The ITG will be much better? How is this?

The J1 is a quality item and worth picking up second hand. As far as I know the itg is only available for ST anyway, I'm probably wrong on that but it's not really going to be much better at all. The materials with the J1 are top notch, the sheild fits perfect. And it relocates to exactly where it should be also.

The j1 is widely highly regarded for the fiesta, with good reason.

ITG are the kings of induction, trying to get their brochure to load up and check the applications, The J1 heatshield is just ALU, which is about as heat conductive as metal gets and not great at all, the ITG one relocates much further behind the headlight, but it's not on Pumaspeed either so they probably don't make one.

They do, do the K&N Typhoon, which is a pretty good piece of kit in any application but it's without a doubt the most expensive on the market for regular 4 cyl engines

What happened to the Carbon Viper kits? seem to have disappeared over the last couple of years.

The j1 noise it's lovely. Yes you are right about the metal being heat conductive, but the only way round that is plastic. However the metal sheild doesn't touch the filter and doesn't actually get very hot. There's no where else to relocate to without using a small panel filter which would limit air flow. Unless your running a blown car then a filter is just gravy anyway and more for induction roar, which the j1 excels at. Fitment and quality of the j1 is great.

I had itg trumpet filters on an Alfa once, and we sold them before and I like it. I'm just going on my personal experience of the j1, which is all good so far.
