    Just offered £45 as well, see what he comes back with. The feedback is a little worrying, i.e. the shipping problems, but simply put a Paypal dispute in if they mess about.

    the bad feedback is few and far between though - he's got 98.5%, think i'll trust him.

    These tips as good at the forge or bills one? Saw the tests done with bills tips and the results showed massive improvements combined with cone filter... This one seems good for the money wondered if you will get similar gains as it's half the price :-s

    They are supposed to be just as good as the forge or samco items and offer an improvement over the standard item.

    Shameless plug lol see my sig

    But seriously thats who I got mine from the delivery time wasnt too bad and the clips were easy to grab from halfrauds.

    not blowing my own trumpet, but i will - lol
    the silicon tip will not flow like my 3inch tip.... the gains i posted were of a silicon tip vs mine... and 19bhp and airflow gain to match is unheard of.

    for £45 plus shipping its good price tho, but it will not get you gains like the 3 inch one does

    I had one of these around a year ago, on a apy with esp, and it fitted fine no adjusting required,

    now I have the Badger5 3" Tip, much better

    Badger 5 one with a cone filter gave 19 bhp gains ..
    He said it's about £160 though but well worth it even if it shows 10bhp !!

    Mine is just a stage one, no adjustments were made to the map, so I would expect you to see a small improvement

    Well it's £65 now or £160 but the £160 off badger 5 is a 3" high flow so if you put decat and a map I'm sure it would be worth spending the extra as according to badger 5 there will be a more significant power increase .. Maybe drop him a message ..
    He know Alot more than me !! :-D I'm getting the one of badger 5 though !!
