Some months ago I've fitted a Viper Pipecross to my VVC.
It turned out to have a TF airbox (no resonator), so no hassle
Just remove the old box and fit the new one in (the pipercross is essentially a tube of 200£).
To be honest, I don't know how much of a difference the mod will do, probably nothing.
I'v also redirected the intake on the side of the car but, again, don't know if any benefit.
Truth is that I had a broken cathalitic and exhaust. So, who knows, I reaped the benefits of lots of mods once fitted the Daytona kit.
As for the work itself: it's absolutely easy fit, and if you buy the thing and access the engine bay, everything will be very easy to figure out.
Best of luck!
EDIT: Ok, reading the all thread it seems you are already working on a solution or something. So scrap what I've said.
