:o Hadn't realised i was getting as bad as Flexy! :(

Although at least my obsession is with something decent! :lol:

Dunno, it certainly feels quicker.

If the Rolling Road day ever happens i'm tempted to put the standard airbox back on so i can have a proper comparison

I agree with Flexy, i mean Gaz :P

More low down torque and power on lift defiantly :thumbsup:

I definitely think that you and someone with a typhoon should turn up with the stock box fittted and have them rr and then switch to the Typhoon/A'PEXi and rr them again. That might finally settle the debate between the 2 as you will be rr on the same machine on the same day and both copmparing oe with aftermarket.

I guess technically, Gaz should rr his 3 times (OE, A'PEXi and then steal a Typhoon too) as that would give a truly flat benchmark.

Well Awsome GTI give 3 runs on the day so that would be possible if someone could lend me a Typhoon! :lol:

If it does go ahead then there will be T-Sports with all 3 Setups, that should give a fair set of results.

Anybody wanna find out the BHP before lift then? I know its been done with the Type R boys

I would guess about 120-130 at 6k RPM, would the rolling road show this? I guess it would.

While were on this, did someone say you could buy a wire extension from Mr T?

Cheers

Read my earlier reply, the old thread has part numbers in it, if you don’t wish to do what i did, just cut the little black wire off the plug then add a bit more wire in and reattach.

I did read it sorry but was thinking that was something different. What were the parts you got? Just extra wire?

New Plug, Internals (terminals etc) & Wires. The job looks great, i will post a picture later, note: I had to purchase a new Plug as mine was dodgy internally from when the wire snapped. So you probably only need the wires themselves, I had all the wires extended so this problem will defiantly not return :thumbsup:

Pic would be excellent cheers. Ive taken mine back off so i dont destroy the wires.

Ps. For anybody fitting one, i dont know about everyone else but the online manual was far superior to the one in the box

Can second that! K&N's online manuals are spot on, used one to install mine! :thumbsup:

The A'PEXi ones were in Japanese! :lol:

As you can see the plug has changed along with the wires

So the plug came with new wires and you had then soldered to your existing?

Since mine isnt broken I guess the best bet is just to get an electrician to extend the cables a tad

Cheers for the help
