    Talking here at last, apexi for me zlet

    turned up this morn, took a wk 2 travel from hong kong,but worth the wait espec as only cost under £50 inc p&p. and got free 75mm adapter.
    have to wait to put on as the hose to airbox is slightly 2 small, may need cut it a bit until i can order a new courtenay hose

    is a bit close init.

    shame cant fit it, although may make a small slit in hose 4 time being to make it fit, until can get new hose, although not sure if courtenay make a hose that size from standard AFM to 3inch adapter on apexi


    update. just spoke to courtenay and they said if u take measurements they will make one up for me in new yr, cant fault that at all

    they the muts nuts. they came out top in test of all filters, plus on the up side they increase the sound of DV 10 fold, and being non oil based u get no AFM probs, which is known with oil based filters.(generally ppl over oiling them)

    got mine here. shes a top person,

    Very good filters these are and yes the D/V sounds lot louder i have one on mine and have a standard courtney hose like you have in your pic you dont need to get another hose as the adapater plate will fit its a very very tight fit a bit of WD and it will go on ..

    nice looking filter there. This topic has been discussed to death in forums all over the world. You will sure enjoy the noise and looks but unless you can ensure a perfect outside temp air supply all you will get out of it is chavvy noise and the ear of the coppers.

    Bets of luck

    And btw that test is so flawed it isn't worth regarding as fact
    Be Happy

    agreed i was running one of these, noise was amazing

    but the heat soak was not even with a Heat sheild and low running temp in cold weather.

    much prefer the dbilas intake I now have
