    Default Vxr Or Gsi Intake?

    hi all, i have done my air box mod and am waiting on my k&n panel filter to arrive but i have a thought, i`m thinking of getting a gsi or a vxr intake pipe and doing this at the same time as changing the filter (hopefully saturday). my question is : is the gsi and vxr intake the same? if not which one i better? or am i limited to a gsi one as my car is prefacelift?

    another point is that i am thinking of modding the topside of my airbox but am not 100% sure this is safe after reading throught posts. i have also read that vxrs have the top airbox mod done as standard? is this true? if so surely it couldnt be that bad for the engine


    thanks in advance!!

    I would say that the one you want is the GSI air intake,i personally would'nt remove top of airbox,could cause damage to the MAF,good luck with your mods m8.........

    This might help

    Here is the excellent how-to that Sammy wrote... http://forum.vectra-c.com/showthread.php?t=54505

    I've got a 3.2 GSi with the long pipe and have ordered two shorter ones (to make one big scoop) and will be fitting this weekend.
