    Heatshielding is a waste of time on these cars, Not sure what TIP i have (came with the car) but i have the s2000 filter and love it. only problem with sticking it onto a car with a Ko3s is that you'll have to buy a adaptor to fit onto the MAF (something along the lines of 70-80mm reducer) can pick them up nice and cheap from ebay.

    I run the s2000 filter and there have been proven gains in air flow compared to filters like k&n and Jetex.

    As for the tip sfs do a super size one where it is less restrictive than others out there. Forge one will fit your current maf but if your planning on going to a vr6 housing and yellow / red top injectors then a sfs / rtech one would be a good choice.

    If you get the s2000 filter don't forget the reducer like lavis said. eBay or contact sfs direct with regards to the tip.

    I have odds and ends like a smoothed out air box with a new piper cross panel filter. But not many running them these days I don't think.

    Can't remember what else I have.

    Is yours just standard at the moment? Unmapped?
