I had a k&n induction on a mark 4 escort cab. This was about 7 years ago. I went with the post office. They were ok but it was a while ago.

The escort was modded to hell so insurance was a bit of a pain but got there in the end.

Not worth it anyway tbh.

I wouldnt cancel the insurance unless its not renewed yet as it will impact your ability to get cover later on.

It's all very confusing as I can get insured on say an RS focus but not my fiesta with induction kit. I see what u mean with not changing... Surley another 35 horses are worth me laughing ford insure of as it's far from the 5* service they discribe and ford were banging on about the performance upgrades when I got my car but failed to tell me the insurance :-/ ... I must get a quote for a fiesta st standard and a mk7 mountune 155 cos I'm guessing it's double the price for the extra 5 horses? .. Thanks people :-)

A lot of insurance companies are damanding more money for mods. Even Direct Line wanted another £70 a year for Tinting the rear windows. If your under 25, most insurers wont touch you if your car has had any mods at all.

Im guessing your not planning on stopping at the induction? Cause you will be lucky to get 1-2 from an induction kit.

Admiral are very easy going on most mods, one of the few who allow you to add stuff when you are under 25.

If ever I get an Aston Martin, I may ask for fitting of this beast which claims 40 - 60bhp!

This quote from their site just made my day;

The GTE electric supercharger is not your average boat blower or fan you may have seen others sell. It uses high grade, high speed motor structures designed and tested in Germany and Japan for the ultimate air pressure. The motor spins to over 20,000 rpm within a few milliseconds. All necessary parts are included to install on any air intake setup. Our kits are designed to efficiently and safely for air into your engine. The supercharger activates only when your floor the vehicle. The reason is the charger is designed to operate for no longer than 1 minute continuously because of its high velocity. This is not a problem, because if you ran your vehicle for 1 minute floored, you would be running over 200MPH.
