    I recently asked in here about fitting an induction kit to my 1.6 sxi, and the general response was dont, people reccommended doing the TDi airbox mods and then fitting a panel filter

    hello

    i had a piper cross, fitted to my 1.6 sport, and it made it hell lot better and sound better but when hot it was , driving hard it killed the engine, so i would advise a cold intake like the viper cross ,

    open cone filter aint the best on the vauxhalls as they have very high under bonnet temps compaired to others so they get alot of heat soak. A cold air feed wil help but it still aint the best.

    most people derestrict the air box and use a pannel filter, k&n, piperx, courtenay etc and this seems to be one of the better options.
