    Default real hp figures- filter/induction kit

    from auto express website

    "To see how well cars respond when the standard filter is replaced by a sports set-up, we took a Vauxhall Signum 1.9 CDTI diesel and a VW Golf GTI to tuning specialist Regal Autosport in Southampton.

    Here, we hooked the models up to a rolling road and logged power data with a standard element in place, then with a sports filter and a full induction kit. We used K&N sports filters (£48) on both cars, a K&N Apollo induction kit (£190) on the Signum and an Evolution V-Flow (£249) on the Golf.

    Vauxhall Signum CDTI
    Standard*/Sports filter/Induction kit: 150bhp/152bhp/156bhp


    VW Golf GTI
    Standard*/Sports filter/Induction kit: 218bhp/219bhp/224.5bhp

    *As tested at Regal Autosport (023 8055 8636, www.regal-auto.co.uk) "

    So, you get extra 2 hp with the filter and 6 with the induction kit.

    Pity they didnt do the airbox mod as well

    Default

    We tested a 2.0T Vectra at Tunit and got the opposite.

    I can't remember the figures now but a K&N Panel Filter was obviously better then standard, but a K&N Induction kit (no cold feed) was lower on power than the panel filter.
