    Talking Does anyone have a K&N?

    Hi all,

    Does anyone actually use a K&N cone on thier 2.2 Direct?

    I have seen and heard loads of people going, 'oh no, no, no...'

    I just wondered if anyone actually had success?

    I am going to try one this weekend, going to build a heat sheild too, to go between engine and the K&N.

    Also get a cold feed pipe to it, or extend the cone down to hearer to the bottom of th car as possible!

    What are peoples thoughts on that bit? Either get a longer cold air pipe to it? Or put it lower to the ground?

    Cheers for now,
    Ian.

    Yes I have a K&N 57i on mine with a heatshield and cold air feed.

    I used too have a panel filter with the air box mod and wasn't overly impressed. But with the induction kit the car pulls much better than it ever did.

    DONE MINE!

    K&N Cone. Fitted. Works a treat!

    little bit of trottle, some succking noises....give it BIG throttle, and you get a real throaty groan and sucking noise! :-)

    Revv's free'r, gear changes both down and up on theauto box are better too!

    Whoop!
    :-)

    2.2 direct btw! :-)

    I have a k&n induction kit on my 2.2 SRI. Notice very little difference in power, consumption, gear changes or throttle. However this means it doesnt cause any problems.... Oh..... and it sounds LUSH!
