    Default AutoExpress Article - Air Filters

    Hi
    A friend of mine passes me Auto express now and again and I read this article with interest.

    Download the page which I have scanned it and check out the grey box at the bottom of the page in the middle - details the BHP gains on a CDTI Signum.

    Cant see the point on shelling out £190 for an induction kit to give a 6bhp gain
    Just put a box on for less than half that cost and get 30bhp+

    Its nice that we begining to see real figures to highlight what a waste of time these "Sports Filters" are. 2 bhp increase for £ 40 odd, waste of your money. Hot or cold air going into your engine makes a bigger increase than that. For years we've had the so called experts telling us "get a K & N filter, mate" and people have lapped it up. If you want to waste money its upto you but at least now we're getting the figures to prove it.

    Filters are consumables, not for life
