hope you havent got a cone filter. if so take it off sell it and buy a panel filter. cone filters only help you car to kangroo down the road and cause problems with the MAF cos of all the hot air.

Im still looking out for a cold air feed aswell.

TUT TUT. Cones are only good when

a)used on turbo engines
b)placed behind an hole,such as a removed morrette lense

Get loads of ducting from B&Q to bring the air from under the bumper up into the bay

i have heard that washing machine ducting is good as because its so big it fits over the cone filter as draws in much more cold air.

Th eonly other option is to make a custom heatsheild. or you could if you had the time and money make a custom pipe that moves the filter close to the front of the bumper and then goes down closer to the floor so it gets the cold air not the air in the engine bay. but it involves custom pipework

U have to watch out for water too.U dont want water to splash onto the cone,altho it may not get thru (cos of the oil on the cone) its the risk of engine damage if is does get in thats bad.Washing machine ducting from the bottom of the bumper to over the cone is a good idea. But at the end of the day. Panel filters are the way to go on N/A cars

Scoop nobody is saying there great and nobody is saying they are crap. on some cars its all about the noise like on my 106. it sounded cool. and had a direct cold feed to it but only on one side. however that sat right on top of the carb.

A filter is good if it sat right behind the front bumper and only gets cold air. but then again they would get covered in shit.

I have seen people put cone filters in side a standard airbox. cos it is proven that a cone filter CAN give a bhp gain if fitted and used correctly.

This doesnt always apply and mainly its only on large engined cars or big bhp. if it wasnt the case everyone could have K&n or pipercross of false advertising if it didnt give a gain. but they are covered by saying it gave a gain on the one we used. it diesnt emply it will work on every car.

i say if johnny is happy with it who are we to argue. its personal choice at the end of the day.

Plus the poor lad only asked if anyone had some cold air feed and a heatsheild and its become a full blown debate if cone filters are good or bad.


Random rant over.
