    whack on the old air box - derestrict it and pop in an aftermarket panel filter. that should resolve it.

    Failing that - just get a decent enclosed jobbie - well shielded from the heatsoak (the cda is expensive for a reason)

    Either way u go get a decent cold air feed- either a veccy c pipe or modify one to make it bigger.

    in terms of bang for your buck in performance...de-restrict plus veccy C is the way forward buttttt I can't deny that the induction roar is a luvly sound!

    dunno if i could justify £150 for a bmc cda just for the sound though...plus its not as loud as a K&N

    I have one of those evo sport induction kit with vectra c pipes and works just as good as de restriced box, and the internals of the evo sport and bmc bear little visal difference, I would suspect the bmc would have better filtration.

    I brought one to clear my bonnet vent ha my standard deresticted box wouldnt clear
