Quick question for the floor, has anyone had any issues with open cone induction kits as it seems that a lot of people are running with closed ones?
Have heard that when it is open it can cause issues, any truth in this?
Cheers

Had you been running it without the recirc valve before at some point?

I've heard people running mid range power maps complain that the car can run too lean, I think group A comes more in to it's own at higher power outputs.

I don't use one myself but they sound mega :mf_dribble:

Cause at the moment I'm split between mountune induction or going down the k&n group a route. Bare in mind I'm running 350.

I had group a filter when running stage 1, thought it was good then fancied a change. Put the closed filter back on with k and n filter inside and it drove so much smoother and better bottom end torque. The group a sounded good but ran pretty **** now that I had drove with a different filter

Ran one on mine for a bit when it was stage 2 and it ran horrid. Lost a load of torque and grunt low down with a big flatspot in the middle of the rev range.

Sounded the muts nuts though!

Running group A on mountune 375. No issues at all. Just recently got cold air feed so looking forward to put that on when I have time

There are plenty of discussions about this in the technical sections James.

Most tunes and options have been covered so it may stop you wasting your money. :nice:

My car has some form of filter cone (looks like a K&N with a plastic cover) in a modified standard airbox from what I can gather, but there's no cold air feed into the filter cone area.

It was until I was accelerating beside another RS that I felt that the car was lacking oomph, so I'm going to rip that out and order an AS carbon induction kit to replace it.

Would I need to get the car remapped to suit this? It's currently on a Revo Stage 4 tune.

Went from Mountune Airbox + K&N X-stream to running a "grpA" K&N with dry sock.

No issues and the sounds are addictive. Reminds me of when I ran a cone filter on my old RS Turbo :smile:

No mate no changes to the map needed, the ECU will take a while to adapt but you wont need to do anything
