Induction specialist Pipercross has released a revolutionary new design to turn the induction kit market on its head!
Their new Venom induction uses groundbreaking new construction and material choices to give their best ever air-flow yet in a sealed intake design. This latest kit comes complete with constant-diameter flexible ducting and all adapters needed for a quick and easy fitment. The filter inside is easily removable for cleaning and maintenance while the ingenious ‘click-together’ design makes for light weight. Essential for track and race applications.
The Venom has a massive 100mm open neck to allow maximum cold airflow though into the filter within. As well as being shielded from engine bay heat soak by the air-tight conical outer, the filter inside has a significantly larger surface area than any other sealed induction kit on the market. This increased airflow means more power, more torque and ultimately, more throttle response through each gear.
Initially, tuner’s favourites such as the EP3 Civic Type R, Mk4 Golf, Clio 172/182 and Mark 4/5 Astra will be the first to market. With many more to follow later in the year. As well as precision moulded ABS bodies, a genuine autoclaved Carbon Fibre edition will also soon be released. As well as these tailored kits, a universal fitment is also available.
Prices start at just £119.99 for the ABS unit, rising to £179.99 for the full Carbon version. The Venom will be available from Ripspeed branches of Halfords and all good motor accessory store.

Induction maestros Pipercross have released details of their latest range of competition-spec filters.
The hugely diverse range has been designed to offer a variety of solutions for race teams, car preparation outfits and specialist car builders. Over 40 different combinations of neck and filter diameter are available ranging from 50 – 146mm necks with a choice of 5 filter sizes from 100 to 300mm.
Not only are the range of sizes vast, to accommodate almost every possible application, space or airflow, but also cover varying construction types including foam top, alloy caged and straight walled. All use a precision moulded rubber neck to allow for quick and easy fitment to any circular mating surface. Best of all, they’re all made entirely here in the UK.
As well as increased flow characteristics, all Pipercross filters can actually filter down to a much finer rate than factory filters, preventing any foreign particles from harming the engine, extending its serviceable life. This same construction means that the filter can also go longer between service intervals than even leading cotton-gauze filters, before needing to be cleaned.
Despite these impressive abilities, all Pipercross filters come with a lifetime warranty and can be easily cleaned again and again for re-use, providing decades of faithful service and paying for themselves many times over – and that’s before you start factoring in the significant performance benefits.
Perfect as an upgrade for an existing induction kit, or for those looking for a bespoke solution. Basically, if you need a specialist filter – this range should cover it. Prices start at just £27.99 and rise to £56.99.

Performance filtration specialists Pipercross have added yet another core tuner car to their 3,000-strong model portfolio; The EP3 Honda Civic Type R.
The rev-happy hot hatch has now entered the realm of true affordability, making it one of the most popular bases for tuners everywhere. The combination of Honda’s bomb-proof VTEC lump and its impeccable road manners means that the EP3 is a competent all-rounder on road or track.
Being a high-output, normally aspirated engine, the Type R really responds well to breathing modifications, with a panel filter and exhaust upgrade often being the first improvements that owners make. The Pipercross filter is designed to be an exact replacement for the rather asthmatic factory paper filter and uses multiple foam layers to allow up to 30% more air flow through to the engine, improving power, torque and drivability over the stock set-up. Best of all, it’s made here in good old Blighty!
As well as increased flow rate, thanks to its unique (and patented) multi-laminated open cell polyurethane foam construction, the Pipercross upgrade can actually filter down to a much finer rate than the OEM part, preventing any foreign particles from entering the induction tract, meaning even greater protection for the Civic’s engine. This same construction means that the filter can also go longer between service intervals than even leading cotton-gauze filters, before needing to be cleaned.
Best of all, despite these impressive abilities, the Pipercross filter comes with a lifetime warranty and can be easily cleaned again and again for re-use, providing decades of faithful service and paying for themselves many times over.
The price is a credit crunching £34.11. Bearing in mind that it’s the only one you’ll ever need – what are you waiting for?
