    If you fit a cone filter then you run the risk of sucking in very hot air from the engine compartment when in slow moving traffic (all engines like cold air, more dense, therefore more of it ). That's why all motors have an air intake pipe from the atmosphere (ie. outside the engine compartment)

    So unless you fit a cold air ram induction kit (cone filter is enclosed in a big box which has an air intake hose from the grille area or other exposed outside area), you may as well fit a panel filter IMO.

    See what other members say before deciding - this is just my opinion having had cone filters on other motors.
