Fitted together with IL Motorsport twin exhaust. Great combination, eye-catching looks and seriously head-turning sound once you get this fitted.
Just one problem with this bit of kit. The old rubber seal on the Management System was way too big to fit into the mouth of the filter, in fact it was so much too big I thought I might have bought the wrong filter for the car - interestingly the box says PK107 and the model number at the top of this page says PK107B.... Anyway like another reviewer I had to bodge it significantly with a stanley knife. This isn't ideal because it's impossible to cut it down uniformly so you can't guarantee the seal. I'm going to sort this out by finding a replacement seal but it would have been nice if either Pipercross had provided one or told me to go and buy one before I started fitting it. Don't like the idea of silicone as one reviewer suggests, sounds messy?
Bit of advice - start peeling the black protective film off the heatshield at the bottom where you bolt it to the body but don't peel it off completely until the last possible moment that way the filter will be nice and clean and shiny.
