    Actually. The side winkers could take a long time to fit. My winkers are so stuck it's not funny.
    I've given up the idea of removing and tinting them but will jump right on it again when I get myself some white nismo ones

    Did you read the review on filters posted by nicely (above)?? Does yours let that much junk though? If you get a chance do you know how thick the foam on your filter is??
    Was only messing bout the hole half hour thing. Its kinda a sayin i have. Meant nothing disrespectful bout it. Jes i didn't realise the hks lets in so much crap. The foam is about 2-3mm thick i would say. Mines looks clean but i dunno maybe its actually dirty.??

    This comparison test may be of interest.
    I'd be interested to see how it compares to the JWT filter - I've decided to sell my HKS and have ordered a "POP charger" as replacement - I run 2 of them on my Z32.

    I ran the HKS for about 3-6 months. It can be washed very easily as its only a thin sheet of foam. I washed the foam before I sold it on and it was filthy. Just take the front mesh off and look at the difference between the exposed and hidden parts of the foam...

    Like I said, the only one anywhere near that bad is the Blitz SUS. It relies solely on a metal mesh to filter dirt.... A tea strainer would probably be more effective. Oh, but it looks and sound the nuts... Shame your turbo will exploded when a small cat is sucked through...

    Weather permitting, they'l be fitted saturday morning! I'll give her a wash and post some pics. I'll also post some pics of the coilovers on the car, should have really taken some photos of them compared to the ones i took off but it was snowing and i'd lost feeling in my feet, didnt want to hang around and take photos!
    So the general recomendation is the Apexi?? does it pull air though the outside and the hole through the centre??
    HKS 3mm thick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No wonder why it lets so much through!
    I'l take mine apart and post some pics...

    That cone hole is blocked. It sucks through all the fins on the side.

    Yep, i was ordering some EL2 gauges but they didnt have the boost in stock, and couldnt get it coz they had gone bankrupt. They said if i waited a few weeks they could check other companies stock and get me one.
    So if anyone is looking for a powef fc better try and find one know!
