    the car was holding back like mad with a nasty flat spot...so after speaking to chris and the guys at vxr performance center up the road i decided to go for the ramair 888 replacement filter! makes the car soooo much smoother to drive and at the price of £45 i think its a good price! as you can see i made a temporary cold air feed while mines getting made! i recommend every one to ditch the induction kits and get one of these

    I think a lot of the problem with basic Induction Kits is heat soak. Your just "sucking in" hot air from within the engine bay.

    MonkeeBoys is better as its all encased, so it cuts out a lot of the heat soak. It seems the most common way is a modded airbox.

    Nice car though mate. Looks very good. Id recommend bonnet lifters to anyone - they make ANY engine bay shot look better IMO.....
