the engine sucks the air mate not the filter,tis normal now go enjoy!!
I know,what i meant is that is really really noisy,of course with the standard shut filter couldn't hear anything but with this filter exposed make's a hell of a difference.:D

Probably about the same. I thought the Apexi was louder than the HKS that was on mine before but R33Stu made the same swap on his and reckons it is the other way round. I am deaf in one ear though :(

You can get the Apexi induction kit quite cheap from Apex Performance (Bren) compared to other induction systems such as HKS and Blitz. I bought one from him for a friend of mine and Bren did a perfect service and good price delivered to Germany.

See that´s me, I buy one for a friend of mine and me myself am still running the crap HKS one :crazy: But i can tell you that the noise the HKS one makes is unbeatable! :D

Yeah from Apex Performance i wanted to buy mine,but i Pm'd Bren and they are out of stock,hence why i bought this one,i didn't hear a HKS one probably it is,but my Apex'i on the car makea a hell of a suction noise.
