    As per title. I know the DA comes with a K&N cone (which I've measured to be 76mm in diameter) but most have ditched this in favour of something else. I was planning on an ITG Maxogen (JC60) with a Gunner1 heatshield. But what size cone would be best? Is it a case of biggest is best?

    Any feedback is appreciated.

    If you look on the ITG website they give a HP rating for the size of filter. The JC60's are a good filter, i got a significant improvement when fitting one

    I did have a look (here for anybody interested but I'm not sure what size I should go for. The K&N that comes with the kit is 76mm in diameter so what size is a good upgrade? The 76mm ITG would to cover what I'm eventually aiming for, but I thought I may as well get a bigger one as surely more air is better for the s/c? Do you remember what size you used mate?

    I am pretty sure i had the JC60/80. When you order one, dont forget to order the oil spray that goes with it, I did !!!

    I've been over the build thread over and over lol. Literally writing down everything linked to DA so I could start researching everything. Good call on the oil spray! I hadn't thought of that.
