    Hi Guys,

    The induction kit below look like the kit to replace the asc throttle and direct connection from throttle body to cone filter.
    However I cannot see where I should fit the maf, if the maf is not there I am sure I will have number of performance issues so guess I should place the maf box before the cone filter



    Ideas?



    thanks

    You will need the MAF.

    You could cut a MAF sized section from the pipe on that kit and buy two silicone couplings to fit the MAF, or by a kit that'll actually fit properly?

    your best bet is to make your own, all you need is some 80mm samco hose an some pipe with a cone.
    a heat sheild is a good idea if you have the extra monies.
    someone on the forums made a post doing the same thing, im pretty sure it was devil318is

    For the quality & cost of that induction kit you would be better off buying a good panel filter, debaffling your stock air box ( guides on here how to do it ) & fit the panel filter to your now derestricted air box.

    Exactly as Dane says. Get either a K&N or Pipercross panel filter and de-restrict your airbox or you will suffer heat soak with an induction kit as it gets rather warm in that engine bay!

    i already have this which looks ok

    APIRO Large Stainless Steel Air Filter HEAT SHIELD for Performance Induction Kit | eBay

    mine didn't come with any filters and the stock box was not on it, i had to install my own filter so i guess the cone is my best option but i am thinking whether any universal cone filter be as good as k&N , i think they would

    also the kit advertised above has a little hole which asking the seller, he mentioned it is for oil pcv valve which bmw pcv connects to the cylinder head cover so i guess the whole kit is shit and not compatible really. i am better off bulding my own one

    That heat shield isn't that good to be honest, you should really be looking at closing off your filter to the engine bay completely. You definitely don't want the CCV hose going to your intake otherwise you will be sucking oil vapour into your engine & it won't be returning to the sump like its supposed to. Quality filters does generally mean quality. I would either save your money for a good induction kit or deresrict a stock air box & fit a quality panel filter. You wont regret doing it properly, trust me.

    yep best idea, the metal pipe will get REAL hot!

    this is my air filter piping with my ASC removed.
