    Another induction kit question(SORRY)

    right after a week n a bit my new BMC CDA induction kit arrived! needles to say as soon as work was finished it was fired on the car!

    now i DON'T want the big grumble and loud exhaust sound on this car (been there, done that) but i was wanting a nice little noise tho.

    thing is.

    there is virtually feck all there!

    on the up side you hear the turbo spooling up really nice and the DV is slightly louder! and the car feels like its a wee bit more responsive

    should i be expecting a noise from the kit or not?
    The coupe...ITS ALIVE & back from the dead....again!

    A slight amount but it is a sealed induction kit, like a normal air box the casing muffles the induction roar.

    You will here something as the outer casing is thinner and more air is going thourgh.
