That cooler on the front is huge lol, looks like an epic machine, has a beastly look while still retaining a modest look.

EPIC IMPROVEMENT!

i will come too the epic improvment in a sec.

But first. The wheels looked a bit un shiney so i had a polish. I also used some trim wax on certain parts. And some new wipers.

Def needs new wiper arms as there mank.

Right the epic improvement - as youve probably read, its really stuttery at certain points. Like it boosts, stutters boosts, stutter stutter etc when you full/part throttle. Jam sport said this was most likely down to the fact of not enough air getting through when it was mapped (when it was mapped had small intercooler and pipes) which have now been improved, as you can see, there huge.

My first thought was not enough air? Air filter looks mank. Upon further inspection, it was mostly full with crap, not to mention it didnt fit on the end of the pipe and was cut dodgily. (i will get a pic)

I got my KnN appollo filter, which i had on my 2.0 Si, took the shroud off that encloses it due too the lack of space in the engine bay and put her on. The filter is not ideal as the diameter of it needs to be a bit bigger (i had to use a reducer to get it on)

OMG WHAT A DIFFERENCE

Took her down the road, liightly throttled, it took off, half throttle, carried on going, full throttle and we was going some.

It did stutter a tiny tiny tiny bit. But it felt like it was twice as quick. Its safe too say i and my friend next too me crapped ourselfs. Ive never been put so far back in a car seat by the shear power of car.

20 minutes later writing this and im still shaking.


Time too find a air filter that fits properly.

that dirty of a filter eh?

after the remap (if you still think it needs it) it should be fine (and FAST!) :D

Its still gonna go back for remapping. To make sure its right if you see what i mean.

Just makes you wonder why no one has picked up on it. Not even jamsport?

However there is a chance that when the guy made the current pipework he put that on? who knows....

At my work we see sooo many mercs and bmws that have running issues either because of dirty filters or crap (cheap and nasty) filters.

The spec sounds absolutely epic! What power are you pushing then?

Also, how does it handle?

Get it mapped properly ASAP. Engine longevity is all in the tune. (and keeping temperatures low under the bonnet!)
