i decided to buy an MTC motorsport CAI from ebay on weds for the bargain price of £179.99 +£14.99 delivery
and it turned up fri morning
But to be honest i was a little disappointed with the quality (see pics)
it had sharp edges and the welds inside were not ground flush.
but after getting the dremel out and some sand paper, and a blast with some matt black, it ended up like this, (excuse the filter, it was a spare group A cosworth filter i had lying around)
my car is std and it made a great difference in the way it drove, smoother revs and the engine brake is less, so off throttle is much smoother, it may of given a bit more power and pick up is better.
apart from the quality of the kit when it arrived, i would say its definitely worth the money
just need to clean up the engine bay now
