    my first mod ?!?!?!?!

    just been reading thru the site and i was reading up on de-restricting the air box, seems fairly easy to do, is there anything else i will need to de when i do this ?

    or should i just hold fire just now and get an induction kit ?

    will i be able to de-restric it and also get an induction kit ?

    dont know shit about moding cars !!!

    If your derestricting it then you'll need a panel filter for the box.

    de-restrict it and contact pvd and order a panel filter from them

    this would make a good start

    stay away from induction kits unless its just noise you are after

    If you are after more bhp then de- restricting the air box and puting a performance panel filter would be the better option, if you have 250 notes spare then go for a piper x viper induction kit, as this a completly sealed unit and should see better gains than a de restricted airbox, If you want lots of noise a nice looking item under the engine bay, and some times lower performance then go for a induction kit.

    It all comes down to what you want from your car and what your doing with it. Are you modding to improve the drivabilty of your car, or do you want to grab attention, these factors will determine your choice.

    hello mate welcome to the site


    now this thread will prob start a huge argument

    well u carn't do both

    an induction kitt will give u a good roar from the engine, where as the air box mod will not

    what people say is that the induction kitt takes in too much hot air from the engine bay, personnal what i do is have the induction kitt on in the winter and put my airbox back in the summer as i can feel the lag when i put my foot down,

    anyway hope i helped

    if u have any other questions ask away

    btw what car do u drive
