    derestricting airbox on 1.4

    Does anyone know if derestricting the airbox and fitting veccy c pipe etc. will make any difference on a 1.4 engine? I've bought all the parts and just wondered if it was really worth doing!

    For the time and effort involved - about an hour out of your life and 2 scrapped knuckles - then yes it is
