Get the open cone back on I love the sound :)
It sounds like I've put a whistle in the glovebox with the Cobb 😂
I've put the standard one back in for now, just in case for work tomorrow. Don't want to be limping 18 miles 😂

I don't understand why the open ended one was fine and the one that's close to standard threw up errors 🥴

Just too much air for the diesel I think

Surprised it whistles all the time unless diesels are different.
The Ramair on the RS only whistles for about 20 secs on start up then it’s a superb whooshing sound when planting it :)
I'll be honest the K&N and the Cobb sounded lovely induction noise wise, it's just like I've thrown a couple squeeling hamsters and bats in the glovebox when I put my foot down 😂
Whistles like a dumper from the open cast mine 😂

Do you think Pumaspeed will give me a slightly different map to accommodate? I'm stage 1r now, I thought it would take it fine 🤷

I don’t think Pumaspeed would have a different map to accommodate that. They tend to recommend Ramair induction which is why I have it with the MAXD 400 map.

Yoo from Merthyr then mate as you mention the open cast ?

I've always wondered why Pumaspeed sell the filters but then don't recommend them with the stages 🤔
My plan is to go stage 2r next year at some point then 3r with the hybrid turbo/single mass but I'm a baby and scared of putting a dummy dpf on and getting caught/failing 😂
Yeah from Merthyr buddy, you close?

Because it's easy money, cheap to buy in unbranded (most likely from China) then paint their own name on then bump up the price and make a decent profit. It's the same with the BD performance and ram air, they're all the same **** filters with their own name painted on. And the reason they don't recommend them is they are ****, a sock on the end of the maf would do a better job of filtering.
