No, unfortunately you cant be tight when buying for the Type R, go for at least a HKS RSK... Prob best with a Tegiwa/Mugen intake (500 ballpark)

There was a thread recently where someone was having problems with a cheap kit. Not sure if it was a pipercross or not.

Go for a HKS or CPL if you're after noise, or a Mugen or Tegiwa if you're after gains.

+1 again, I forgot about the CPL, some heppy users of that here!

Just another point, I switched from the HKS to the Mugen in my old FN2 and found the HKS was definately better than stock, then the Mugen with scoop was quite alot better than the HKS! I was personally quite happy though as I had a Mugen car which had a matching intake etc....

I've got one fitted. I thought it would be a good idea as it has a heat shield and uses the bottom half of the airbox for cold air. I will probably change it for the hks at some point tho. I've never had any problems with the pipercross but you can tell its not the best quality. Mine is purely for noise
