      May sound trivial and this isn't trying to make you look silly but is it in the right way as it don't look it but it's rectangular.

      Or ignoring that, do you mean that the lid doesn't sit as snug on top? Mine didn't when o had it in if that is what you mean?

          panel filter is on fine, correct postition and everything. measured it against thetold one and its the same size. it just seems to need a bit of hard work to get the lid shut as easy as when the original was on.

            I find the courtenay ones a bugger to fit , the left side (as you stand in front of bonnet looking at it) was a bloody nightmare i found to get to sit in plush.,
            irc when i had an itg it was a lot easier to fit. i think the rubber rim is a lot more chunky on the courts one
            what you got mate?

                got the pipercross one....i have adapted to it, kinda forced the lid on top and screwed it on. think the rubber seals are rather large which is why its a problem so i applied a bit of pressure lol.

                    The filter is fine, so is the seal so everything's all good.

                    Can anyone tell me why my car is now making a slight wooosh when I take my foot of the accelerator?? how can putting this filter made it louder?

                          The swoosh noise is the recirculating valve dumping boost back into the turbo.
                          Awesome noise, like a dump valve.
                          You'll grow to love the noise.

                          Enjoy it.

                            I am enjoying it, if I change the recirc valve to a better one will I have a louder woosh

                              Yeah and there's one for sale for less than half price brand new in the for sale section

                              Will kill your warranty though mate.
