Well despite the arm still being in cast I got me shirt off and my beer belly out on Saturday and fitted the EVO CAI, perfect fit, looks the biz, sounds great "stationary" but I didn't realize the DV wooosh was going to be as loud when you change gear!!! arrrggghhh..... just not the sound I'm looking for at my age!, gutted as after giving the car a good shoeing it does make a noticalble difference, the enging definatly feels livelier lower down, but it was off the car and back in it box with all fittings and going into Classifieds at some point today![:(!]

And to rub salt in the wound the Fed Ex tax bill turned up this morning! 28 quid! Hmmmm Monday...[:(]

and if Glen doesn't want it, please let me know mate [:)]

ps sorry to hear you don't like it as it does give a noticeable power increase. Know what you mean about the dump vlave whoosh......it's a love/hate thing.

I've combined my Evo with a blow off valve.......all down to whatever flicks your switches [:D]

the noise the carbionio makes its the same its a loud whoosh of air when caining it and a noticeable fluttering noise when plodding along. saying that this is with my car being revo'd and with the SPS3 being turned up to maximum boost its even louder! The only thing is a still have the standard dv on my golf and it doesnt hold on to noise for as long as an after market! sometimes i think why i have i made my car sound like this,other times i think its good as you don't get many turbo's making such a noise![:D]

if you like a nice throaty sound that's not too loud (begins from about 1800 revs) then this is the bad boy for you guys.......definate increase in power, especially on the motorway.

I'm trying not to say it sucks like a ........ but seriously it does, the noise of the air being sucked up the carbon pipe is also good for confusing the passengers [:D]

Fitted an evo to my PD150 at the weekend, yes you get a whoosh, I don`t particularly like it but the result is worth it, [}:)] much smoother and the engine sounds better.
