    Alot of the golf boys use these, its just a cheap RAM air version.

    Filter looks too small on it and also youve got to be careful that it doesnt suck water up or its good by engine.

    could I not change it for a bigger filter? Surely it would have been made so it had enough clearance so that it didnt suck up water?

    Is there really colder air less than a metre lower to the ground ? These kits are almost as bad as the electric turbo chargers/magnets on fuels lines/any other snake oil ebay special IMHO. All you are doing is providing an easier route for water and any other rubbish hoovered up off the floor into your engine.

    Personally I wouldn't go near one.

    right okay then. I trust your advice so Im not going to buy it. Is there any induction kits you can recommend because everyone seems to be against them.

    everyone is against the fact that an induction kit will suck warmer air into the engine compared to your stock airbox, this has been proven (theres a thread somewhere!!)

    if i was going to get an induction kit i would get a bma cda, totally enclosed, made of carbon fibre so is fairly good at repelling heat soak and looks schmint imo, defo would not go anywhere near an ebay special, guaranteed power loss right there!!
