    Default Cleaning Induction Kit has Made Car So Quiet!

    After being given a boll ocking off Ditchp about the state of my induction kit I have bought a cleaning kit and just spent an hour cleaning it

    The amount of fine dirt that washed into the sink was unbelievable but what was even more amazing was how quiet it is now to drive in comparison to before- I'd say it's halved the amount of noise inside the car!!!!!!

    Although I can now hear the Mrs more it's well worth doing if anyone's thinking about doing it!!

    I cleaned the big cone at the end. I got a proper K+N cleaning kit from Roadrunner for £9.95 and for once I followed the instructions carefully! I seriously felt like I was in a different car when I started it up!

    As for pictures- NO BECAUSE MY NEW PHONE IS BROKEN AND ON HOILDAY AT T-MOBILE'S DOCTORS!!!!!!!!

    It's unbelieveable how much dirt comes off isn't it?!

    I used to use a K&N kit to clean my BMC CDA on my Astra!

    Hope you remembered to re-oil the filter afterwards
