Hi Guys,

im new here so im needing a little advice,looking at buying the HKS RSK as it seems to be the best you can buy for the fn2 as far as price and gains go, but i have seen the kit installed on other cars mazda's etc... and i have noticed that the kits are normally facing the front or situated where they get airflow, yet with the FN2 it sits facing the back of the engine?

can anyone explain how this can possibly work?

cheers

It works as even though its not getting a direct cold air feed it can take more air in due to the big filter on it and therefore can help produce more power.

Loxy has ran a cold air feed to his and installed a heat shield made by tdi to try and keep the temperatures down

yeah i can see the filter will be able to suck in more air but how will it actually suck in more air if none is getting to it? i think loxy has the right idea defo need to somehow increase the airflow that gets to it in order to optomise

Air will always get into the engine bay so it will always be able to get air in but it might not be the coldest it can be

You get a cold air feed from the original pipework from the stock filter which points to the filter

You will get very little from that if any tbh. It draws air in from the wing and then goes through a resonator box so unless there is something sealed to the end of it creating suction I doubt you will get anything from it

Best combination of the two IMO is Gruppe M mate ;)

HKS performs well on the dyno with the hood up but on the road gains are better from the closed boxes however you get far less noise from them :( maybe HKS/heat shield and better cold air feed (scoop from front fog) would be a good combination

Yeah gruppe m is a shout but I've heard they're a nightmare to fit cos u have to customise the feed from the bonnet and 9/10 u damage the paint work doing so,if that's true then i ain't interested I want hassle free like everyone haha, I want a beasting noise and slight gain on the road and for it to look the **** ,(damn mugen for they're stupidly priced air box or it'd be mine )

LOL! Who told you that? I ran with the Gruppe M for ages, good bit f kit, only thing you need to do is remove the sound deadening from under the bonnet and the weather strip at the front of the bonnet and that's it mate :)

Get the tegiwa intake if your really wanting the Mugen same thing, 1/3 of the price ;) if your ever thru in Glasgow mate give me a shout and you can see my set up ;)

Go for Tegiwa mate, better gains than the hks, bit more expensive but worth it, for gains that's where it's at :)
Why would one of these give any better gains than the custom mod in the link?
