Upcoming Events for the Next 14 Day(s)
rival for the ITG
well as ive said on my blog ive been waiting over a year for the development of the old ktec induction kit which fell through due to the lack of the airbox from renault.
over the last few mounths ktec have been working on a new cheaper alternative which i have personally eagly awaiting and constantly keeping in touch with ktec regards this.
last they told me is it should be out very soon feb time.
the info they gave me is it would make gains of 13bhp on a standard car and would fit unlike the old one with the standard battery in place.
there is some pics come up on their blog which im 99% sure is the proter type of this kit.
im yet to get a price back from david, but thought id share it with you sure ktec wont mind as knw a lot of you are after the ITG.
"KTR Megane 2 RS induction kit.
Following Renault's decision to stop producing the very effective Espace V6 air box we have had to hault the development of our long awaited induction kit.
However, we have been testing a much simpler kit which will replace the standard factory air box, without the need to change the battery. We intend to use an open foam air filter complete with custom alloy inlet elbow which will fit into a cut down standard or silicone air inlet pipe. The kit is also supplied with a heatshield and fitting kit and early testing has seen gains of 13bhp on a completely standard car.
More testing will take place in January when we have a fully finished prototype to test.
Thats all for now, we hope some of these parts will be of interest next year.
they also have a cage on the way for you 250/265 lot.
good to the 250 mods growing.
above info from their page

Reason: miss post
Some time this year I will be developing my own for less than 50% of the ITG Price
It may work and offer good gains but for what you get, its not worth the 300+ price tag IMO
thats why im waiting on a ktec price, as 300 is a lot, to be honest you could do both kits DIY really, might have a play with both set ups, the ktec looks eaisy to copy, just need to get the metal pipeing fabriacted.
So the filter is located in the engine bay still, where the air box used to be.
I would do the same but unfortunately I don't have the time!

HERC - Thanks for the offer, I should honour the group buy now though. The trickiest bit will be the battery and ECU.
cernatinly looks that way, but nothing is that offical yet as there still testing it.

This is exactly how we have done our's and it works perfect, tested on track, road and the dyno with no issues. It's not like we don't have intercooler at the front of the car......
