Mercedes S65 AMG M275 Airbox repair

My S65 AMG has the right hand side airbox tab broken off.

As a result, the airbox isnt secured into the inlet of the turbo, no good!

I designed and 3d printed a replacement.

Here is the bit that is broken.

and here is what its meant to look like:

Now I was not about to pay £500 for a new airbox so I set about 3d printing a replacement.

Some time later, I had a template:

After some measuring and printing, I had something usable.

I trimmed some of the broken pieces from the airbox and then epoxied it into place. Annoyingly, it dried in a slightly odd angle, but it should be fine!
