    Default have i done the right thing?

    hi all as the title suggests have i done right by removing the k&n induction kit and going back to the airbox with the mod and panel filter or should i have just left the induction kit on?? hope this makes sense

    I've done the same chap !!! .... but the induction kit will go back on when i want the noise , but at the mo the quietness of the airbox is a welcomed break

    as Sean has just said its only 1 or 2 bhp that separates the 2 , so it's really whether you want the sound or not !!!

    remember to disconnect you battery for 20 mins to reset the ecu chap !!!! if you didn't when you put the k&n on could be the reason your car didn't like it much !!!!

    Did/Does it, other than noise, run any differently, i.e smoother/rougher, more/less MPG etc?

    Battery disconnect for reset is a myth as far as i know, coming from the days of the old ecus on cavaliers and astras.

    Personally I'm in favour of the panel filter for extra bhp and fuel economy.

    Don't see the appeal of a noisy car to be honest.

    the tickover is better feels a little smoother but as for mpg couldnt tell you yet as the induction kit uses a little more im thinking it might be slightly better but i do miss the noise

    you ALWAYS need to dis-connect your battery after modding the engine .... What have you got to loose by having a go ??.....other than radio stations ????
