Help Rapid HP induction kit any good??

Guys, is this induction kit any good??


Seen it on flea-bay and tempted by price, or should I be looking at another, better-known system like BMC??

She's due for a pre-summer service etc and thought about getting it fitted then.

Any experience of Rapid HP anyone??

Cheers peeps.

not sure of the exact item but it looks like a cone filter so the normal precautions apply.

can be over oiled and can damage MAF
hot air intake from engine bay even with cai pipe needs shielding.

a drop in replacement filter from a quality supplier is probably a safer bet and cheaper [£30] unless you want that 'induction roar' and sacrafice a few bhp.

alternativelt a CDA seems the best option but at £170+ its a big lump of money

No bhp gain claimed just 'increased performance' I'd leave it.

The bloke who owns the grage I use told me that he thought there was no advantage to be gained from an induction kit, as the inlet route for the GTV was unobstructed anyway. You're probably better off spending your money on a performance exhaust.
