Finally, my DS Induction should arrive tomorrow. Almost guarantee that it will come whilst I'm at work
Last time UPS delivered something and I missed it I was given the option of picking it up 45 minutes away


Prey that its one of the Manchester depots and not Congleton again


The clips on youtube are pretty rubbish to be honest... Will it sound like this??

I've already done the hard bit as I removed the airbox to fit the K&N gen II. Can't see it taking me more than 45 minutes from start to finish. I'm like a kid waiting for Christmas day

If crossing fords on a regular basis then not a good idea.
If concerned about flooding don't go through it - turn around.

I killed a Mondeo TDCi in flooding on standard induction.
From now on be it standard or modified induction I'll be doing a u-turn.

Just have to be sensible and drive according to the conditions.
I was crawling in the Mondeo at the same speed as everyone else btw.
Most made it some did'nt.

I fitted it last night


The "45 minute job" turned into 2 hours
Pretty tricky in parts! Oh well its all done now. Think I will be getting the RS ecu cover in the future though to finish off the engine bay.

I changed from a K&N Gen II and this is much louder. You can hear the air rushing into the engine and then the standard DV dumping. I have already found how to get different noises
If I just change gear as normal I get a normal DV noise but if I floor it and lift off slightly I get some nice chatter


I know I'm a sad
but it has to be done


It feels a bit less restricted than the K&N but its probably just my mind playing tricks. I just wanted the noise


So all of my engine power mods have been completed now... Not sure where I go from here when I get used to it
I will just sit back and enjoy
