Default Big thanks to Mike

I would just like to say a big thankyou to Mike for fitting my carbon airbox.

Mike wasn't lying when he said these are the loudest airbox out of the Karb, Evolve and GSR it is insane the sound it makes

Had a 220 mile drive to get to Mike and it was fitted in super quick time and I am over the moon with it. It may not look the best cosmetically but it does the job

The drive to Mikes got me a steady 30mpg but the drive back seen me into the low 20's as you would expect

It was a great week to run the car after 14 months of it being in storage especially combining the new airbox with my new Ksport BBK and all new suspension.

Sadly the car is now back in storage but I can't wait until September to hear that airbox again.

Thanks Mike

Was from a german supplier, same place as Mike got his from but mine is the newer design and fitted easier Mike said compared to his.

It was Empower's old one and I think they shot up in price too or they may not even do them anymore.

Let's just say whoever buys my car with it fitted will not be dissapointed
