Has anyone fitted one of these babies! I know they are expensive but could be worth the money ;)

The engine bay is tight & the general view is a K&N panel filter is a better option!!!

Hi mate, i fitted many aftermarket filters in my time to various cars and although they look cool when fitted the performance gain to be honest wont really be worth having, saying that it will probably sound evil ;)

Thats what I was thinking! :P

I'm used to having a quiet grunt,don't know if I would like the extra noise or attention ;)

LoL, take the rubber inlet pipe off the throttle housing and run your car, probably wont sound much different with the kit fitted.

Would like to try it for a day just to test it!

Seems a lot of money for the extra BHP you will achieve.

Quick update,I fitted a K&N induction kit through the week,throttle response is better,revs up quicker,also like that extra grunt.

I kept the old air intake at the grill & fitted the new one also,had to squeeze the pipe as it was a bit tight,will post a pic soon to let people see it.

Still got the low gear torque so all in all i'm a happy chap :P
