    You would be better off keeping your original air box, and using a K&N panel filter, as cone filters have a tendency to draw in hot air from within the engine bay if not installed properly and you could lose power, or a K&N Apollo would be a better solution as this is totally sealed.

    the best thing to do with a cone filter is put it in the bin!!!
    get a panel filter, green cotton etc.

    without putting in too much money/effort easiest would probably be a decent panel filter and as large an air feed as u can make work with the airbox u have.
    as for which cone is best.. answer in short is none. there isnt that much if any real difference between a £8 ebay special and a £100 apex'i cone apart from the price really. any marginal difference would be too small to notice anyway.
