i guess you are referring to performance improvements....

to be honest i knew it wouldnt make the 1.25 any quicker, but the set up is sooo perfect for adding a cone on i just had to try it out!

so far the differences i would say are: improved throttle response, meatier sound in general, really deep tone above 3k revs
AND it looks waaaaaay better than the standard airbox and stupidly restrictive panel!

Will run it for a week or so with the cone and see how it is in general, it's getting chucked if it ruins my mpg targets!!!!
lol

well in that case nico, it is adefinate must, all it really involvesis undoing4screws and sticking a cone on the end of the current pipe to the airbox !!! :D

all my mates have commented on the noise! sounded pretty mad today in the multi storey car park!!!

and at the end of the day if you dont like it you can always take it off and put the standard panel filter back



In other news:

My JL 12w3 arrived today

Now all i need is a box, amp, wires, bass control/eq unit to allow use with standard head unit, dynamat for the boot lid and a hell of a lot of messing about to get a cable thru the bulkhead to the battery!!!! :huh: <_< :(

And Nico, i really want to change my front footwell lights to a matching red to the other interior lights, and also put them in the rear.

Could you point me in the direction of some decent bulbs please?
Thanks
