I am familiar with the CSL sound and had a few pax laps around The Ring in a CSL in June and, therefore to compare, I would say that the Evolve CF airbox is a bit "fruitier" in sound and Woots (Adam) will not be disappointed with it. The car started perfectly from cold with perfect idle and the car runs smoothly throughout the full rev range.

This is the most accurate representation of our airbox that I have heard on video.

It is very hard to capture. Woots is on a test drive now so he will be like this

Pm'd.

The price is in the first post. Existing Evolve-R customers can take away the amount they paid us for the tune.

Can you please give us an approximate idea of the time to allow for DIY installation? Also, would it be prone to any wear if removed and re-installed several times?

I would say about 2 hours. The production pieces are lacquered pre-preg carbon and are hard wearing/robust. If you are careful there should not be any issues.

noticed that the test fit is using standard hose clamps on the 6 intake runners.
Is this normal for the production as well, or do you use something a little more like the OE Oetiker clamps?

This piece looks absolutely amazing, it would be nice to have clamps that suit

The production kit will have the same clamps.

Is there a choice in lacquer finish?
matte / gloss?

Stopped off on route to visit a friend and then got stuck in horrendous traffic!

I will write a full initial review tomorrow so I do a proper job...

But expect the words 'epic' 'immense' and 'aggressive as hell' to feature in the write up

Seriously evolve, this kit is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!

Can we use OEM clamps instead of your hose clamps?
