    Induction Kit or No Induction Kit

    Need some help peeps,

    I drive a 2003 1.6 16v Zafira and would like to know what is going to benefit me more. De-Restricting my airbox and fitting the veccy c pipe and an aftermarket performance panel filter. OR, fitting an induction kit.

    Best to stick to proven formulas on this one.

    1) Either de-restrict with performance panel filter

    or

    2) Fully enclosed induction kit with suitable cold air feed


    The standard open type cone filters will more than likely result in power loss - depends what you're after really - that lovely induction sound or a relatively small increase in performance.

    Personally though Id go for one of the first 2 options....the first will only cost about £50 tops whereas enclosed ind kits are rather pricey so maybe the cheap option is the best all round.

    This is perhaps the most discussed theory on the entire site - a quick search will bring up all the info u need.

    Only u can ultimately decide what u prefer though.

    HTH - Keep us posted

    If it was me, i would de restrict the air box and fit a decent panel filter.
