    Ive got one on my KO3, its a good intake, main reason I bought mine was it was 2nd hand but unused. My car's making good top end and has very good throttle response with it on.
    Downsides are no heat shield included (for the air filter-it has a shield for the turbo) and the cone supplied is smaller then the Evoms one, although it sits much closer to the grille venturi which is better.

    What was their justification for going this route over the ITG? Did you also get the race kit cold air extension with it too?

    He said that they seem to be selling lots of them, plus i'm only gonna be going to stage one with the car so they said the nuespeed would be up to the job. didn't buy the extension piece as that was an extra £150.

    Gonna try make up my own heatshield for it though

    just had a look at the neuspeed site and they seem to show the connection for the re-circ pipe connection lol, it also says it includes a heat shield as well, with it being matt-black youll find it will absorb a lot of heat regardless of the shield, if you start getting an irregular idle you should stick some heat wrap on the pipe, i had to do it on my Evoms and its cured the problem... adds a nice bit of shine to the engine lol

    Just found these pics of one fitted, it looks pretty good in fairness so i probably give it a go. Any idea's how i could go about making a heatshield for it?

    the only heat shield you need is included, the ally bit bolts on over where the turbo & down pipe is so you wont need to make one, wht i am confused about is what the extra pipe connection is for, the one towards the cone and the cone does look a little on the small side

    What I meant what it doesnt have a heat shield at the front for the cone filter..there is one at the back. Heat wrapping made a big difference to throttle response when setting off from a warm idle.

    So how is the pipe secured in the engine bay??? then, is it just fitted to the turbo and then rest on top of the engine or are there brakets on it to support the weight???

    ah right lol
    its fixed at the turbo, then the large plastic heat shield that surrounds the cone, that is bolted to chassis... believe it or not there is a spare mounting point by the battery! and then its attached to the heat shield by a jubilee clip, its very solid!

    yea mate the 2" is too wide, its hard enough to wrap the curves with the 1.5" as it is lol out of the 30' roll ive got about 1.5' left so the 1.5" is plenty :thumbsup:

    Filter has arrived, that pipe bit you were on about was actually a rubber bung for screwing kit to engine to make the pipe secure. Looks ok so may give it a try.

    Well, got around to fitting it today. And i gotta say it's a lovely bit of kit, fitting was a doddle thanx to the one piece pipe section. The induction noise is spot on too, not too loud but better than standard, no much turbo chatter either which i didnt really want. Only thing i hate is the ugly fecking enging thats left on show, lol, gonna have to get a nuespeed carbon engine cover i think.

    Also fitted my milltek today.....awesome sound on that bad boy. lovely burbble. Was worried it would be too loud as got the non res section but it's just right

    Looks good Paul.
    Have you thought about trimming the OEM engine cover to fit?
    That's what i'll be doing once my Twintake arrives.

    You need some protective heat wrap on that now, you will notice a difference. That pipe get well hot, much more then the standard plastic airbox.
