have you seen where the kits place the cone, right above the gearbox.

if i was you measure the maf sensor and just buy a cone instead of wastin money on the kit.

Placebo? or not placebo? that is the question. Pipercross viper is a wise investment mate (if one day u plan on 2.0 it) but whatever u get make sure u get it a fantasic air feed and sheid it from heat,or you WILL lose power. Havent u got a swiss cheese airbox yet? cos one of them and a panel filter is pretty good

K&N spend thousands on development programmes to ensure the K&N will increase the performance of the vehicle.

They have a 4 wheel rolling road facility to proove the output figures and for developing extra BHP & Torque.

So i doubt if simply fitting a cone will produce the extra horses as a branded filter kits would......

You get what you pay for, pay pennies and recieve trash !

i ment use a K&N filter not a Maxpower type.

with some heat wrap around the plastic inlet and a good air feed i think it would work better.

For god's sake, please don't get a cone filter. Get a K&N panel filter and stick it in your air box, and then go to work with a drill (2cm holes) on the side of the box opposit the manifold.

I agree with both CLJ and miek, if u dont get a closed carbon airbox,such as viper of the BMC CDA,then simply get the panel and swiss cheese ur airbox, swiss cheesing ur airbox gives the same increase in throttle response,and thats the only part of the swap that you WILL NOTICE if u fitted a 57i or similar,well,same as u've got now, changing from what u've got to a K&N wont make any diff IMO. Its a good idea to insulate the inlet air from heat tho, so partitioning ur engine way with something to keep the heat away from the filter would be a good idea,and then find a way to keep the heat out of the plastic pipe that goes over the rocker

BTW,enough red in ur engine bay???add a bit of chrome matey

bmc carbon gets my thumbs up, noticable difference but not that stupid noise of an open cone.

also no bogging down as you dont get the heatsoak from the engine bay.
