    Nice car, but was it worth it? Less than 7bhp.

    AMS website quotes +20 bhp gains.

    Unless modern ECU can adapt to such increase in air, the car may need a remap to fully benefit from the new intake.

    Or AMS overstated the gains.

    The ECU may adapt but, when I fitted my intakes, I had it mapped by Big Fish @ MSL. No noticeable gains, but so much smoother. :thumb:

    They wouldn't do that would they. :eek:

    Oh, hang on...

    They will probably have some disclaimer in the small print saying that "up to 20bhp extra will be gained provided that" and then give a long list of extra conditions.

    Mine was installed as a gateway to my next mods, so not too bothered about the lack of improvement initially, looking at long term stuff really, and an intake is usually a good start.

    Would rather spend the money on a tuning box or map, or have some have said the first stage of a more comprehensive tuning package.

    On its own 7bhp is not a great selling story

    I can't think of anybody ever fitting an induction kit for gains, it's mainly the sound people want

    My first car, an XR3i the first thing I did was fit a K&N and how it roared! Absolutely no difference in power but it was worth the £80 odd quid
