    With an induction kit it doesn't really matter if you put the kit on before or after. But I myself like to see a customers car running with them on to know that it is running correct before I remap the car. Talking on which, if I can be of service to you with remapping then please drop me a line on 07930410102 or email me at info@APTuning.co.uk

    IK's are a bit of a false economy on BM's unless you go for an enclosed kit or one with a very very effective heatshield. The under bonnet temps are very high and hot air will lose you power rather than gain it. Sound good though.

    in the past i have always going for just the panel filter, as the only thing a induction kit seams to give you is more noise.... but this has mainly been on vx's...

    would be interested to see what you guys reckon about bm's... what is better, panel or induction..??

    Vauxhalls hate cone filters, they knacker the afm and lose you power! red tops suffered the most, followed by the eco -crap engine that replaced it!
    If you are going down the panel filter route, avoid k+n, as over oiled, and go for green cotton filter, or pipercross.
