    Air filter z20let

    Yo guys
    Quick question, i have a z20let astra coupe and ive been doing some looking around lately and have seen alot of turbo's (not just z20's), with mushroom filters or to be specific, aftermarket filters, i was just wondering will i see a gain with putting one of these on, or should i just get an upgraded panel filter.
    Cheers

    believe me mate, theres a very divided opinion on this matter.

    i would go for the cdti/2.2 airbox with a beeson intake (see classifieds) and an aftermarket panel filter, but thats my opinion and i know others use cones and others use those mushroom ones your on about lol, its all down to personal preference really...

    most in the know run standard oe paper filters, so called performance filters are waste of time, although the apexi induction is a cracker if want the noise and its paper too.
    performance filters have also been know to kill afm's due to oil, or being over oiled, so save ya cash and stick with oe

    Cone filter is good if you like lots of noise, but i just changed my cone filter for the 2.2 setup & i noticed a slight gain in power & it made the car run alot smoother.
