  • ITG question?

    hi all

    hope u all had a good xmas n hopefully a good new year!

    just got a quick question, had my car put back to standard the other day, so the maps are off and the exhaust is off! but i left the itg filter in and i have never driven it without the exhaust when the filter has been in, so when i came to drive it, it sounds really different to when i originally got it when it was bog standard with the paper filter. sounds like i have a dump valve, well not tht loud but there is a deffinate wooooosh from within the engine, does the ITG produce this noise? or is it a pipe blown off etc?

    Help appreciated

    Yes mate perfectly normal, well it is on my corsa. You can also hear the turbo spooling up too. Mine is standard apart from the ITG panel filter too.

    Hope this helps you out?

        Is this the same with the Courtenay panel filter?

          Sorry mate I couldn't comment on that as I have only just bought the VXR brand new and only just put the ITG on.

            Was it the worry that Elephant didn't know about the mods Brett? After all that time getting the Milltek to fit right! Are you going to wait a while then get the mods put back on then?

                You'll get that buzz again when the new bits are fitted if you leave it standard for a bit.

                  The design of the ITG gives a better airflow over a standard paper filter which will usually give you louder induction noises and a quicker turbo spool up

                        Best to check that the small pipe aint blown off sat the back as well, as i had the whooshing, turbo spooling noise when i had my ITG filter and thort it was normal but checked the pip anyway and it was hanging off, so re-attached and the whooshing has gone now.
