    Default Definitive answer?

    Been searchin the site for a few hours now but cant seem to find a definitive answer to a few q's about fittng a cone filter to a 1.9 cdti 150. My intension is, if possible, to just attach the cone in place of the airbox lid, so that it sits inside/just on the bottom of the box so its still getting some protection and cold air from outside. My main questions are, 1. Is this possible. 2. Are there any issues/problems by using a cone on the Z19dth engine. 3. What is the sound like, I don't want anything too boy racer-ish that sounds ridiculous. Any help appreciated guys.

    Size wise. Suffice air supply? Will it attach to no mountable pipe, whuch means you'll need to retro fit new pipe for cone to clip onto. That all i can think of so far.

    Thanks Paddy, that's what I was looking for really. What about this "hoover sucking noise" I have read about, Is it really that bad? Humorbash, sorry, not very tech minded, can do basics but that's it lol. Not had the car long, and never fitted a cone to a car before so not really sure how an the best place to fit if im honest.

    I had an £80 k&n the turbo noise was good but it sounds like their a hole in the exhaust. Also after a moth the vibrations rubbing the cone holder damaged the filter nearly making a hole through it!
