    I've seen many people have them fitted on here from reading signatures and stuff. Anyone got a pic of theirs fitted?

    Also, is it a simple remove our air box and fit the s2000 cone on the end of the MAF? and job done? Or is there more to it ...

    I think Euro Car Parts do them as well for a decent price.

    Just checked they do have it for £18.60

    I just went direct too Honda for mine £20 all in! I do have a question tho what material are your s2000 filters made of? Not the actual filter but the body of the filter is it hard plastic? If so how do you make it fit an s3 is mine doesn't fit all that well?

    Yup, mine is made out of horrible lime green plastic.. Not sure about S3 fittings, though.

    Yeah still slips over the maf. I put a small brad of silicone around it to make sure it was sealed properly and cable tied the end to make sure it wouldn't slip off.

    See I tried just slipping it over the maf but it doesn't really fit all that well? It's really right and doesn't stay on all that well tbh it falls off! So I have ordered a straight bit of 80mm silicone hose so should be fine soon

    For the SAI pipe that is left on show when the airbox is removed, I don't plan on deleting the SAI system, instead I'm going to cable tie to under the come filter and put a smaller filter on the end of it, as provided with Neuspeed induction kit. Does anybody know the diameter of the SAI pipe so I can also buy a small filter for it?

    Ok so I did it and now my dump valve is making a stupid noise. Also feels like it's sloppy at spooling up?

    I have fitted my s2000 filter to my AGU into an aluminium heat shield off ebay and its sounds ridiculous when the dv dumps the air. It sounds a bit like a Dyson echoing lol. Also what am I supposed to do with the sensor that was attached to the top of the air box? Not sure what it does lol

    I may sound thick but what does it do exactly lol. When I unscrewed it from the airbox only half of it came away from the box. Do I need to get the other half out of the airbox. That part looks like a heat sink of some sort. Does it need to be fixed inside the heat shield?
