    1.7 airbox mods?

    Hi

    I read in the technical section about the airbox mods and the vectra c pipe and have some questions.

    Is the derestriction of the airbox okay for the 1.7tdi as well as the petrol engines?
    What year does the Vectra inlet pipe need to come from?
    Other than the K&N/Piper Cross etc panel filters is there an induction filter that works for the deisel engines?

    Do the above mods (airbox, filter, inlet pipe) make sufficient gains to make it worth doing?

    Cheers

    Yes
    From vaux is easiest
    If you mean like a cone filter then anything works

    Up for debate, might give a few horses and will make it breath easier

    Thanks Guys, Are you saying that ANY cone filter with the right diameter will work? There's very few advertised for the 1.7 deisel.

    Im planning on putting a cone on mine sometime, I think any cone can be made to fit with reducers etc.

    If I were you I would take off the airbox and measure the pipe diameter (before the AFM) and try and get a cone with that diameter to make life easy.
