you upgraded you filter too? upgrade to a free flowing filter (K&N for example) and they complement each other. I started with just the filter, noticed an improvement, then added the snorkel, and it got better again (throttle response, as for RWKW, poofteenth is about right).

edit: oh - I've gotten alot of comments about the 'meatier' induction noise. I've never heard it, I'm always inside :lol:

yeh, got the k&n filter in there already
also made a bee's d**k of difference

the exhaust and extractors made a noticeable difference :)

i'm happy with how the snorkel turned out (for a little bit of work) just hope that the paint hangs onto it despite the heat under the bonnet

Looks just like mine - paint and all. Good to see great minds like their Tickford emblems painted.

I did that a while ago. I also did the Ford logo on the rubber 'L' peice of intake piping that's on the throttle body, and the ECV or what ever it says on the air filter box. It happened when I walked past my open bonnet after getting some white out out of my pencil case in the car...
