The Prolex one does seem to be well routed, not going over the exhaust manifold or the top of the engine.

Only way to go IMHO

heat rises so can't see point of the others........

where mine ends up as well is well away from the radiator another source of heat :whistling:

yh i got them fine looks pretty easy to fit and i was wondering wot power increase does the induction kit make

Not a lot TBH. No one has ever done a before & after dyno.

I know of one bespoke kit fitted to Zee's IS which lost power (over exhaust type)

Sounds lovely though :whistling:

An article in one of the French tuners mag a few months ago did a side by side comparison on induction kits, they tested about 8 kits, with dyno results and the only kit to make a blind bit of difference on a Clio was the K&N replacement filter and something called a "Vortex induction kit". Both gave 2-4hp gain over the standard air filter, the rest gave no gain or a loss (I think one lost 6HP!!!). I think the Clio was pushing 160BHP at the time, so similar to the IS200.

But you can't tar all induction kits with the same brush, I am sure it would make a larger difference with forced induction.
