    K&N air filter more noise?

    i was thinking of putting a k & N pannel filter on my gsi to try to give the engine a bit more noise, because i can only just here the engine at the mo.

    will it a pannel replacement make any extra noise? some one told me it would?

    Induction kits sound nasty on turbo's.

    Panel filter will give you a bit more of a whistling noise, but it won't give any extra roar

    I had a 57i on mine. Was on the car for less than 4 weeks. It made a really loud turbo whistle sound when on part throttle made the car sound like a jet, and turbo flutter was louder than the engine, exhaust and stereo combined

    It did sound good though between 2k and 4k when on full throttle. Cons outweighed the pros though, it drove better once the airbox was put back in as well.

    I fitted a k&n panel filter and fitted large intake pipes and removed the small pipes from the air box. There is a bit more noise from the engine and the turbo noise is louder!!!!
