    Induction kit 1.8 coupe

    Hi

    The age old discussion, which induction kit works best with the Z18XE1.

    Thinking an induction kit is the way forward, anybody put either the viper or K&N Apollo kits through their paces?

    Currently running a standard k&n sports filter with gains of around 4bph, hasn't been remapped.

    If this has already been done, my apologies, please redirect/link me up!

    There isn't a Z18XE1, it's either a X18XE1 or a Z18XE.

    dnt really make a big difference what u put on as youd never really tell if any!!!... different effects probably on different cars so putting a viper,k&n ect to gain exactly 8bhp or 10bhp... what exactly do u really want to know?? which is better or which will improve the bhp or proven to??

    Yep, it's wrong.

    Vauxhall's EPC and TIS, and OpCom confirms.....

    Also if you look on your engine, the engine code is on it.
