    can we have a bit more info mate i.e what mark, model and age of car you have and the full engine code etc. the more info we have; the better answer you get.

    if they are the same size then i presume there would be no difference in fitting a different one ie getting more fuel and air in ???

    If they are the same size then no gains would be made from you fitting one from a 2.0 for example
