    Done the air box mod 2day

    I took all the gubbins out of my air box a while back and went to R Tec today and got the panel filter. Put it all in and took her for a spin and i goto say i didnt exspect that much of an improvment but the car was much quicker. I might try making the air feed pipe bigger as the next step.
    Will this mod increase the fuel consumption much?.

    Only seems to be people with normally aspirated cars that rate the derestriction mod, not convinced myself.

    What panel filter did you get mate? a lot of us use PVD's foam based one

    The K&N cone tbh aint that much good on a 16v G coz the engine bay is soo cramped it just sucks hot air in from the engine & makes it run quite rough in teh summer & when sitting in traffic
