    Vehicle : Vectra C OPC Estate

    Trim : OPC / VXR

    Engine : Z28NET

    Year : 2006

    Default

    Can I ask why..?

    For looks, sound or because you think it gives a little in performance..?

    On the 2.8V6 Turbo you have already intercooler.. So the intake air is cooled down before being sucked in the engine. Even if it takes the hot air directly from enginebay it will be cooled down in the intercooler.

    So cars with Intercooler dosen´t need to worry about getting hot air in intake..
    The story is ofcause different with car with no Intercooler. They can achive a performance loss if the intake air is hot..

    i thought for looks more than anything
    and to proberly get more cold air into the car

    just did not know if it would fit as there is another small pipe that comes of the engine to the air filter housing

    Every tuner I have met and every rolling road I've been on have told me never to fit these or induction kits. Just panel filters
