Take my advice for what it's worth:rofl

Avoid it!!!:lol

If you're going to go induction then use one that comes with a surround that shields the filter from the heat of the engine bay. Failing that just use a replacement panel filter offered by the likes of K&N or Pipercross:thumbsup

I gave up on induction kits when I had the 1.8 16v in the coupe as although they sounded great the power always felt strangled.

I have however purchased a Dave F induction kit for the Motorsport engine which is now in the coupe but i'm unable to report back as it's still not been fitted as yet:frown
:thumbsup

They are K&N filters. Must admit, never looked in to the K&N Gen 2:confused

Interesting point you raised there:thumbsup
