    Ive got a K&N panel filter in mine,its fine, and it gets rid of the flat spot. these filters seem to be the choice of panel filter for the vec.


    cheers...Bob

    I think the bad press you have heard is about the induction systems - rather than the box mod and panel filter?

    I've not heard anything negative from their fitment.

    Hi, a lot of people talk about the 'flat spot' in the 1.8i. I may be lucky and have not noticed one in mine, but where does it occur and when is it most noticable? eg WOT and 4000 revs? Any details? By the way, I have a K&N panel.

    mine seemd to lack power at about 3-4k then pick up at 4500. but it feels a lot better now. seems to pull well all through the range. i thought that was the flat spot they were talking about but to be honest that was just a guess..

    Anyone know if the airbox mods and replacement filters apply to the new 1.8 VVT ?? also I presume there must be warranty issues with these.
