    Apexi and a 007 will sound sweet! Good effort on the heatshield too. Looking forward to the pics.

    Apexi seem to be coming on strong! I reckon if I was an open cone person I'd be swung towards one of these

    finished the heat shield did it black as it didnt polish up well and put a red trim around it got it fitted and the apexi it sounds nice can hear the dv through the filter,

    also fitted a new set of plugs i fitted ngk iridium heat 7 as recormended car feels more responsive and runs smoother now,

    next im goin to get a bigger hose to replace the standard air intake pipe and route it up from the bumper to help get abit more air to the filter, then order a forge 007 and a 3in tip

    heres some pic of the apexi fitted

    Nice motor :) I like the platinum ones, would have gotten one if I couldn't have found a red one.

    Quick one about your Apexi filter - mind if I ask where you got it? My Jetex cone is looking pretty sorry for itself so want to try an Apexi as a replacement.

    Apexi filters are one of the best out there for flow and filtration.

    Excellent choice.
