Blitz induction kit

Post by Will66 » Sun Nov 04, 2007 2:26 pm

The scourge of too much beer and a credit card on the internet has struck and I have ordered a Blitz induction kit. Hopefully I will have it for the weekend and will get it fitted over next weekend. I'll let people know how it goes.

I had hoped to fit it this weekend. Except it hasn't arrived. Buggerit! As soon as I fit it I'll photo and video it so you can see and hear it.

Blitz induction kit now fitted. It's nice, the only problem is the fitting instructions are in Japanese. And I need to fit a rubber rubbing strip to stop it vibrating on the heat shield. I don't think it is making much difference in power but the noise is exceptional, a loud snarling bark. Video and pictures will follow.

Photo of the Blitz kit fitted. Apologies for poor quality phone picture. However it's this or waiting ages for a nice pic. And I don't like to keep you people waiting.

It's made it loud, full throttle at high revs is viciously loud. The power and performance seems to be much the same. It's is still fine at part throttle, full throttle at any revs makes it growl louder than stock. It's nice.
