Even if you do get software, you have to still keep the MAF parameters stock, unless it's a software company that can actually do MAF scaling.

I know Finsport in the UK spent months developing their intake for the new Fezz. The key was to keep the MAF airflow parameters stock, whilst still obtaining gains.

Bro, ive done the decat and down pipe with the lamda sensor and its running well now.Can i just buy a normal cone filter and put it on? I cant find anything on the web, and i dont want to use motorcade again after a bad first experience.

If you just put on a cone, your car will go into limp mode.

Howzit thechad510 if you dont wanna buy an intake and all you want is the dumping sound you can make one very easily. It will cost you less than a grand and the most expensive part being the cone filter itself. PM me your number and I'll tell you exactly how to do it

DIY not recommended because the FiST is very fussy with regards to mods, especially intake. Rather look at an ITG intake or Karter intake.

As Good as the China Mall or East Rand Trader Simota Filter Sounds, it unfortunately will not work.

Good luck with this. Nice to see the determination.
Just some advice from my side, buy one that is tried and tested and it'll cost you less in your development fees if you eventually get it all right.

People think intakes are quick and easy to make yet they aren't. There is theory and calculations behind it all with a bunch of testing done. As drifter said, some companies take months to get it right.

Hi Guys

Thanks for the replies, I agree - just wanted to give this a bash as the prices of intakes on this car are abit steep.
