    Yeah but it will still move about under load as the tip is not fitted to anything either!

    Mine was so tight it was a struggle to get on, I don't think there is much chance of it coming off although i popped a jubilee clip on anyway

    Bit of both in my honest opinion. My car is virtually standard, I put this on and u can hear the turbo which is nice, and it's more responsive.

    Surely sound is the same as a regular cone filter due to the design. Filtration is arguably better, with it being paper.

    How did Jardo get on with some proper testing?

    Im going back to std airbox with foam filter. The noise this s2000 filter makes is horrible. On low revs apply throttle and it sounds like a 1.0 corsa with a cone filter on. Deep throaty and goes nowhere untill boost comes in.
    It is 12"squared larger than the panel filter though and its only £9 so its ok, just not for me.
    im keeping my b5tip std airbox foam filter and 4" ducting the way it was.

    Did this today. Only cost me 15euro from my local motor factors. Did not notice any difference not that I was expecting any. Probably just breaths better. Only difference was more noise.

    H&R Springs, Koni FSD Shocks, s3dave's rear tie bars, LCR Brembo's, 18" ttrs alloys, replaced all suspension bushes, 15/20mm spacers front/rear.

    Now just waiting on my B5 exhaust manifold as the Relentless is goosed.

    Yeah you will need an adapter. I got mine from JSPerformance (thanks for the tip paultownsend) and got the filter off GSF.
    I asked for an 86-70x80mm adapter, I ended up trimming 10mm off the small dia though.

    Fitted it today along with a catch can (zip ties are temporary and many apologies for the dirty bay)

    No proper testing with the air filters as such, but I can now prove that my airflow calculations were 100% accurate.

    And as such the airflow gains must have equated to power.

    191.2 logged, 239bhp on the RR. 196 logged, 245 on RR. So it was spot on for me.
    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    Looking good there Luke! I haven't actually fitted mine yet. What spec is your car? Do you feel it's made any difference? I assume it sounds pretty mental?

    Almost standard ARY engine (180bhp), I'm having some boost problems so couldn't tell you if it's made any difference. Definitely sounds mean though

    Ah. I was hoping for a proper test on the rollers with a new Jetex vs an S2000 filter. The only real way to fairly test it.

    The paper filtration is good though, just the cost of replacing them at each service will add up. Or buy 10 at once

    Would like to see this Sam, just curious to see which filter will come out on top, paper vs performance filter.

    I never did get round to selling my filter earlier in the thread as there was a problem with paying through PayPal.. So I still have a Red filter for sale here if anyone is after one?

    Was on the car for about 5 mins. Would like £15 + £2 postage

    Just a quick thought on supporting the maf.
    I'm currently using the OE TIP. Next week il be ordering a creations motorsport silicone TIP.
    i take it these are a lot more ridged than the OE item? And with the end of the s2k filter zip tied to the inner wing hook, will provide enough support?

    Don't get a Creation tip they are poop, SFS supersized tip or Forge.
