    Smile induction kits?

    Hello, have been looking at a few as a fairly easy mod,

    theres one called RPower induction kit, does anyone know the brand?

    Had one?

    Only reason i ask is because they are very nicely priced at just under £50 with a cold air feed...

    any info would be great

    or even an alternative

    don't bother with an induction kit, a k&n or pipercross panel filter will do alot more than an induction kit

    As above. You will get very little extra noise aswell from an open cone. The induction system on astras has that much metal it just soaks up the noise

    My open cone is much, much louder than the standard set up. Thats a 1.4 16v.
    The only downside is heatsoak which every cone will get unless its in its own enclosure with cold air feed.
