    Default K & N Filter

    How easy or difficult is a K & N filter to fit to a 2.2 SRi please? Are we talking minutes or hours? Does one have to be mechanically minded, also does fitting one reap great benefits or just marginal? In other words is it really worth the expense? Any advice much appreciated thanks!

    if you can open the bonnet i think you can do the air filter

    should take you about 10 mins

    buy a cheap torx set your going to need them for the filter box and there all over the car and as you can see there not going to break the bank

    look at the links and you can see what you are looking for

    very easy to do mate, i am useless with a toolset and i managed it lol
    try courtenays btw was on their site and they had them for a good price and they do their own

    a mate actually had a rolling road done years ago before and after a k+n panel filter on his car and gained 4 bhp so not massive but mine does rev a bit better since i fitted mine so maybe worth it.

    theres also a bit of the airbox you can unclip which helps as well

    just got one for mine and paid £40 from ebay, courtenays had it for about £48, so a small saving there.

    you say about 4bhp - 4bhp for £40 is a bargin.

    How many places can you get 1hp per £1......no where I can think of.
