« on: August 12, 2014, 12:16:50 am »
Anyone have the induction kit off the TMC website if so is it worth it or just buy a BMC filter?

    Sure there is a Black one that has been to the Ace on regular occasions which has the Forge one and a Forge BOV as well.

    Is it Stealth?! Can't remember his name off top of my head, but if you like a lot of turbo flutter and dump valve noises then going for both times is what your need.

    There is always some debate about if the flutter noise which is compressed air coming back through the turbo is actually harmful to the turbo or not but even with the BMC panel filter the Punto's make a little bit of turbo flutter, some thing us 500 owners don't really seem to get

    Not sure what to go for really!

    BMC panel filter
    The TMC induction kit
    K&N induction kit
    Or a BMC induction

    Decisions decisions! £40 or £140+ ::)

    The gsr kit seems to look quite promising. I had one of theirs on an hgt punto and it was top class. I'd like to try one first before buying. It's an entire silicone pipe that goes from turbo to filter that drops the filter down into the wheel arch area. Makes sense

    The wheel arch area has a lot of access to damp cold air, the vents on the bumper are functional - I don't think I'd fancy my chances with an exposed filter down there..

    Now if you wanted to run a cold air feed up from that area then that's a different story :-)
