    Put an induction kit on then! Panel filter will let as much air in especially if you've done the mod! Get a Caterman box and a decent cat back exhaust and that'll free it up!

    Power wise, you gain absolutely nothing from any changes to the induction, whether that's a panel filter or a full induction kit.

    I had a k&n and did the airbox mod on my 1.9, and definitely noticed a difference. Not an induction roar, not by any means, but the engine sounded much meatier. And although you won't gain any power, it lets the engine breathe more easily so things like throttle response are sharper.

    I have to agree. I've recently changed to the K&N panel filter and did the mod. It does sound a bit better and responds better too.

    I have removed the trumpet and I have K&N. Loads of swooshing intake sound. Got even louder when I did a ram-air tube to the front.
