The standard air filter is a naff paper thing, fitting a BMC really transforms the car...

Quite possibly the best £40 you can spend :thumb:

    Or better yet strip out the restrictive OEM air box and fit a Forge Motorsport cone filter.

    Yea the Standard with the Evo is just a normal air filter, I changed to the BMC one and WOW what I difference, its a lot thinner so breathes much better and gives you the best turbo chatter, really awesome.

    Has anybody tried our Light Weight Pulley on their APE yet? Factory is 3.5lbs and ours is 1.5lbs. Gets rid of some of the lag, and will give you a few extra ponies

    Anybody running straight pipes on their APE? Same engine we have in our Abarth, and the sound is amazing.

    I don't really want to claim HP gains, because I haven't put a car on the dyno to test this one part by itself. However the reports we get back from the Fiat and Dodge Dart (same engine) is what really sells the product over here. We knew it would help with the engine, but customers are calling us and telling us how much of a difference it made, they swear they can FEEL the difference. With any luck, once somebody on here gets one, everybody will!

    Maybe there is some way we can do a group buy to save on shipping, but we'd have to ship them all to the same place

    £170 give or take a few pennies...

    $240 for the pulley plus $50 shipping.

    What car do you have ?  The pulley has been designed to the Multiair (so APE in this country).  I've read in a few places that the T-jet and Multiair engines share a common block but there's no guarantee that it'll be the same.
