    This company are having me test their prototype because they want to tap into the VAG market,it seems to go a bit quicker but it also has a noise like a dump valve off a nova :wtf:
    I spoke to the technicians and they say the next step is rolling road it with and without remap/filter to see the gains which was nice

    yes they are and I have the standard airbox so can change back
    a sponge cone is inside the carbon fibre body what you can see and they have a bit of modding to do on the one fitted

    I look forward to seeing what the rolling road results show. Have you got any idea what sort of price they are going to sell these for?

    200 for just the cone and four if you want the carbon fibre as well
    I'm on the fence regarding exhaust/air filters bhp increase claims by manufacturers but these guys said if you don't have any increase then we'll take it off and go back to the drawing board also they dyno'ed a few cars with rivals filters on and some decreased in power which was surprising

    Have you seen the Forge air filter?

    EXACTLY the same exterior design....

    Does the filter route into the cold air feed from the front then?

    ITG make some excellent kit normally, but £400 for the kit in carbon fibre???

    Seriously?

    Carbonio do a carbon fibre tube and filter for £200, and they are pushing it when you can get a copycat aluminium pipe and filter for £50.

    no I haven't seen the Forge one
    yes it does route into the cold air feed from the front
    figures are what I've been told which I thought was pricey but like what you said they make excellent kit
    drill your airbox if you want penny pinch

    I wouldnt think of using anything but ITG on carbs, but for standard air filters, it seems a little pricey.

    £400 is a bit steep! Even the GruppeM one is only around £320 now.
