    Default "Universal"

    I have been looking at the pipercross viper kit after reading some excellent reviews and because im not going to be able to afford my exhaust system as soon as i thought so would like the 'induction roar' over a panel filter.

    I have e-mailed pipercross to ask if they do one for the vectra 1.8 but they said they only do it for the 2.2 vectra and that this one WILL NOT fit my 1.8.

    Yet these are on e-bay as "Universal" or "Fit most"

    So what makes them universal and what stops the one from the 2.2 or another fitting mine?

    Thanks,

    Gaz.

    i would stay away from an induction kit unless you get a cold air feed and heat shield with it.......otherwise you are just pulling in warm air and that aint good,
    vauxhalls prefere performance panel filter's and air box mod....that is what i was told by a vx tuner many moon's ago

    The ones i am looking at are are enclosed and with cold air feed mate, i wouldnt touch an open cone. Few of my mates have them and they just suck in hot air as you say.

    I was vertually set on panel filter and air box mod but i want a bit more noise from the engine. Would drilling the air box do this? or is that a useless mod?

    Thanks,

    Gaz

    used to drill the airbox myself but not bothered with this one as mod done and works well enough...go for one of the universal one's if you want induction sound, should come with rubber washer's to allow fitment onto the air intake pipe.....

    cheers rich. I will give them a go i think. Where would be the best place to run the cold intake pipe? Will i need to put the red bell shape (in first pic above) collar in the grill somewhere?

    Cheers mate.

    Ive just put in a bid on this pipercross viper kit... Its off a clio 172 but i reckon i will be able to get the intake hose to fit the vectra quite easily.

    There is no reserve and it doesnt seem like the bloke knows what its worth, condition looks mint.

    What do you reckon?
