    Default Air filters and induction kits

    May seem a bone question, but as every body is talking filters, I have a 2.2DTI on 52 plate, I haven't yet looked at the nick of my filter, (on my to do list) but If I went and bought a normal panel K&N filter or if I Decided to by the induction kit http://knperformancefilters.co.uk/k-.../prod_631.html would I (a) still need a panel filter and (b) would there be any noticeable real world difference?

    Cheers

    I personally would not use a induction kit as all they do is suck in hot air from under the bonet and this reduces power,but in answer to your question no you do not still need a panel filter with an induction kit.
    I would go for a new panel filter and keep it clean.

    Not all induction kits are like that, there are many closed induction kits which only use the air from a cold feed.

    i have just changed from a k&n panel filter to an induction kit a wow what a differance it has made. even with the k&n panel filter the car felt sluggish in first and second gear and only picked up when i got to 3rd gear.
    now with the induction kit the car is way more responsive from start i would recommend the induction kit as i have now tried both and what a differance. but i would recommend a heat shield unless you go for a inclosed induction kit.
