ok bit of a dilemma, im looking to uprade to one of the above but unsure on which to choose.
reason being i went to a rolling road day last weekend and made 208.4bhp, not bad i didnt think? however was soon upstaged by a chap with the same car who ran 232.6bhp only mods being a decat pipe and a k&n cone filter.
now any genuis would say these 2 differences should make up 24bhp but anyway....ive heard all the storys about cone heat soak blah blah this clearly didnt come into play as the bonnet was up it was a cold day and had a massive industrial fan blowing at it so fact. it was sucking in more air hense me wanting to uprade but taking into consideration everyday driving and minimising heat soak. so im eyeing up the above.
I dont want to hear no airbox mod and panel filter bull because i already have it and having thought about it is a load of crap. first of all the airfeed isnt big enough, the pipe changes shape, opens up into a big chamber and a big filter restricting and slowing down air speed and then the airbox outlet on a 3.2 is right over near the left side of the box so overall the inlet track is too disturbed and inconsistent, and as for the airbox mod....LOL the pipe you rip out actually directs the airflow out of the airbox so removing it jus alows the air to free roam in the box before being sucked in so dont see how you would advantage from this what so ever.
So it really has to go for a shorter, bigger more consistent inlet system with minimal chance of air speed disturbance just wondering what experience people have with these 2 im questioning? both look cool in carbon, viper has a 150mm ram pipe, CDA has 100mm inlet/outlets just which to choose?
