Can someone describe the noise difference with Cobb intakes, is it more growly? Got hoops on mine, will I really hear any engine note difference considering the exhaust noise ?

How did you guys manage to get the filter through that opening? I'm struggling here with a GTC kit with a Piper filter, just can't find a way to shove the filter down that hole. Not that tempted to remove the bumper nor do I have access to a lift at the moment... :confused:

They are a very tight fit! I released the studs holding the top edge of the bumper to the chassis, gives a couple of extra mm, buts makes all the difference:thumbsup:

With the stereo off I can usually hear some turbo spool. Not loud, rather classy imho.

Done! If there were jeans in as tight fit as this kit they would prevent blood circulation in your lower body :D

Actually, I think that cutting a few centimeters off from filter end of the pipes would make installing a lot easier. Connector pipe on the turbo side is also quite cramped and could use some more space, so cutting would help with that as well.

BUMP, would a mod mind making this a sticky as it works for most intakes...?!

Thanks for the guides, video and write up were a big help.

I found the length of the pipes could do with being a few cm shorter to help make it an easier fit.

Total time it took me was a little over 1 and a half hours, thanks to the guide of course.

Anyone fitted Japspeed intakes with K&N filters using this guide?
Also, can the cone filters be removed for cleaning without too much hassle? Comments/info welcome . (Still undecided whether 76 mm intakes worth the trouble).

CC . great write up and brilliant pictures, that's what this site needs more of. having driven rf05 car there seems to be a great power increase after this mod along with the injectors. may tackle this after doing the led rear marker smoke led.

A most excellent and brilliantly documented write up CC - can't see me doing it though as I like someone who knows vaugely what they are doing in my engine bay!!
I would have taken half the time had I had my guide. Some of the guides out there suggest you dismantle half your pipework, which frankly is just not necessary.
