KTR Clio B Rs 172/182 Induction Kit
After many hours of dyno testing we now have our new KTR induction kit available. The kit is available to fit all Clio B RS models including the 172 and 182 versions (inc Cup and Trophy) and is available with a choice of silicone hose colour. The hose colours available are black, blue, red, yellow, white and orange with light green and purple available as special order.
The idea of the kit came about after we had a spell of many different cars on the dyno with various induction kits fitted. Most of the time these were losing power and in every case we tried our prototype induction kit and the car gained power right across the rev range, even compared to all the best "other" kits out there. It wasn't until we were happy with the final design that we put the kit into production. The kit includes our high flow air filter with a tapered spun alloy inlet funnel which is covered by a special foam which has a dust catching polymer already applied, giving an almost "dry to touch" feel. This foam covers a stainless steel frame which makes up the shape of the filter. Our custom inlet hose is wire reinforced for extra strength, to prevent any form of hose collapse and this is held in place using the brackets and clips supplied. Full fitting instructions are also supplied and the complete installation is a simple DIY job which should not take more than 30 minutes.
On the rolling road we have seen consistantly good gains with the kit fitted to standard cars and even higher gains when fitted to remapped cars and those fitted with cams. In the graph you can see the gains achieved by fitting the kit to a standard engine which already had a high flow panel filter fitted. No other modifcations were made to the car, only the air filter was changed.
Please note the kit will not fit cars fitted with an oversized battery, it is designed to work with the standard sized battery.

Unsure of the power gains until remapping next week but feels much smoother & seems to pull better, most of all the noise sells it !!

Great instructions, if you can't understand them you shouldn't be under the bonnet of your car. Performance gain is brilliant, so much smoother and has a great deep tone.

Fantastic piece of kit! Well worth the buy! The noise is tremendous above 2k RPM. Below that, its quiet and sophisticated. Easy to fit, 30 minute job. Literally been smiling ear to ear since it's been on. Cannot fault the quality of the kit, and the instructions are very easy to follow, even for a total nonce like me. Would recommend, a must have!

I got this along with the remap and KTR Ultra Performance 182 Exhaust System so was a double whammy! I've have this for just over 3 weeks now and have fallen back in love with my car all over again! When you drive it civilized :-) no one even bats an eyelid but when you put your foot down even at low revs it growls like a bad chewbacca! The pull is crazy in every gear. After having my baby for over 5 years any difference is noticeable but this is significant. Would recommend this to anyone looking to get more from the 182. Great product guys!! Another happy customer
