As stated above i decided to have a go at some tweaking with my K&N cais.........as i want wanted more sound and if i could get it maybe more BHP, so i purchased an RS ecu cover to relocate the ecu, once that was taken care i was the left with quite alot of space so i removed the old K&N box and pipe, as i had already purchased some samco hoses and clips i had a go a coming up with a different design which didnt need the box and pipe so i cut the end off the pipe and used that to fix the cone filter to the samco and after alittle trimming i came up with this.........it is secured using the orginal K&N mounting bracket and a cable tie which you cant see in the pic.
with regards to the orginal ford intake pipe coming from behind the grill i bought another one from fords at the cost of approx £4 and with the use of a dremmel managed to fix the funnel so to speak on the opposite side to aid cooling onto the filter.
Driving + Sound
Well just as i hoped the sound difference is amazing there is so much turbo whistle and if you like it a very loud sneezing sound when coming of boost at high revs, the revs feel alot less restricted now and i have to say that there def seems to be an improvement in the way the car goes up the road as for figures .....i dont know but as people say if it feels better then its a good thing and thats all that matters to me.
i have been running this change for about a month now and have had no problems at all, and for the money i think its a great little mod to go with my Pro alloy IC, Turbo back (decat) Mongoose Exhaust and DS mod C.
Cost + Time
Rs ecu cover approx £60
Samco Hoses+Clips £70
k&N cais.....( well the filter and adaptor)
