Took my car up the strip today.

1st time since I fitted the induction kit and have lost 1/2 a second on the 1/4 mile.

Car was serviced last week and a new Battery installed.

Re-set the ECU after half-a-dozen runs and it made no difference so it will be coming off tomorrow.

I even took out my golf clubs and spare wheel (which I ran with the last time) :blush: to lighten the load.

15.88 is still my best time. Anyone else got any times for a MkII 300 sport?

Remember that although an induction kit may allow the engine to draw more air.....unless it is effectively shielded/insulated then the chances are that it will be drawing more HOT air. HOT air = reduced performance.

Do you have a picture you can post up of your intake install?

I had a similar problem on my IS300 but cured it with a DIY heat shield and insulation.

Yeah mate.....there's a pic on Maneesh's thread on his kit.

I have installed a shield at the cone but guess it's just not good enough. It's a bit tight for space but as I've said elsewhere, it sounded worse, so was always a bit skeptical about it's ability.

Take a look at these pics.....the material is insulating foil from B&Q. Ultimately I wrapped the entire intake pipe with the foil to really finish the job off.

Looking good there Mike.

Do you feel it's improved the performance or maybe RR figures to confirm.

Before i made this mod the previous RR numbers were:

196rwhp / 195lbft trq
