    Default K&N now fitted....

    ....... i thought my 1.9 cdti was bl00dy quick anyway with the tuning box...however after installing the K&N air filter, plus doing the air box mod - the car feels so much more responsive!!

    Not exactly an earth shattering difference but so much smooth at lower revs and when you give it a boot it just goes now!!

    Had a race (memories of my impreza days) with a honda civic type R (02 reg) last week - and managed to keep just the 2 car lengths apart same as when we started!! (i am hoping he was flat out too, but not sure!! )

    anyway not saying racing is big or clever but what i am saying is the K&N is pukka!!!

    Glad you are pleased with the K&N. Did you reset your ECU after fitting?
