    airbox derestriction - help

    just removed the two pipes and took the car for a spin, dont think it made much difference, is there any way that it can be made louder?? made a small difference performance wise, if i want a large rip do i need to add a cone of some description??

    any help will be appreciated.

    cheers

    add a performance filter and a veccy c intake pipe <---- cheap, easy to do, and gives better gains than an induction kit, unless you go for the BMC induction kit.

    The astra engine bay gets so hot that an open cone induction kit can actually reduce the performance.

    i found that when i put pipercross induction kit on my 1.6 sxi i goes so much better than the derstricting and pvd filter and veccy pipe plus you get the nice induction roar as well

    I think the thing about the astra engine bay getting too hot is only on the bigger engines ie 2.0, 2.2 and turbo

    just my opinion
    Balck Astra K Elite 1.4 Turbo

    If the veccy pipe doesn't work, can you put the old one back on?

    It won't come out after taking out the two screws and clips, as you have to lever the pipe off the bracket... anyone replaced the original pipe?

    The Veccy pipe will work - there are many people runnig this setup with no ill affeats reported.

    However, if yioy want to revert, it can be done but not without a fight.
