    Inductors kit

    Would an inductor kit be any good in a
    1.4 sxi mk5 would it give it more performance
    or just noise??

    instead of the engine sucking in fresh air from outside, when you put in a cone filter it sucks in warm air from around the engine bay. Warmer air = Less HP.

    So you would actually loose performance.

    In a mk4 astra the best option is a k&n panel filter and would probably be the same for a mk5
    Astra Sold! Now its back! Sold Again! Who knows whats going on!

    Currently Running MK1 1.8 MX5 with LSD awaiting boost, and a Red UK DC2

    a sealed kit should give your throttle response a nice boost. But a good one costs well over £100

    so as said a new pannel filter, veccy c pipe and maybe take the pipes out your airbox
