    Also im going for a veccy c pipe, does anyone have a part number for this?

    All going in a Z16XE 1.6 16v 2001

    I went for 'other'...

    Go for a standard filter and replace it more often (3-5k) - the filtration of the Foam and Wire mesh filters has been found to be a lot poorer with next to no improvement in the performance. Put it this way, you'll get more of an improvement from the veccy pipe than changing the filter, whatever the manufacturers say.
