    quite a few of us have them, not much improvement, not that i've seen anyway. Have noticed the temp of the engine sits at 85c used to be 90c.

    mixed thoughts here then.
    i ordered it via europarts which states Guaranteed horsepower
    i was looking for a little impoved performance.
    Ive also read about the oil on the filter damaging the maf sensor
    dont know wether to bother now as whats a standard filter; about a fiver
    yeah it never needs replacing but will take nearly ten years to pay for its self and my car is already 6 years old lol

    It may give 1 or 2bhp but how will you know? Its probably the same as running an empty washer bottle to save weight. Won't do any harm though

    I fitted one, mainly because I wanted to, lol. Apparently it doesn't make much difference on turbo diesels performance wise, though I noticed the lag on rolling pick up decreased, also fitted silicon vacuum hoses, that helped even more.
    If you stay with paper filters, do the airbox mod, makes no sense to have the engine breathe through only half the filter.
