    Yes, Obviously it depends how much they are out in the first place. But tbh, remap and matched inlets, are quite noticeable.

    Best 2 mods i have done! (Apart from stripping it!)

    I have matched inlets with PTFE Gaskets, ITG Panel Filter with no acoustic valve and uprated air feeds, Full stainless stealth exhaust system with decat and a Grp N Ecu Remap with 7800rpm rev limit and i certainly notice the difference.

    It seems to pull and pull

    There def worth the 's

    Go for it

    Re: matched inlets

    What about Clio 197?

    2 of my friends have matched inlets and they claim there's no difference, especially noticable difference...

    I was thinking about doing it anyway...but I don't want to throw 230 for nothing...

    Re: matched inlets

    You would only notice the difference with matched inlets if your manifold isn't RS stamped as they were poorly cast but the RS stamped ones were alot better. You may get an extra 1hp out of a RS stamped one.

    But to quote Tesco "Every little helps"

    If you've got the money to splash out on the placebo effect for peace of mind then do it.

    Re: matched inlets

    it was 182s that had the RS stamped ones.

    Matched inlets do appear to work on 1*2s

    One tuner claimed massive gains on 197, but then it all went very quiet...

    Re: matched inlets

    197 inlet don't need of matching between upper and low section.

    But 'cause you say about 197 inlet, i've managed to install 197 inlet to 182 engine.
    Huge diffrence between lower inlet to cylinder head.
    Here are some images
    182 head and 197 gasket


    new holes must be drilled left and right of the inlet on 197 gasket


    working to...


    allmost ready. Little notch at the upper middle of inlet is made to clear the way of injector spray. (new position of injectors)

    Re: matched inlets

    surely getting the head CNC'd would be better mate. Full rebuild etc. You don't really want to get swarf in the seals etc.
