    Yeah it did sound a little like that, not as loud as the TT though. I couldn't really tell if it was any better I only went round the block with it on.

    Just thought id mention, that when i switched from samco tip to a b5 80mm tip the sound isnt as loud, for whatever reason. Certainly not as loud as that TT. That tt sounds like when the bonnet seal is removed, but with it its not as bad as that at all.

    Less noise, more power, win win.

    Just to add, dont buy a k&n version of this. Yes the filter is huge but it doesnt incorperate a velocity stack style setup like the oem paper version so its false economy if buying it for that reason, you may as well stick with a jetex aftermarket filter.

    Thanks for clearing that up. It was the first video I could find on YouTube that was mildly relevant.

    Other than Jardo, has anyone else carried out any form of logging/seen gains?

    Will you be logging Prawn?

    I will, but logs from my car are meaningless Pretty much as it maxxes out the MAF by 5k rpm and runs blind from there on up.

    I'll do a few logs before and after though and see if airflows whilst within the sensors range are comparable or not.

    Fairly sure the red / black version is just what GSF supply mate.

    I gave them the BluePrint part number for the red / black filter, so if it turns up and it's a rancid colour, I'll just say 'no thanks'

    Jardo's dislike is for the info you put, because it's bad news. It's just unfortunate that it comes across as disliking you :laugh:

    Fingers crossed, just going to ask Niki if he can do it on Thursday when I'm there.

    I'm sure he'll be interested enough to say yes.

    Sounds not much different to a Jetex to be honest, just a little bit quieter.

    Shouldn't be oiled as it is a paper filter.

    No point in the spoon or mugen one, the point of this modification is that it is cheap and offers better filtration than a foam or jetex style synthetic filter. So an aftermarket filter will be no better than the £40 Jetex in terms of filtration, where the paper OE filter is.

    Just ordered one along with a reducer so i can bin off my old K&N and swap it for this nice big unoiled filter. then get myself a new MAF then down to get a good scan to see what else needs doing to the car before i finally get it in for a remap (only taken me 18 months...)

    Just a thought, are these filters designed to run in a box? On the S2000 I mean. So if they get wet or any oil on them would they fall to bits?

    Hmmm

    I've got an AGU, just to confirm, I need an 84mm (ish) - 70mm silicon reducer to fit this filter to mine?

    i would purchase a filter then measure it properly. I'd say its more like 86-70.

    Then phone up jsperformance for silicone coupler. Quoted me 14£ to make one up.

    At £20 it'd be rude not to, but how often would you guys change this? Annually?

    Personally, I think I'd use a 70-80 silicon reducer and an 80mm alloy coupler to go inside the filter neck. Seems a nicer way of doing it.
