    Hi guys.

    Was wondering what induction kits you would recommend for an E36 323i 1997.

    Not too pricey and direct fit of course.

    Thank you in advance

    None stick with the original air box and stick a K&n filter inside it.

    There's also a guide to modifying the original airbox somewhere on the net.

    would sticking a flat k&n in the box give the same effects as a hole induction kit? ie sound and performance?

    I can't say for sure about power but as for noise levels well the original airbox is what keeps the noise down in the first place so I'd have to say no.

    Having said that though try find the guide I mentioned, I'll look for it now actually.

    ive been using a derestriced and drilled box for years and a k&n pannel inside of it with a good cold air feed works great, for the last week ive been testing the pipercross big air filer great sound but was slower and used more fuel.
    stanced vert OEM BABY! when verts go mad

    If you can find one then get a Dave-F Induction kit-I organised the last ever group buy for a Dave-F AFAIK and now you can only get 2nd hand kits on ebay......first though I would put an M50B25 manifold on yours if you haven't already done it
