    Panel Filter Poll

    I've de-restricted my airbox, and drilled five holes in the base of the airbox together with an extra cold air feed. More grunt now together with induction roar. All I need now to finish the job is a panel filter. There are three types I have in mind. Which ones do you think is best.

    Cheers.

    I've ordered a PiperCross Panel Filter for my turbo @ £36
    I've heard in the past that PiperCross filters work best on Vauxhalls that any other filter.
    Yes it really is a 1.3!!

    I always gor for K&N. Just personal preference I think. They all give similar power gains IMO.
