Great work Imran! I already have a KT intake but if I were in the market for one now I would be all over this like a rash.

Your side sills are in fact going on my car as we speak.

Fantastic result, congrats and we'll take your word for it?! Let's see if I can support the cause, send me a message pls on cost and lead time.

That is one hell of a result, just brilliant. I wonder how that would compare to the KT. I have always sworn that kit gave a BIG power increase over standard airbox, so your could be better!

Great result, if I didn't already have the KT airbox I'd be ordering straight away :D

Thanks Mark! Much appreciate the comments.

The fueling is very rich from factory, so I felt comfortable the ECU would learn and be able to cope with the added intake, however it did take some work to get the pipe dimensions (and thickness) as well as the flange just right to keep the MAF happy. The first thing I wanted to see after the runs where the AFR readings which all came back healthy through out the rev range.

Thanks! 

I do want to be clear, the Komo-Tec solution is a proper solution, made by a proper company, and tested over thousands of miles across multiple countries and temperatures. In my opinion it is the best solution in the market!

I just wanted to create something simple as an alternative for the folks wanting a simple and relatively low cost option - Just as I did as an owner.

Again I also want re-iterate I'm not stating this is 'the' 380bhp kit... Yes the dyno shows a very healthy improvement to power, BUT in no way am I making these claims for everybody, what I do believe is that the kit will improve the howl of the charger, improve throttle response, and may help with a little extra power as a sugar coating.

Trying my best to think how to phrase this all so hope it all makes sense where I'm coming from... :)

Fair response - if you get power as a byproduct of your aims happy days! Great work on achieving what you set out to do, looks like a good product so I'll be after one no doubt :) 

Really good work, and great to see options emerging.

Makes a change that, despite evidence you could bank on, you're not claiming you've found the secret to unleashing easy power! But you'll be pleased to know that on other forums your air intake is being compared to post war MJ bikes being improved with V1 rocket induction knowledge. So despite you not claiming anything like that level of development, you've been credited with it

Impressive results, have you the before n after AFR readings too? Be interested to see what it brought the traditional rich setting to.

As Stu has said, can you please post the before and after AFR’s. Do you have any concerns that there is nothing left in the tank so to speak, once the car is on track and hot, to keep enough fuel going in to control temps? I know ignition will retard but then the extra is useless if not there when required. 

 

Trevor.


I'll get around to it at some point.

Imran, great job!

I'd like to see your A/F readings as well, if you have them.

Very Impressive results!

I guess you didnt dyno the car with the CupR intake on? if you could demonstrate gains over that system I'm sure you would have people queueing up round the block. I currently have SSC system but im tempted to try yours as the numbers are so impressive. do we need to message you to ask for prices?

Count me in as well, I am currently running the SSC induction, but would be ok to swap :) would be cool to actually dyno before and after and see the difference ! But that is a hell of a result !!! Congrats !
