Dude, the gains you are feeling are probably in your head.
I have driven my car with no intake piping on it (straight from the throttle body), and there is minmal difference between that and having the full intake setup on there including filter.


Wouldn't that be a real bad idea, letting unfiltered air go straight through the throttle body into the engine?

Its bad but takes a while to f**k the engine. look at how many jap cars there are with massive turbos without filter that have been going for thousands of kays. Not a performance mods though just ricey wank

Out of all these intakes no.6 is the best by far..............

3.5inch (88mm) pipe coming from a pod filter to the 80mm factory flexi pipe is giving me the extra gain in power.

Cheers Luke.............


IIRC... ANY system is only as good as its weakest point... whats the point of an 88mm pipe into a 80mm pipe? it will only bottleneck at the 80mm section so really 8mm of rice-penis :roll:

as most people have said, any gain you feel is probably in your head! the mind is powerful! hell even when bowsaw stares in the mirror for long enough he thinks hes sexy

So Happy told you how handsome i was? beauty is in the eye of the beer holder.
