    A pal has just given me this 'induction kit', says it gives a nice performance boost and it will fit my car.

    Obviously, I'm eager to try it out, but I recall seeing things on here about airflow sensors and stuff and that fitting this kind of thing to my car was not a good idea. So I'm confused.

    Is it kosher to fit this? Will it have any detrimental effects on my beloved motor?

    You will need to fit a heatshield if not then the kit draws in hot air from the engine and you'll lose HP.You'll get the induction sound but probably wont enhance perfomance

    Ah, sod the sound, that doesn't bother me. But no performance gain?

    My pal was using it on an MG, and he said it defo boosted power. I had thought ages ago about getting one myself, but I seem to recall being put off by comments on here about complications and stuff about sensors, etc. I'd be happy to try it out as long as it's not gonna do any damage, like bugger a sensor or anything like that. Will anything like that happen?

    Also, could you link me to such a heatshield so that I know what I'm looking for?

    1997 E36 328i - induction kit heatshield
    I have an Induction kit on my car and it didn't damage any sensors.Without a shield there will more than likely be HP loss but you will experience better throttle response and you MAY experience an increase in HP with a heastshield on
