Car going in to be mapped, What Air Filter?

Hi Guys, As many may have read recently i have a few issues with car going into limp mode once driven really hard, everything been checked and seems as if car just needs remapped as my X 300 SST has an aftermarket exhaust, hard pipe kit and an aluminium hard pipe intake pipe on standard air box with standard filter.

As car is going in for mapping by Russ Paton I'm going to fit an air filter or full induction kit and possibly a VTA blow off valve and have it mapped to suit.

What's everyone's thoughts on Drop in panel filter upgrades or full induction kits pros and cons. I like the extra noise of the induction roar and turbo whine of induction kits, but also like idea of having the airbox for cold air feed etc of the panel filter, but then its really quiet.

P.S. i don't have hundreds to spend on a top of the range kit, but i will at some stage. Was thinking of buying a cheaper ebay induction kit to have it mapped with then in a few months funds will allow me to buy something like K&N Typhoon and because its already been mapped it should just be a straight swap over.

I originally had a similar set up. A k&n filter in my standard airbox. After switching to an induction kit from ETS and being mapped again it picked up over 30whp and 35wtq. Everything else was the same.

It depends on your boost pressures and how much power you're making. The more you're making, the more restrictive the standard box will become.

Wow, that's a big difference. Was it the only mod? Did you keep the MAF? On what car?

That's some amazing gains shift down, my car already had after marker exhaust unsure of make as not been under car yet and tail pipes not stamped. In has full intercooler hard pipe kit including turbo intake also so decent filter onto that and I've essentially got a full induction kit. Will be mapping in a mac 3 port boost solenoid also.

I was running the car mapped at 315whp-ish and 327wtq for about 2 months and on the advice of my tuner, switched to a full suction kit from ETS. Now the car is at 345whp/357wtq.

This is exactly what I'm using now. I had the factory intake tube and factory airbox.

Still running the factory MAF.

Make sure you don't starve your car for fuel either. my factory 560cc's were tapped out at 315whp and I dropped in some FIC1050's and a AEM320 to be sure. Gives me some headroom to elevate in the future.

They shouldn't be maxed at that power unless running E85 or too rich.

A faulty maf was running it rich on my tune before the fic1050's. luckily an evo8 is a direct replacement for my old V MAF runs like a top.

I get a LOT of sound out of my ETS intake. The recirculating BOV sounds like it vents to atmosphere. Lots of turbo choo choo spooling noises too.
