Just installed the Fswerks RMM insert

Installed friday and drove the SE around all weekend.

Cons -

- some shudder in reverse
- throttle is more touchy

Pros -

- Better acceleration from a dead stop
- much quicker / snappier downshifts

Those were my initial impressions friday night. After driving all around sat and sunday I can honestly say I feel like the insert provides more of a "felt power" increase than the k&n / snorkel delete. It literally feels like I somehow added 10 - 15hp. The car is much peppier around town now. Pretty mind blowing for the $13 spent on amazon.



edit: I should add, the only time the car vibrates in reverse is backing into my garage and my driveway is on an incline. Backing into a flat parking spot is mostly fine.

It should really be stickied IMO. "This is the first thing you need to do to your SE!"

Not bad at all! Just a few bolts, took about 30 minutes.

Been running it for about two years on my 14 and wow does it make a difference. Only thing that sucks is the added cabin noise. Other than that best cheap upgrade you can do

I've only noticed vibration/noise when idling in park.

I just went with the newer updated one. (E-RMM) It's a still pretty cheap upgrade for the older MK3's.
