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 availabil

A few folks have been following my build thread for a while now, and in particular my efforts to design an air intake for the Exige V6. Given the amount of time, energy, trial, error, and results from

You have a picture with the colored hose installed?

Need more install pictures to be honest but a few below... one of which the owner has a catch can so an additional bung needed..

@MrP_ Thanks Paul for sharing... really does set the complete install off nicely with the silicone hose. Can I ask what product you use as it looks nice and glossy!

Carpro Perl, mixed 1:1, you can buff it off quicker for more matte finish, or layer it if you want to go proper shiny.

All arrived and fitted. Nice product :thumbup:

Some fitted pics for those that want to see, taking a photo of a black pipe in a dark engine bay is not the most exciting though, especially with the ugly washer bottle neck so close!

Fitted my kit over Christmas and was able to finally take the car out this afternoon. I didn’t need to remove the wheel arch, which was a benefit. Followed the bedding in instructions to the letter, by allowing the car to idle for some 20 minutes when fitted. 

 

Took the the car out today and gradually increased revs during the course of the test. Did some 40 miles of mixed driving and the throttle response is certainly better. I’m not a lover of supercharger whine, although coming from a Honda S1, the additional noise provides a more visceral experience. 

 

The roads were were very slippery, but running with everything off, the car revs a lot more eagerly, and I did manage to give it 90% throttle in 3rd and it felt significantly more rapid than before. Whilst throttle blips still aren’t the best, there’s a definite and welcomed improvement, complimented by some more noise, which makes it more of an event.

 

Looking forward to giving it full throttle in the dry😀

Lots. 

There is no straight route from the inlet to the throttle body on an Evora.

Imran’s system uses a straight, aluminium tube with the filter as close to the inlet as possible.  That bar gets in the way of a straight tube. 

(We looked in the back of my Evora to confirm it. I have a similar filter/airbox to the one you posted above).

The other challenge I have with that design on the Evora is how the filter sits next to the engine vs far away from direct heat coming from it...

Thanks @Bravo73 and @alias23, sorry for hijacking this thread, it just seemed there would be so much space if the stock air box was removed.

But I accept your wisdom here, if you say it can’t be done then fair enough, what a shame for all the Evora owners though :)

@Bibs that looks pretty cool! 

It looks good close up and sounds great too. The amount of space it frees up is pretty amazing too.

Think you and @Bibs need to get dirty together in the garage, then you could add your excellent build quality to expand into Evora bits!

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!
