Re: Big holes in resonator

This is the Punto HGT GSR intake. I dont see why it will not fit the Barchetta but best to check with him.

FYI: He will not sell the intake pipe without the filter so dont ask.

Re: Big holes in resonator

The Green filter on a new style B intake system.

You can get two types of Green filter for the B so make sure you get the correct one for your car.

Loads of info can be found on the forum about thsi filter. LRB has one if you have any questions about whats good and bad about it.

Re: Big holes in resonator

I had my CDA fitted like the Docs first fitting (with the battery in it's normal place), but it was a large size one (Ooh err Mrs). I've now done a bit of re-plumbing and it seem slightly better.

I've got some pictures (I posted them in another thread) of how BMC did it, but you need the new style throttle body to do it their way.

Re: Big holes in resonator

My one off OTT intake system.

The best engine sound was from the Green filter but the best for cold fast moving air is my one off intake.

Re: Big holes in resonator

The Green sounds excellent, the sound at 3.5k rpm onwards is awesome! The Green can suffer from drawing in hot air under the bonnet but I have wrapped the exhaust and top hose - to be honest I have not suffered from drawing in hot air at all............

I am talking/working with Peter at GSR on a bespoke induction kit for the b, it is based on the Punto kit but will need modifying, it works on the same principal as the CDA as its a fully enclosed system but the intake pipe will be created to fit the b under the bonnet.

I do like the CDA system, does not quite give the same throaty rasp as the Green system but being fully enclosed should not suffer from hot air issues........

Mind you, if I remember rightly the Doc and myself went for a bit of an enthusiastic drive through the Bedfordshire countryside last year and both cars seemed evenly matched.............can't wait for the summer again!!!

Re: Big holes in resonator

Ok, thanks for answears.
I think I would go with that b gsr kit in future if possible. If I can get any to Finland

But what about these greenwister things and similars? are they crap or..?

btw, I asked about that bigger BMC carbon kit from one finnish supplier and he said that its for over 160hp motors, and price was nice 299e...

Not sure about the green twister kits but if you want something shipping to Finland from the UK I am happy to do it for you if you wire me the money for shipping...........

The standard Green filter kit is good, its easy to fit and not too expensive - you would also love the sound!!

Re: Big holes in resonator

Difficult to say for sure but looks to me like you have the external Air Flow Meter model. Is there a metal unit that looks like this on the end of the plastic tube that bends down the front of the engine? If so its got the external air flow meter........

Yeah, I think I would go with that BMC kit. Seems that it would fit to b with battery on its own place, and I can get it from Finland..
And there is nice offer on one local suplier..
Have to wait for payday..

On BMC's website there are these testing reports, seems like it really gives couple more hp's..

Re: Big holes in resonator

Good news, just as a matter of interest how much are they in Finland? Cost about £150-£180ish in the UK

Re: Big holes in resonator

Beware, you can't fit it like that (as shown on the BMC web site) if you've got the mass air sensor in it's own section of metal pipe.

You have to point it downwards and then have a pipe leading to the front to scoop up the nice cold air :-)
