Where did you get this info about it hitting the bonnet? Is there another forum for this inlet? To bad this page has gone quiet, not much info on setups and numbers.

Planning to go with an standalone ECU (ECU Masters EMU Black) to get the mapping perfect, should run great with a custom GGR CAIS!

You say great bit of kit "for the money". The way i see it it makes more power than the Mountune inlet or am i looking at it wrong?



I think it makes more torque lower down but a bit less power, end of day all engines and sets up are different and will make random powers v other same set ups, I've no idea what mine makes all I know is, that is it is faster and pulls harder than previous MP165 and MP185, pulls well from very low speed in 2nd or 3rd when dawdling and seems to cope with similar cars of similar power either side of 200bhp when having a bit of traffic lights fun. So am very happy with it, should be 196bhp and 210nm but it wouldn't bother me if it made less than that on rollers, upset a new Golf GTI yesterday when I gapped him in 2nd at 7200rpm, he wasn't happy !!!

Haha that's great to hear, love these moments in our sublime little cars! Allready had a lot of fun with an M3, CLA AMG and a Mini JCW (193bhp), nog saying i was faster than the M3 and AMG but we had proper fun and both gave me a thumbs up afterwards cool AND i was faster than the Mini, it's my mate's and we did multiple runs so the Pumaspeed 190+ kit must be close to the claimed power.

Matt told me it would be OK to drive with the inlet without a remap for a while but that i would need to be carefull cause between 3- and 4000rpm it runs lean, is this with the original map or also with the Pumaspeed 190 map?

The reason i ask is that between installing the inlet and coming to the UK for a remap i need to install the GGR CAIS but since i need the ST this will be spread over multiple sessions (fabricating, measuring, ordering the needed parts, waiting for the ordered parts... smile ), so will it hurt the engine running without a dedicated remap or should i avoid running it?

I really don't know, I guess others may have done the same as you whilst awaiting mapping etc so best ask them or Jimmy, bottom line would be drive it but never thrash it or long drives at high speed, so urban 30mph would be fine and you would never go above 3000rpm anyway.

Mine was mapped for cams before I fitted the inlet, I ran it like that for a few months before having it mapped again, but didn't go over 5k and tried not to floor it, easier said than done though lol

Haha i get it, drive it like a baby untill i get the mapping sorted. And yeah, easier said then done indeed! smile

Great news, i've been in contact with the official ECU Masters distributor for Belgium and the Netherlands (JT Performance, situated in the Netherlands) and they are also able to do the same as Jamsport (EMU Black, plug & play, mounting, mapping) for the same price as Jamsport so that saves me a trip to the UK.

If everything goes well it should be done in September.

Thanks again for all the info, you guys have been very helpfull!

Another question for the experts:

Which size throttle body should i use? I'm currentle running the original and have the 60mm ready to go.

Matt told me the inlet is designed around the original TB but i noticed that the few mapped cars being discussed here run the 60mm TB.

And since Mountune uses the 60mm TB with there inlet and the FF inlet is designed around the MT inlet i'm kinda confused.

Most of us are using a 60mm but I don't think it's necessary, I can't tell any difference between the two.

Ok thx. I'll mount the original and maybe take the 60mm with me when they are going to install the EMU Black, since it's live mapping it should be easy and interesting to test the difference between them.
