    which is better?

    I have a 2006 astra 1.4 16v and i want a bit of a note out of it. I was looking at the K&N induction kit 57i for the astra, but after a bit of research i have seen that alot of people are sticking with the standard air box, de-restricting it and putting in a K&N pannel fillter. i am not realy intreseted in preformance at this stage. its really just for the sound. could any one tell me which one has a better sound thanks.

    The induction kit by a long way. The air box method doesn't really add much noise but does make the car run better.
    Previous Astras: 1994 Cesaro 1.8 16v | 2002 SXi 1.6 16v | 2001 Coupé 2.0 Turbo | 1999 LS 1.6 16v
    Other Vauxhalls: 2001 Vectra 1.8 16v| 2003 Vectra GSi 3.2 V6 | 2005 Signum CDTi 150

    My thoughts exactly. If you just want noise get an induction kit

    Induction kit is definitely the way to go if more noise is what you're after
