    personally speaking - I would have just bought one off you Bill.. ( if I was going for an induction kit )..

    but as far as your one goes Dan - it looks decent enough.. how are you finding it?.. any videos or sound clips?

    I had an Apexi intake on one of my previous cars! - great bit of kit, although mine was car specific so came with everything (all the brackets and rain shield/splash guard) - which was quite a good design as well!

    Very tidy handy work there my friend. Always nice to see someone taking the time to set up their induction kit properly. If you wanted to go that next step, you could get the sheild knocked up in fibre glass or carbon which would aid that bit more in reduction of radiated heat into that area from the engine (not to mention the look cool carbon factor). Also you could get the alloy pipe done in a composite too or get it ceramic coated. It would help in keeping that cool oxygen dense air that bit cooler on its way into your combustion chamber. Bit like as Tescos say ' every little helps'

    i was thinking about lagging the inlet pipe . the throttle body i linked in to the rad so as rad warms up so does the throttle body infact its can burn ye hand if you keep it there so air going thro it must be warmed up ? mite take pipes off throttle body and just link them to each other so thay can flow as norm .leaving the throttle body cold .got to worth a go
