Closer to 0% the better.
Ahhh right duuhh lol noob here. A take it at that stage you be wanting to upgrade fuel pump then?
Usually though yes, at the point where fuel requested and fuel actual start to drift apart, you'll miss fire and need more fuel-air ratio. to stop the car from running too lean.
Or you could tame the map...
Ahhh interesting to know for future. Still a bit away from that stage of the game haha
I've just fitted this kit today, but I didn't have the right sized socket for the bolts that you use to fit the heat shield.
I was just keen to know that this should be ok without the heat shield to run for a little bit?
I need to use the car to get the socket for the bolts.
Looks similar to the auto specialist/amd i have
Exactly the same,down to the fittings.
It seems to work well,and was one I wanted to try,but currently I can only use the adapted ITG I have on mine,as it's the only one that fits.
So you just replaced them with some M8 bolts? I thought you had from looking at your first picture, but couldn't be sure.
It feels quicker already, waiting on my shark map to arrive, but it looks like Monday before it gets sent back!
The front two simply unscrew, so you'd think the same for the rear 2. Incorrect.
Theres a 10mm nut underneath to undo for each one. Then they will simply unscrew.
I found this out the hard way by destroying mine :tumble:, but easily replaced if i went back to standard.
Then just replaced with proper nuts and bolts as you can do them up much tighter, which is important, as heat shields can rattle if not done up well.
I used fairly large washers and stepped down to a smaller one to spread the load better.
Hope this helps.
Some big pliers just to get the turn started. WD40 perhaps if its a little stiff, just avoid over spray on the manifold, else you may be smokin' a little when warm until it burns off!
You do not need a socket, not even sure there is one for it in say Halfrauds? But either way, a pointless purchase when you'll no doubt have pliers.
I'll fit it for you if your close, be happy to talk 8P.
I rang Matt earlier ( I think I woke him up to be fair ), and he said I needed an oversized socket to get them off. Many trips to my local tool outlet and even one to Halfords - I found you can't get a 26mm socket off the shelf, which is what it seemed to be.
After quickly nipping back out, I undid the nut on the back of the plastic jagged things, then my mole-grips actually managed to turn the thing )this time without being in danger of rounding the damn things off!).
Both came out without a fuss, so I turned them upside down, put a larger washer over each one, then the heat shield, then the nut off the back.
It was so much easier being able to do them up from this side, and now all is well.
I think I'll spray the TT cover matt black like I saw on another thread when I get time.
I'm quite interested in 1 of these... so you would all recommend 1 then...
and 1 other question.. what is that pipe on the left hand side of yuleys3's thats not on mjr901's original pics??
Fairly important to read some of what I wrote above too.
The bolt that fixes it to the right of the engine comes as an Allen fixing. (rubbish)
Now normally this would be fine, however unlike the ITG that comes with a support bracket further up, this doesn't.
So the weight of it is supported by this one fixing.
So to get it properly fixed you do need a hex bolt instead.
The allen one comes loose after a short time as you start rounding it off before you have it tight enough.
Mine be hasn't budged at all now.
Also, no trimming of pipes necessary.
The system should sit level like mine in the pictures.
ITG filter is the best option if I'm honest, yes a little expensive, but still the best looking and it completely fills the space behind the headlight :)
Cheers mate... Got the guys number off this thread, i'll give him a txt.... Had a look on ebay but couldnt see anything

As you can see the filter was too big to go horizontal so had to trim pipe and angle it down.

CAI ordered tonight :) ...
Had quite a lengthy chat with Matt... nice guy, really helpful and are really looking forward to getting this fitted now...
thanks for the responses...
Got a brand new 60/99 itg cylindrical filter for sale if anyone's interested..
we should have got him to do a gb
Matt black.... Not too interested in colours in the engine bay... Functionality over looks for me now, getting old..
TTS cover will be ordered soon aswell and that will be sprayed matt black also.... Stealthy engine bay and doesnt look that bad when dirty
Anyone know if motorcycle filter oil can be used on these? i'd imagine they are just the same thing eh?
I bought the Itg filter kit
If your not driving in loads of **** the filter will be better of if left dry.
a few people only use paper, one being the badger5 guy (following on facebook) and he was saying hes seen some damage caused by other filters than paper in his garage. Which is lucky for me being a cheapskate and buying a S2000 one lol.
Apparently the oil can get onto the MAF sensor? not sure whatelse it can do.
It will mess up the turbo or something along them lines, I've left my itg dry after Steve at stattlers told me too.
Spoke to Matt at MTC tonight again and he says its prob just best dry...
Used to have a YZ125 and used to oil the filter on that... But if that bike didnt come back filthy then I was doing something wrong! Haha
Reason why is the maf tube is not the same as std, nor others, and the sensor position is not the same inside the tube. this one places the sensor too far into the tube close to the other side of the tube.
Check your 032 fueling adaptions and report back what they say after some driving.
A lot of people are getting focussed on airflow,and as you point out,not taking into account other things such as placement of the MAF,and tubing diameters and restrictions etc etc.
I've got one of the original ITGs on mine,which was fitted after Stg3 to replace the original CAI,and despite being one of the "older" devices on the market,flow has never been a problem,even with the sort of turbo,and boost levels being run through it.
and after fiddling with the revo fueling it did this with the revo/b5 hybrid intake on it
I turned it back to previous settings afterwards.. was just curious as to what it would do with just fueling change from 6 to 9. Now I know - lol.. and reverted it again.
I would'nt oil a foam filter personally as it seems to get sucked out too easily and onto the maf sensor down stream.
the most effective coating I have seen was RamAirs polymer coating as it was physically sticky so not sucked out of the filter itself.
