The importance of installing your intake properly!

So ever since I made my mr 5 style intake I found out I never installed it back on properly! the stock airbox wasn't fully connected to the hose.

So last week end I was doing my regular check up on my meth setup and notice this.

Man didn't realise how much difference it made, the car feels like a new car again, the power down low is so much better and the hesitation that I was feeling before is now gone!

anyway morale of the story is to make sure you guys install your intake properly and not be a retard like me!

Guess that makes me a retard too. I've done that also. Always in a hurry to get the car back on the road after fiddling with it.

So you have the Mr 5 Intake... Nice work Rey. Best intake by far IMO.

I'll cop this on the chin guys I am very slack. Thanks for reminding me about the extinguisher bracket Paul. I need to buy myself a fire extinguisher that fits. Also forgot about the Mr 5 intake until I saw this thread too. Ive got a busy week but if someone could bump this thread in about a week from now so I remember that would be great!

All good! Still think it's one of the harder things I've installed on this car
