    Induction help

    Thinking about buying a bmc dia kit and before buying it I wanted to double check if it will be fine for my car?
    It will be sitting next to an x20xev..
    Ive been told it will be fine but after having a look on the bmc site it says for cars upto 1600cc? I just dont want to be loosing power. Im not expecting any gains over my derestricted box I mainly want it for the 'roar' plus the looks over the standard box.

    All help appreciated

    apart from it looking better than a big chunky airbox, does it give any more power than a derestricted box and panel filter?

    Gotta admit they do look great in the bay.
    How do you mean, a Ffoeg special veccy pipe?

    Think I may save up and get me one does anythind need modifying to make it fit? or is it just unbolt airbox, jubilee clip pipes to the bmc and job done?

    Dont suppose you know anything about the dia? Just that its not a bad price, 4x cheaper than the bmc.
