    Default K&N filter question for 2.2dti sri

    hi, has anyone on here used the k&n 57i INDUCTION KIT (57-0586) on a 2.2 dti sri? (53 plate)

    i have done the airbox mod, and am still using the standard filter, but i would prefer to upgrade to the induction kit rather than using the k&n panel filter...

    the trouble is i`ve heard a few times of engines not liking the induction kits, and i`m reluctant to lay out £70 quid if its gunna give me problems...

    if anyone has used it on the same engine how much louder has it made it? is it bearable, and is it loud all the time or just when accelerating? ie can u have a conversation over it at 70 on the motorway?

    cheers

    i used a K&N induction kit on my old Vectra B 2.2dti and it performed worse.

    I'd go for the panel filter, as it's enclosed in the airbox taking it's cold air from the front of the car instead of where the heat is next to the engine

    I put on my DTI and sounded good but not great with all the warm air it was sucking in.
