    Hi all, Is it worth replacing the standars air cleaner box with an after market cold air induction kit?

    Thanks

    As long as its a proper kit with a decent heatshield then yes its worth replacing even if just for the sound you'll get from it

    Power wise, you are not likely to gain, and your are more likely to lose unless you have some kind of shroud between the engine and the IK. Heat soak you see.

    Like StK said though.....will sound much better.

    I made mine from an ITG filter I had kicking about, a 45 degree silicone bend off eBay and a couple of stainless clamps I had. Works a treat, just need to make a fibreglass heatshield for it now and job done for about £30 if that.

    Or you could save yourself the hassle and buy a Dave F Induction Kit.

    As all the above really as long as there is a nice cool air feed and shielding from the warm engine jobs a good en Even something like a BMC CDA induction kit.

    Or make your own - check my build thread I made my own

    Will sound amazing after though

    Agree!!

    Mine cost me less than £80 for all new bits and a bit of time putting it together with a horn relocation

    Just need to get a water sock so that it don't pick up spray
