Ive had 3 set ups on mine so far.
1. the orginal air filter and box.
2. Apexi power intake and aluminium induction box
3. Back to orginal airbox with Apexi panel filter

Apexi power intake was probably the best step up, lovely roar off it and a bit more responsive, a bit more sluggish when accelerating in a higher gear. They say to get the most from it you should use if with an Apexi Neo so you can tweak the air/fuel ratio to account for the extra air coming in.( Im selling my induction kit)

the Apexi panel gives a better response than the standard filter and only a slight grumble when u put the foot down.

you can try couture auto in Dunboyne thats where i got mine, not the cheapest u can get it for but quickest way.

As far as i know the induction box is no longer being made so u might not be able to get that too easily

Induction kit cost 170 from Couture and You can get it for 115 from Nengun.com

U should reset your ECU when u make any airfow mods or if you change to using normal unleaded to unleaded with octane booster or something similiar!

so just follow your instructions on resetting the ecu then when ever i change something?? i was running on oct boost to see the diff from just using unleaded95 oct should i reset the ecu for this, the car running ok but there is a diff in take off without the boost going to replace the plugs and give her the full service soon to see if that changes anything. Did anyone change the fuel filter on the rs200 yet?

The main benefit of resettin the ecu is that it allows the ecu to adjust quicker to the new setup. as far as i know it will still adjust if you dont reset the ecu it just takes longer. Havent heard anyone talking about changing fuel filter. Why do you wanna do that?

Changing the ecu makes a massive difference straight away! I drove my car after puttin in the induction kit and it was kinda the same really if not even a bit slower, after resetting the ecu there was an immediate difference, the engine ticked over at a lower rev and the top end rev was better... i believe anyway for any intake/exhaust adjustment resettin the ecu,

as for the fuel filter, is there any need to change it that often???

Sure its a cheap thing to change and if it gives peace of mind sure why not.
