    According to the listing, it says you'll pic up '5 horsepower'. No, you won't feel that. That being said, ninety-nine bucks (I mean pounds ) is not a bad price to pay, because you'll never have to buy another air filter. K&N makes a decent, reliable product, just not the most horsepower. In comparison, I've got what's called a 'Blackwing' on the vette. Same principle as the one you want, though there is a 'little' more of a ram-air effect. Dyno'ed before and after the install, and picked up 12.2 horsepower. But the Blackwing cost $300 Have you researched other name brands?

        i would recommend staying away from an open cone filter mate,
        if you wont an induction kit look more along the lines of an apollo

          You CAN hear a little more of a 'shooshing' sound (for lack of a better word :? )on WOT, but it doesn't sound bad at all, and completely non-noticeable with an aftermarket exhaust.

            As aussie says stay clear of any open air kit, any filter needs to be a cold air feed type or you will just drawn in hot air and loose hp

              I have fitted that Filter to my VXR, i know what everybody says about power loss but i havn't noticed any loss at all through heat soak.

              The sound of whooshing on lift off and the induction noise on throttle is well worth the £80.

                    One with a sealed cold airfeed mate, like a Viper for example. I had an open air quickshift filter on my old SXi, which stole some of my bhp, and I'd guess the vxr produces a lot more heat, so be careful

                      Agree with Dan, I have had the k&n induction kit on for 5 months now and haven't noticed any difference at all in performance plus it finishes off the colour coded engine bay better than the standard air box.

                        standard airbox standard filter, £80 buys a lot of standard filters and your warranty will remain in tact
