    1.9 cdti airbox on 1.4?

    i know alot of gsi and vxr owners put 1.9 cdti airbox on theres with a k&n filter, wondering as ive got a 3 inch air intake into throttle body ready if it would be better/possible to use a 1.9 cdti airbox with k&n filter over a k&n cone filter?

    any ideas welcome!

    the 1,9 one is good on the Z20 cars as it goes to the turbo on your car it wont fit

    have a look at a 1.9 engine, then a Z22SE then a Z20LEx engine then have a look at yours!

    See if you can spot the big difference

    **clue: look at the location of the TB or in this case the turbo.....


    Basically the inlet is at the front of the engine, whereas in yours its at the back

    the 1.9 box would physically fit on your car but the outlet pipe on the box would need to come out the front then turn back on itself to route around the back of the engine

    therefore pointless.....

    a K&N airfilter will be fine in the std airbox
    on your car or a cone filter will also work good if you want to fit one
