    i decided to buy an MTC motorsport CAI from ebay on weds for the bargain price of £179.99 +£14.99 delivery

    and it turned up fri morning:yahoo:

    But to be honest i was a little disappointed with the quality (see pics)

    it had sharp edges and the welds inside were not ground flush.

    but after getting the dremel out and some sand paper, and a blast with some matt black, it ended up like this, (excuse the filter, it was a spare group A cosworth filter i had lying around)

    my car is std and it made a great difference in the way it drove, smoother revs and the engine brake is less, so off throttle is much smoother, it may of given a bit more power and pick up is better.

    apart from the quality of the kit when it arrived, i would say its definitely worth the money:icon_thumright:

    just need to clean up the engine bay now:sob:

    That's poor finishing tbh, especially when it sits on silicone pipes, but as with everything, they're fighting with ebay fees, mass market & being able to turn them out enough to make a profit, by no means is that an excuse, but things slip with demands in life.

    Is the maf section the correct size on this kit and is it circular or oval in shape?

    Circular, it's the same as the ITG.

    Function over form, considering its nearly half the price of an AMD version i'd say it looks good tbh

    Exactly, it works very well too. A few rough edges on bits you don't even see wouldn't stop me buying again.

    yeah id still buy again, for the price it was a good buy, and the car feels better so does its job,
    looks better painted black.
