign live wires running all the way from behind dash to under bonnet and earths do the same. Next job is sorting rad fan relays as only one needed and removing A/C relay plugs.
