First of all i just want to point out what a load of gash the origianl corsa airfilter system is, when taking the original filter off i noticed there is a pipe going to the back wall of the grill where there is....nothing. It just sits behind the grill where there is a wall of plastic, i know original airfilters are suppose to be restrictive but, come on.
I am fitting it tomorrow when im free to do so, but today i prepared my car for the new filter and also fitted some rather nice indictor bulbs... enjoy!
Dropped the bumper:

New Indicator bulbs:

New hole above grill for dbilas system:

The hole is rough but i will smooth it 2moz with a file when i fit the new filter, will get pics up and comments on performance change (if any) tomorrow morning...

Comments Welcome:doublethumbs:

i havnt had it on a RR yet but as standard with 90bhp i would expect max 5bhp without a remap. Im getting a performance inlet manifold soon and will remap it with all my mods on. Ill let you know 2moz when i go for a drive about.

The filter isnt loose but its secure as the bracket supplied is for a z14xe and mines a z14xep so if any1 knows where the bracket can be bent to or have pictures of urs fastened with a twinport engine, let me know. Yeh ill get a few vids up:doublethumbs:

Yeh there is a noticable difference on throttle response, alot better and as far as performance goes it pulls better at high speed like on the motorway and A roads. Well chuffed with it:yippe:

looks mint!

i already have the inlet manifold from dbilas
next week i'm going to dbilas for the flowmaster to be fitted and a remap
estimated 120Hp should come of it and 135Nm (89hp; 120Nm original)

not a bad way to spend 2000€

Is the inlet manifold all you have for that gain? Or you got any other mods?
