I think the lower section of the airbox could be unique to Morgan, Richard.
The top section is certainly Ford, but the lower section seems to have been specifically designed to fit the available space and shape on the Roadster.
Then the Morgan boffins, rather than devise a more complex (and probably more efficient) inlet tract, just took a hacksaw to the base of it.

Interesting thought Sid. I initially thought MMC wouldn't have the volume to justify a dedicated airbox moulding but then realised they do have one for the intake manifold complete with Morgan logo.

It still doesn't make sense for them to have a custom made airbox then take a hacksaw to it though. As well as the two Mustang airbox variants there were other cars fitted with the same Cyclone engine, Mazda, Lincoln, Ford Edge, F-150 and Transit even a Ginetta .... I wonder innocent

Umm, been to Ginetta a few years ago & they make quite a lot of custom parts in house, they even have their own Carbon Fibre shop

Might be worth a call Richard ?

Jon where did you get the plastic scoop from that you have put under the cowl I,have experimented with a made up scoop on my 2014 plus 4. The existing air duct just being strewn under the cowl ,with the scoop on it seemed to make a difference in acceleration,and low down power,so would be good to get a purpose made scoop

Series1, try Car Builder Solutions & Demon Tweeks, sometimes you also have to modify by cutting flanges off or warming with a hot air gun and deforming to fit
