<strong>I wholly endorse the BMC Carbon Dynamic Airbox...it replaces the stock air box/filter with a carbon fibre version and flings the silencer for a nice throbby note on throttle, similar to the saburu boxer hum
Every TS owner thats heard it has bought one for themselves, its the goods! wink
I doubt theres any considerable performance gains. It did feel a bit more eager to accelerate at lower revs in taller gears the first few days after i got it, but that may have been just the extra noise playin tricks on the mind. It certainly wont decrease performance tho.</strong><hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">They claim about a 8-10HP increase I believe, not bad, and think they have graphs to 'prove'. If you get one, try a before and after DYno and let us know! Not just the air flow, but the carbon box keeps the air cooler. Supposed to be the best though.
Anyway a standard BMC filter in orig box gave me better throttle responce, but its the silencer intake behind the frt bumper that really blocks the flow, so that is coming off to be replaced with the V6/JTD plain intake pipe soon - should give similar results to many of the induction kits 9maybe not as good as the CDA) but cost £8 and some time!!
Hold the rear end slide....don't run wide!
