Its not cheap the cams fit but on thete own are useless so a remap is needed free flowing exhaust and an rs ecu to make it work and a power boist valve change the intake to an rs you cant just change cams the engine wouldnt run all in its cheaper to fit an rs engine in the car

You fitted a Pipercross panel filter - Pipercross also make the venom- its a cone- type filter similar to a K&N, but ts encapsulated in a shroud with a sealed cool-air intake/ CAIS, so it does not draw warm air, other aftermarket performance filter manufacturers have similar products now

Often when you fit a (new clean) panel filter you notice a performance increase/ improvement because it replaces an old/ dirty/ clogged filter, and the aftermarket "performance" filter makes the induction sound louder, which can give the subjective impression of more power, often other parts of the intake are more restictive than the filter itself (like small diameter tubing leading to the filter) - it depends on the exact design of the car/ engine
