    I received the above today, and its a really nice bit of kit.

    Really easy to fit, especially as i was just upgrading from my P-flo.

    Car feels better for it too, and its quieter, which is nice, I was getting a little fed up with all the noises.

    I bought it in white to match the Ibis paintwork.

    Its based on the ITG, but engineered in Yorkshire.

    Certainly fills the engine bay up nicely!

    Gains have been seen of 19bhp from the standard air box on a Leon.

    If you want one, get in touch with me, and I'll get it a bit cheaper for you.

    Colours available are, Blue, Black and White. Red is now sold out as it was popular.

    silicone hoses are shiny slippery things, should be easy to clean!

    My hand prints were all over the hoses from just doing a service. Brake cleaner did the trick nicely.


    The stainless steel bits will be mega easy too.

    Not worried ;)

    Looks good mate!

    When you say quieter than your old P-flo is it literally just a little quieter but the sound is the same? I've just removed my P-flo because I didn't really like the noise it produced.

    If the P-Flo is say a 10/10 in loudness, the MTC is a 5/10.

    The P-Flo made a 'tinny' loud breathing noise as its all metal, the MTC isnt/doesn't, kind of hard to explain!

    All I can really hear now is my dump valve, where as before all I could hear is the P-Flo..

    The filters come seperately, I bought an ITG one.

    Prices including filter will be around £255.

    It was based on the ITG with the only real difference being the price!

    One thing to note when your sent this kit is the fixing screwing on the right hand side by the battery box is an 'Allen' key bolt.

    My experience with these are that they are USELESS!!

    I've changed mine to a proper 'Hex head' bolt and a couple of washers so i can actually get a spanner on it and tighten it properly.

    So for those of you who have, or will buy this kit, the size thread is M6, forgotten what length i bought but take an educated guess.

    Very happy with it now :w00t:

    There's no room to go any bigger pipes really! actual mm I'm unsure of.

    The MAF is the same spec as the ITG.

    I'll second mjr901 on the MTC, the size of the neck of the filter is 89 so quess u can get the diameter of pipes from that? Here's mine fitted, pics aren't the best cos just straight from iPhone. An cheers mjr901 I'll get the other bolt for it as I don't think it tightens quite enough.. View attachment 18838 View attachment 18839 View attachment 18840

    I also used the original spring clamp on the pipe connecting onto the turbo as I don't think jubilee clips are really strong enough to hold them on. Had that prob on the 8l with the badger 5 tip blowing off all the time until I put a spring clamp on it.

    I used the Jubilees provided, had no problems with them.

    The pipes all went together very tightly, particularly the elbow that goes onto the turbo.

    Those spring clips...I'd rather eat my own foot. damn things.

    I also said to the seller that it might be a good idea to provide a large jubilee to hold the filter on. As when i bought the ITG filter, it doesn't come with one, just a sticker...

    Luckily I dug one out, but most wouldn't, and I think it would be beneficial and easier on the mind to jubilee the filter on.

    Did he provide one for you?

    I cant see much detail in your high quality snaps :rock:

    I know what you mean, but after replacing the badger 5 numerous times I just thought I'd put the clamp on while my plumbers pliers were in there elimant 😁. But ye kit goes together really easy an fits perfect in engine bay, well chuffed with it and for the price it speaks for it self!

    Id be more inclined to jubilee him on mate, the spring clips are tight-ish, but in my opinion not a patch on a jubilee.

    Yesterday i measured the air intake flow rate and got 267g/s with it (stage 2 Shark, 16deg outside). So its up there with the 'big boys', which is good.

    Did some more logging on the intake today.

    The Long Term Fuel Trims.

    +4.7%, Again very good.

    :applaus:

    Some more values (pinched from VWVortex) that need to be added to...

    Stock Intake: Fuel Trims from +0 to +5% - Safe
    APR Carbonio: +0 to +8% - Safe
    Forge WINtake: +10 to +25% - CEL Possible
    Forge TWINtake: +5 to +15% - CEL Unlikely
    EVOMs Intake: +0 to +~5% - Safe
    CTS Turbo Intake: +0 to +~5% - Safe
    Neuspeed P-Flo Intake: +0 to +~8% - Safe
    VWR Intake: +5 to +20% - CEL Possible
    VWR Intake (Post-Warranty Modification): +0 to ~8% - CEL Unlikely
    Volant Intake: +0 to +~5% - Safe
    Injen Intake: +5 to +20% - CEL Possible
    BSH Intake: +0 to ~10% - CEL Unlikely
