    air filter mk 4

    im going to give the astra a service and im wondering whether its worth replacing the standard air filter with a k & n panel filter designed for the mk 4? would i see a noticable difference in performance or is it all in the head ?

    cheers, craig.

    yh u will see a bit of a gain as the filter elements are less restrictive, but not that less restrictive to let the cr*p through, ive got a pipercross replacement, much better ride, oh oh get the veccy c pipe mod done to it to, £13 odd quid from vauxhall!!

    To be honest you'll only notice a SLIGHT change in induction tone, if that. Peformance wise, you'll probably notice a slight increase in throttle response, but nothing amazing.
