cheers roy its weird as ive already had the k&n on it for long enough,but when i took the old tbh off there is a channeled grove on the upper inlet manifold where the gasket sits against the grove has three slots and these were blocked so i cleaned it up put it all back together,took it for a spin the throttle is much more responsive the grunt even louder and you just need to touch the pedal and your off at some rate and i can feel the secondries opening up more noticably now.and the the lower end acceleration has improved massively delighted with it,and better late than never lol

ahhh no.... its one of the thick ones with holes drilled in it. I have a carbon cover and it doesn't fit so I imagine its the wrong one for you too.

the air temp sensor plugs into the back of the k&n,as the k&n has the hole pre made for it.theres still enough play on the loom with the extra length of pipes

Chers Paul..just wondered if there was a hole in the Ally pipe bit..my K&N doesnt have a hole..it is the ST200 one (exact same kit but no hole and longer air duct)

you could either drill a hole in the silicone pipe or back of filter,but when the air temp sensor is back of the filter the multi plug sits tight againt the gasket

Thats what i have done to get it fitted, drilled hole in the base of the filter..not a good fit or seal tho..thats why i would prefer to make a new hole in the ally tube when i get one.
