    Looking good bud.

    How does it sound compared to your old modified airbox?

    Thanks.
    TBH she sounds about the same, maybe a bit quieter, but it's real CF and shiny!

    I do miss the OEM Airbox though. I still have it just in case I change my mind.

    You can't beat parts which are either shiny or real carbon fibre lol. I personally think the CDA looks better than the standard airbox; should free up the engine a bit too.

    Catch tank looks stunning......(stupid question alert)......what does it do?!

    Yeah, I like Matte black too, so I'm kinda torn, but the throttle response is better, as in it picks up better than before.

    The catch tank is so reflective it's daft! The camera on my phone just doesn't do it justice
    It's function is to take cam cover "blow by" gases and condense them and send the oil free gasses back to the inlet manifold.
    It makes for a much cleaner throttle body and healthier combustion.
    The OEM way involves not condensing the gases to rid them of oil, the whole filthy mixture get sent straight back to the throttle body.
