Aternoon chaps,

Fear not this is not a thread about electric superchargers or any such crap.

I just bought one of the infamous haha Dave F induction kits off of eBay.

Ive got two questions though!

I paid 90 quid for it and it is as new and postage was free? did I pay over the odds? it had only just been put up and i excitedly clicked the buy it now button before anyone else could:sarcastic

Secondly, will i get any improvement in fuel consumption- i understand it will increase air flow and therefore give a tiny bit more power but will the ecu just over compensate and dump a load more fuel in and the MPG go dow or the reverse and it will go up?

Who has one and can answer the above

Thanks
James

if it's as new then £90 is a good price for a proper Dave F induction kit..

there was recently a group buy for Dave F inductions kits on here and they were significantly more than £90 each!

If you drive the same (which you probably won't because of the noise / placebo effect) then MPG should remain about the same..

ps they look just like a k&n, i personally avoid induction kits as they are magnets for hot air!, i think i would only be happy with a replacement filter!, but thats me, if they are trouble free then i suppose you have a good deal?

Hence the heat shield...

dave f induction kits are massive k&n filters with a custom made heatshield... perfectly teamed up to give some of the best results around for an induction kit

Would that be a thumbs down for it then? Previous K&Ns Ive had ive been happy with, only really noticed sharper throttle response on a VR6 Golf I used to own tbh

Either way ill give it a go and see how it goes
