    Ye loose the cone 4 starters bud,just sucks in the heat of the engine.....shite!!! lol.

    Ye u either wanna get a BMC or a Pipercross Viper type enclosed filter (theres other options out there) or for a cheaper option u could de-restrict the standard airbox,fit a Vecci C air intake & a performance pannel filter such as K&N,Ppercross etc... .

    Iv been on the phone 2 a Vauxhall specialist garage this morning & i asked this & he said No.

    I have drilled & de-restricted airbox,K&N pannel,Vecci C air intake,Blue flame custom made cat-back system,Lexmaul 4 branch manifold & Lexmaul 100cell de-cat & the bloke reckoned a remap would be good for an extra 20bhp on top of them mods!

    The Lexmaul manifold & de-cat have made a HUGE difference!! .

    Cams & Re-map next!
