Scoop In

Right,

A lot of controversy about the whole GruppeM thing - So what's the deal with the ScoopIn setup sold by DrivenCrazy?

I'm guessing with the way it's based your getting noise + gains (however small they may be)? or are you still loosing HP like normal open cone systems.

noise is class on it..i sold mine to alan off the site along with the K&N apollo kit and the sucking noise is immense..he has that and a dastek remap and getting over 230bhp..so no signs of losing power there...

its a nice combo!

Has anybody got a price on this yet? Reading up, it looks like the stock induction and exhaust works fine

sounds good to me,with a mappable one,is there anyway to lower the vtec and extend the revs? or is that impossible as it piggy backs original ecu?
also if a perfect map is done on the mappable unit,wont that give better gains than hondata,as i read in earlier threads that hondata only gives a few bhp,
so is it a case of same vtec limits but more bhp and torque across the range vs hondata which is earlier vtec and later rev limit(if im making sense)
also the price comparison makes a big diff to me to

Fitted my scoopin the other day along with HKS hybrid panel filter.
I'm very happy , good fit and nice induction sound. The engine feels smoother and more responsive at low revs, and wilder in VTEC.

Two thumbs up.

Yip, got from Joel @ http://www.drivencrazy.com.sg

Cost was $220 delivered. (Group-buy would bring down shipping about $10 per scoop)

Very difficult to fit if you don't know what you're doing like me, but lots of fun though.

@ CTR-ZAR: I think it would complement your BMC filter well, I have an HKS filter with mine.


Here's mine fitted

ive just fitted a panel filter also, and im interested in one of these.
Does it just fit straight in?
is there anything that has to be done that might void the warranty?
thanks

i dont like open cone air filter inductions because of the loud noise.
thinking of putting on this scoopin with stock airbox and a Κ&Ν panel filter.
does anyone try that combination?
how is the noise without the stock resonator? is it loud like open inductions?
And what about gains with flashpro remmaping?
any help is much appreciated!!
