How many miles, and in what conditions do your drive?Does anyone have any suggestions on how often the V2 intake filter should be cleaned? I seem to remember EC stating 2 years but that seems a little long. Mine has been on the car for 1yr & 6,000km. By looking through the intake it still looks clean but its hard to gauge as it has the water repellent sock covering.
Is this intake improving the turbo lag, engine response ?
Some wrote that it somehow improves the engine response but the extra noise may influence this feedback.
So: Is the engine more responsive (less turbo lag) or is just the extra noise that make users to believe this?
I receive my V2 intake today, and since I don't want to touch the car, or should
I say- SHOULDNT touch the car because I'd probably break something- I'll be having it installed at my favorite Alfa 4C shop here in SoCal, Madness Autoworks in Signal Hill, on Tuesday. Can't wait to see/hear the difference. I've contemplated all the extra hoses and things like that- but between my Madness exhaust, EC Phase 2 tune, and now the EC V2 intake, I think that's it for any performance upgrades on this car for me.
Do you have a picture of it on the car? i found a few but they all show the engine without the alfa cover. Is that just because it was done after the install or is that how it will be?You will not have any issues, it was tested pretty heavily here and we have never had any issues or concerns. It also sits up a bit higher than the stock induction system.
