A couple pictures of my CAI botch job. Seen a Piper-x universal filter for a good price and had to get it on the car as after hearing the noises the turbo makes without the sound-proof airbox :rolleyes: and i couldnt go back to driving it with that airbox as without it you get some very amazing sounds not to mention the high pitch jet-like whine you get (ive only really heard this sort of turbo noise on cars with high boost and external wastegates).

My car also has the P-torque ECU upgrade and Forge BOV and all together its perfect!

After install and first drive i did feel a little more low end power and a little at the top but need to get an RR to see for sure. Sounds and feels great though!:cool:

Below are some pictures of the install but watch this space as if tomorrow is dry/ish i will get some footage up of how it sounds on the move etc - its priceless :D

Picture 3 is of the lovely 4-way tie-wrap i used to secure the filter in place and seems to have done the trick so that the filter isnt bouncing off everything!

It is indeed. Shame about this damn weather as its not the kind you want when out having fun in the car. But i can live with driving very slowly as the noises are great even at slow pace!

couple short vids of the car whilst the rain still persists!
