    I run the 2.2 & runs great on stage 2, put a cone on every now & then for the sound but runs alot better with 2.2 setup.

    I have gone hack to the standard airbox now.

    But I did have a 2.2 box on. It made my turbo chatter very loud, as well and increasing the induction noise. TBH I didn't really notice any difference in performance or pick up.

    The 2.2 is cheaper than the 1.9CDTI box, because you can reuse all your stand hoses, but it does not look as nice.

    And cones are cool for sound and more induction noise. Who cares about 'heat soak', when you have 200+ BHP you can afford to lose a couple.
