That'll do nicely - in fact, more than nicely. BIG WANT - NOW!!!

Tell us who the manufacturer is and we'll blockade their factory. Nobody gets to leave the building until they come up with the goods.

I’ve spoken to ITG, a few delays since the contact I had left ITG for pastures new. So, there is a possibility of an ITG kit for the Evora, both S and NA.   The main difference is the silicone elbo

How about buying a kit from you and the filter from ITG?

I know you're on hols Lee - when you get back, would be very keen to hear if you've had any luck with this

Update:

Hi Lee

 

Sorry I haven’t been in the office much.

 

We are currently inundated with requests to create new kits, I have enough to keep me busy for the next year.  The decision as to which kits we develop is largely based on a commitment from distributors to purchase certain quantities.  While we have developed kits based on forum interest in the past we are often left with only a handful committing to having a kit. I really need to get some commitment from our distributors before starting on this kit.  

Best regards,

So basically we need to get a supplier onsite, someone like Seriously Lotus, EliseShop etc.

i really thought they'd be keen to help, they have been in the past and there is certainly a market for v6 NA and S.

Well, I'm sure these suppliers read this site, so, it would be good for them to pipe up and take control. Bet they won't though.

I'd like this thing to happen, but it just looks like it won't and so the options remain BOE or KomoTec. If i go down this route I think the option for me, is to wait a couple of extra months, buy less beer, and use the money i save to buy the KT carbon CAI over the BOE. The KomoTec product has been well tested after all and they have shown a great commitment to develop perormance options for the Evora platform tat I believe we should try to support.

As for the other thing - it really is not my place to divulge on this as the info I got I was told to keep to myself - and if it is NOT going to happen, well, it's not worth knowing anyway. The suppliers involved are definitely on here, so, when the time is right, i am sure they will share info on why not, or, hell yes it is coming.

 

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

It's too bad that the other thing is stalled, since 2 of the 3 pieces of the puzzle are already finished.

Just reading and now resurrecting this old thread... did anything come of this?

Pretty keen to fit a CAI to my Evora N/A!

The OEM intake an airbox looks very restrictive!! 

Cheers, Pete :>)

No. Unfortunately, ITG require the purchaser to commit to a minimum number of units (50, is it?) That’s quite a lot of cash to have potentially sitting on a shelf. 

Komotec (via Hangar111), ES Motorsports (in Norfolk) and Lir Racing (in France) all produce intakes based on an ITG filter.

BOE CAI is the only retail option as far as I am aware and it makes a big difference....

 

What you really need is a friend or friendly forum member who goes to the US to pick one up for you.

Nope. You can get them much closer to home:

"Komotec (via Hangar111), ES Motorsports (in Norfolk) and Lir Racing (in France) all produce intakes based on other filters. "

Komotec listed as for the S only, not the NA.  If it does work with the NA then great but nearly twice the price!

ES, I was talking to yesterday, mentioned that they had a kit but didn't seem to be that well advertised, not sure if the car needs to go there but no doubt they would be very helpful if you ask them.

Lir, couldn't seen anything on their website, anyone have any experience of their solution?

150??!?

Is that a typo? ;)

Should be 15bhp i believe.

From speaking to Dave at hangar 111 the KT carbon cai works well on the NA too, not just the S.

Need. No.

Benefit from one. Possibly.

If you change the headers and use a CAI then I think you need a remap to really see the benefit but could then be looking at 310/315/320 bhp which is about same power to weight as an S without all the extra weight - if that makes sense.
