    Default EP intake pipe first thoughts

    Just fitted an EP intake pipe (standard airbox & filter)

    Did not expect any gains or losses.

    However I noticed slightly slower turbo spool but car had smoother power delivery and was about 7km faster than usual between 3rd-4th gear change.

    Am I dreaming???

    Yes.

    Placebo or just getting the benefit of the cold weather IMO.

    People say you won't notice an extra 10bhp when tuning so you're definately not going to notice something like a pipe thats almost the same as standard

    No not placebo. I said that I think that boost is slower to spool
