    Default Vectra Induction System

    From looking bout different websites iv notced things like panel air filters and induction kits are priced differently dependant on engine type. I was wondering if engine type really mattered and you could just but the cheapest kit? I realise the V6 is gonna have some diff parts but is there that much of a diff between a 1.8 and say a 2.2i?

    yeah I had one before i got the 150bhp diesel

    I had a k&n panel filter on mine cos I found out that the induction kits can play around with the sensors a bit

    Gonna get another panel one for this, maybe pipercross or courtenay sport

    Just remapped mine to 180bhp

    Where you get the remap done? I reckon you take away that flatspot it would make a huge difference! I was thinking bout the pipercross aswell I have to admit, done a bit of looking and there are a few horror storys with K&N

    Gareth runs the company with great knowledge and experience

    They will come to your home to do it and mine was only £180

    Unless you are buying a closed system ie: simota, bmc or viper type then you will be best just de restricting the airbox & buying a high flow panel filter.
