    Putting a cone filter in will give you the chatter you are looking for but it could reduce power slightly on hot days due to heatsoak.

    Personally I'd be tempted to install a BMC panel filter as instead in the Supersport and Esseesse.  Plus you shouldn't have any warranty or insurance issues :)

    The Forge motorsport cone filter is a great piece of kit. However its expensive and could mess up your warranty.

    Yes a bmc filter will give you a slight turbo chatter but an induction kit from forge or k&n really gives you the best chatter, much louder! :)

    Not the best video in the world but it gives you an idea..  I couldn't find my fluffy MIC so had to record using the built-in one, which is a bit pants :thumbd:

    Thanks for all your inputs. Out of interest what k&n iduction kit do you buy?
     Thanks for posting the vid exhuast sounds great but cant hear allot from the turbo. I have heard ones with a louder sound, suppose that is from an induction kit. If i use an induction kit and the car goes wrong i can just put the standard back on for warranty? Or will they know  ::)

    I'll see if I can do another video when I get home, the engine was quite cold this morning and the chatter gets better with temperature :thumb:

    I dont see how the dealer would know if you had an induction kit fitted. However if you break down you will need the car towing home then later towing to the dealer. Its a lot of messing around but its your call. Personally I would just wait for the warranty to end. I would also advise the Forge item over the K&N as it has a heat shield.
