Great bit of kit! Received as a Christmas present and fitted in less than 2 hours to my mk2.5 2002 Montana.
The MX5 filter is easy to remove and replace with the K&N. It is also held firmly and securely. The ram air scoop and ducting a little less so. The tolerance between the aircon pump is small but eventually was fine with the use of the zip ties and a small amount of squishing. The instructions do not really say much about the inspection door. I folded this back on itself and zip tied it inside the front bumper. Worked well and does not rattle at all.
Noise is the first difference noted - great on acceleration - particularly around the 4k mark. The next is performance. It feels perkier all round. Slightly better throttle response but a good tweak on the 3-4.5k Rev range.
Highly recommended for the price!
