    pannel filter Q

    Iv'e got a SRI turbo which is about 230bhp previous owner said it had a courtney pannel filter but when i was changing the induction pipe today i noticed it was just a standard paper one, would it be a good idea to purchase a courtney pannel filter because i would imagine the standard one is really restrictive.

    cheers

    I'm getting a replacment panel filter, either k 'n' n or courtenay when I do the 1.9 or 2.2 airbox mod.

    It won't do it any harm allowing it to breathe better but don't think you wil notice any performance improvments.

    wont do any harm to change it, you will notice a slight increase in induction noise

    Just noticed you got 1.9 setup m8, can you hear the turbo spool more with this setup?

    Certainly can mate, I lurve the sound especially whe tootling along at thirty in third and accelerating up to fifty (which I do legally as we have a residential road that turns into a duel caaridgeway)

    edit - I have a K&N panel filter in my 1.9 box

    Which is better 1.9 or 2.2? Differences in sound/performance/price?
