    Always go for enclosed induction kits as this will prevent hot air from the engine being inducted. Try to avoid using filters with oil on them (K&N and the likes) as the oil tends to coat the AFM (air flow meter) and that'll set you back £90 or so to replace. TBH its been said that you'll get better performance from using a standard filter but changed regulary (every 5k). But you may want to consider de-restricting the airbox and installing a Vectra C diesel air intake at the front. Its been covered loads so do a search.

    welcome to the site!

    The open induction kit thing has been discussed heaps of times wirth some people swearing by them and others poo pooing them.

    Use the search function or have a look in the Zlet engine section and see what peeps say.

    Personally i would say if you do a lot of urban or stop/start driving then forget it, get an enclosed filter kit or a good panel filter.But if most of your motoring takes place on the open road then give it a try coz under these conditions I don't believe the heatsoak to be as big a problem as many people would have you believe, especially if you get a good cold air feed to it.

    Just my opinion.

    Welcome to the site, as said this has been discussed to death. A closed system will be better for the car and most importantly better for power. Here is my air filter

    Be Happy

    It's small, probably about 40% the size. The part number is 33-2159. It is standard fit for one of the small VW cars I think. I clean it every 10k miles (3.5 months) and it's filthy then
