Blimey thats pretty good, well im not sure how much difference thier induction kit will actually make as it is still a k&n filter after all just like mine!!

haveing recently changed my induction kit from K&n gen 2 to dreamscience one all i can say is i did notice quite a differance in how the car goes ,its also so much more responsive to the throttle and has the added benefit of a much improved sound .
one thing i will say tho is the fitting brackets are a bit flimsy on the dreamscience unit and had a fair bit of trouble geting it to mount correctly as kept hitting the strutt brace no matter what we did to it so to cure this we made our own top bracket and mounted it from another point which made the kit fit correctly .
i think the dreamscience induction kit is an improvement over the K&N big time .
only my opinion tho ,sure someone will have there opinion aswell .

smoother lay out to the actuall pipework and also has no swirl chamber"box at top of K&N that ecu fits to"
it realy is a nice piece of kit ,if you can afford it personaly id say go for it as i doubt youl regret it .
im not saying the K&N is a bad piece of kit by any means ,mine served me well and had no issues with it at all but i do think the dreamscience one is a step up from the k&n in performance and sound.

as you can see from my signature i have collins dump valve and fitting kit ,with the dump valve and fitting kit i get minimal chatter,but i have tryd it with it off and get good chatter so have the choice realy dont i .
i also bought the RS ecu cover as i didnt like how the ecu mounted with the dreamscience kit .
when i first heard the ds cais i thought the guys had dump valves but turns out they didnt!!
i think it was money well spent to be honest ,you can always sell the K&N and get maybe £100:00 for it which will go towards your new ds cais?

Just got back from DS hq was a long day in the traffic lol, the guys at DS were great and a good laugh, unfortunatley there was 2 power cuts during the day lol none of which were DS's fault there was a problem with the main frame all the units around were down, which meant i never got my dyno done with mod c on gutted lol, we managed to get my standard dyno done which was 244bhp was quite shocked at that, BUT on the way home well what can i say, absalutley amazing the difference from when i got there with my perf+ on which was 274bhp, it feels so much smoother and absalutley relentless acceleration just doesnt stop haha, very good fuel economey on way back was averaging 31mpg And gave it a few blasts
didnt get the ds induction kit but i have been persueded on my next visit which will be next week cant wait lol then ill get a dyno done aswell to finalise the results, also was brilliant to see you again Jared mate bin a long time. thanks again very very impressed would highley recommend

I'm sure the newer maps will be done using the DS CAIS, therefore the maps work better when using it.
i.e. you should see an increase over the K&N as the map probably isn't optimised for it.
