    It wouldn't waste it, but you would use more of it compared to a standard airbox.

    **This would probably only be for a 1.6/1.4 and not be the same for any car with an AFM (2.0T 1.8 1.2)

    it could also harm performance when it starts soaking up warm air from the engine. Best off getting a K&N panel and de-restricting asim

    A51M what size engine you got ? if you got a 2.2 i recommend not doing the panel filter and airbox mods as its a bleeder to fit and looks a little squashed up in the engine bay
