Love this build!
Great job buddy
Haha yeh i get linked on facebook from mates etc... I keep seeinf a speed blue mk2 leon on the roads atm, not sure if its you but its around the bracknell area?
Cheers guys for the comments
Yeh was awesome matey, good to put a face to the name and car. Ahhh its alright know what shows are like and the weather didnt help as I had planned to bring chairs and a bbq along to socialise round etc... ahhh well will probably meet you again at another show this year.
Haha not sure about that as there was some awesome cars there. I loved the new wheels yours was sitting on been looking to get another set of wheels now after seeing so many i liked at the show haha.
Well ended up on ebay late at night and bought an induction kit for the hell of it.
Managed to adapt and fit it today and i have to say the change in engine noise and how loud it is now is awesome. For the money spent on the kit id happily pay it just for the throaty sound with no performance change.
Can't comment on if it changes mpg or anything yet but i will report back.
Got some bits to tidy up and some more pipework to sort but this is how it stands.
Inlet size I can confirm is 2.5" or 63mm for anyone interested.
You got links for the stuff that you bought?
I'm doing the same at the moment as won couple small bits cheap online can't beat custom lol ....
What did you do about the breather pipe?
Yep thats the link to the kit, however they sent it with a black pipe instead of the blue and also without that fan thing. Was surposed to be there but they have been sent the kits without them so i got some money back before they changed the ad.
Also got a dress up kit from sfs which is where the other pipes have come from.
Mega cheap kit but does need adapting slightly to fit the inlet were you just cut one of the silicone hoses in half slot inside the end of the black air duct pipe and then clamp.
ANyway will report back once ive used it some more.
Its currently just pointing through the bay as have a filter coming tomorrow for it. will be ok for one day And then to measure and get some custom pipework made up!
Yeah will be ok some people don't put anything on it lol
Yeh i was tempted by a catch can to fill some more space and have some more shiney engine bits but maybe in the future
I had a catch can I was going to use for same reason but sold it to a mate he needed one asap
Right well I got contacted from another mag for a feature on the car :thumbsup:

Got to say a huge thanks to Christian Jones & Global Flight Solutions for the awesome location and hospitality. And then a massive thanks to Adam Cooper & Dan Hughes For the camera magic.

Well as some of you know my mk5 had a photoshoot for a mag feature in Modified Xtreme mag.
Just thought id post up some of the results and a link to the facebook page for Adam Cooper Photography as he has some serious skill with a camera which i think you all will agree with.
Amazing shots, you should be very proud Tom!
My only regret for my car is not going for this colour.
