  • Induction Kit...

    Just wondering wot induction kits people are using on there vxr's. At the mo i got the standard Air box, will a panel filter make a dfference in noise. Also, seen a video on u tube of a corsa with a induction kit and u can hear the turbo chatter and everything , just wondering does the astra's sound like tha ?

    i have one on mine and it does sound good, sounds jet like at full throttle. Thinking of changing mine to a Carbon BMC filter

            I had one on my vxr and it didnt loose power it did however cause a bit of grief when i went to stage 2 so reverted back to the standard airbox and ITG filter from TMS and its alot smoother now but it did sound great with the K&N.

                    The 1.9 CDTi kit is the way to go, i tried ITG filter then a piper enclosed system but Percy VXR's kit felt better than both and reduced the intake temps more too.

                      dont go for an induction kit you will suffer from heat soak unless you get a fully enclosed one with a cold air feed. if i were you i would stick with standard setup as this has been proven to be able to cope fine, or go for the 1.9cdti setup

                          Set up like this mate, using the 1.9 CDTi airbox and re-routed pipework.
