Spent some alone time with Rambo on Saturday.


Gone is the K&N GenII.

After a little tickling, a little fettling, some gentle stroking and (after smacking my head on the bonnet latch for the 13,000th time) 15 minutes of continuous swearing without repeating myself once.........

Rambo has a new nozzle to suck through!!

DS Induction kit is inhaling great bucketfuls of air, and subsequently whooshing wonderfully on lift off.


Very pleased with it.


Is Rambo quicker with the DS Induction kit? Possibly. Who knows? I don't care either way. I LOVE the noise.

As much as I like the kit now it is installed, if I had to make one criticism it would be the instructions.

Man alive, they BADLY need re-writing.

But hey ho - I figured it out in the end.

Wasn't that bad actually - helped IMMENSELY by not having to remove the original airbox, as I already had the K&N GenII installed.

Rambo has done about 100 miles since, and it hasn't fallen off yet. So far so good......

RR day at Ric Woods could be interesting. If anyone is asked to sit on the nose of Rambo to keep him flying off the rollers, I wouldn't personally - not unless you potentially want bits of a DS Induction kit in your ear....

Personally i do not think there is a performance difference between the gen and DSCi. Or maybe that should rephrased as a tangible one from the drivers seat.I look at it like Decatting the induction element
. with the KN you have sports cat(the box thing in front of the MAF) and the DSCi is a decat(no 'cat'
) But the noise is the main thing.
