    Biggest Airbox to fit in a 1.8

    as above, im wanting to get a bigger air box if possible, but wanting to fit a induction cone inside, to it keeps the noise, and reduces the Heat Soak

    Thanks

    fair enough


    but whats the biggest size that will fit in, becuase the bigger it is, the more room there is for the induction kit, and less chopping the box down?

    not really something anyone will know seeing as all mk4 airboxes are identical except the 2.2

    you're gonna have to get inventive if u wanna try another manufacturers box

    personally i dont see the point of such a mod - either ind kit or air box - not both - youll probs cancel out any increase in noise by fitting it inside the box - why not just a run of the mill heatshield?

    didnt know they were all the same, i know what you are saying chap, i just think induction kit's are ugly, i much rather have the air box, but i just like the noise they make, unlike a air box.

    I thought if i connected a kit inside the Airbox, it would echo in the box and make the noise, but maybe not, id still like to fit a bigger air box even without an induction kit, to hopefully increase the air flow.

    Do you reckon something like the Omega or Vectra air box's are bigger and might fit?

    Cones make the noise they do becuse they are open to the air and not in a box - if you stick a box round one all you are effective doing is making a slightly different version of a standard setup
