    Default Air Filter VXR

    Does anyone know a good air filter for the VXR Vec - I have looked at a few places and get the message "Not for the VXR"

    Is there actually one made yet?

    Does the VXR have a different airbox to the rest of the range then? Every other vec c will take the same size K&N panel filter....

    It does look smaller actually - Not only that they have different ones for bigger engines - When I had a Vec B 2.5 v6 GSI I had to have a different one to all over vec's

    The VXR "sucks" so hard that an aftermarket airfilter is not recommended, it sucks the oil out of them and causes you big probs !! The recomendation from the main tuners is to change the oem one frequently . This comes from guys who would benifit from flogging aftermarket ones so there must be a basisi for it ..

    Wow when I said I had found one - I had not bit of a missunderstanding.

    Looks like I just stick with standard then.

    Thanks,

    K&N part no 33-2337 same as Saab. I have had it fitted for 15000 miles with no problems.

    K&N come correctly oiled from factory only cheap copies have to much oil so beware.

    A K+N panel filter won't make much more induction noise if any...
