Noise is nice but my exhaust noise drowns it out quite a lot. Makes the car a bit lumpy at low speed but in map 3 at higher speed it seems to have a positive effect. Would love an Agency power one to try out and compare.

Yes fitted it myself. Pop the top of the box off and remove the filter. Undo the torx screw to the left and use that to fit the BMS fitting - you can also pop a socket on if you don't have torx. Unscrew the sensor off the standard airbox and attach to the BMS. Pop the intake on. Takes five mins and is super easy.
I highly recommend popping the driver side grill and taking the little cover off that's on the left hand side. Made a difference for me.

It just unclips, increases airflow and although you wouldn't think it would do much, I've found it certainly has a positive effect

Popped the intake on today , simple enough , did you angle yours down slightly into the air box ? Looks a little deeper in the box than mine
