  1. As I own a 350 Sport and live only 20 mins away, Imran kindly offered to fit my intake for me so that he could familiarize himself with any nuances of the 350 compared to the V6S. The actual availability and fitting came up very quick;y. As soon as Imran had received the ally tube from Europe then it was processed and the assembly completed yesterday in double-quick time and yesterday evening fitting commenced - this was the first one of the production batch; I felt honoured I collected the car this morning and what can I say. For those of you that have ordered the intake, you will not be disappointed. Firstly, how it looks and to my eyes it looks really nice, very professional. The welds are lovely and installed in the car it looks factory not aftermarket. The stock airbox has gone, thank christ. When you look at the stock box it seems such a torturous route for air to flow whereas with the new intake it’s just a direct straight flow - it’s got to be better right? DAMN RIGHT! Driving the car, throttle response is much sharper, the sucking of air is audible and I can now actually hear my supercharger! The car felt quicker and more urgent and I wasn’t giving it full chat as Imran advised to give the ecu time to learn the new airflow initially to avoid the possibility of any error codes. I suppose I drove it for about 45 mins and towards the end of the journey I was giving it a bit more stick with no protests from the ecu. I’m really pleased with this modification, it just lets the engine breathe, you can tell it’s much happier and you will be too. Well done Imran, give yourself a pat on the back pal, your hard work has been well worth it.
  2. Is it going to be ‘supermudfest’ with the amount of rain we’ve had today?
  3. Guys, I was fortunate enough tonight to experience this induction system first-hand as a passenger in Imran’s car. Compared to my (standard) 350 it is night and day different. I struggle to hear anything of the supercharger in mine but in Imran’s car you can clearly hear the induction noise and the supercharger whining away, I thought it sounded great, just how it should be! A look in the engine bay revealed the huge airbox gone and in it’s place the neat install of the indiction kit. I was shocked to realise just how much space the standard airbox takes up! All that weight! It’s crazy. Suffice to say my order remains in place. Lovely car by the way Imran.
  4. Definitely interested in this Imran! Cracking job.
  5. Thanks Chris, that is appreciated. I have just bought two standard tickets (@ £12.50 ea. as that was the only choice) so please feel free to buy bazza’s ticket.
  6. Is there anymore space on the stand? I thought it was for 50 cars but the tickets via the link say sold out?
  7. Hmm, The Willaston Massif...you wouldn’t want to mess with them would you.
  8. There is another way. It involves 9V batteries, tinfoil and full sugar coke. I did it on my titanium tips on another car and it worked well. See if you can google it.
  9. Why on earth would you want to leave such wonderful scenery behind? I just don’t get some people...
  10. Saw this on youtube...god, I still love the look of these, they’re timeless:
  11. Great! Thanks for your help. Are the clips straightforward to fit for re-assembly?
  12. Paint your garage walls with white masonry paint; you’ll be amazed how much nicer and larger it makes the space feel. How long was the drive to North Wales btw?
  13. If any of you guys fancy doing a proper session of pilates or yoga and suffering for it for the next two days, then I suggest you buy a set of DBW Pedals and try fitting the buggers! I think I may have cracked a rib after rolling around on the sills, doing a very convincing impression of a beached whale. I pity anyone who happened to walk by and heard the language. But they’re fitted and no, I haven’t tried them yet...just waiting for the pain to subside a bit first
  14. Is the passenger airbag cover easily removed? I’ve read on the Evora forums that it’s a bit of a ‘mare due to clips breaking but can’t find anything for the Exige?
