    Default K&N panel filter

    Has anyone got one fitted? I've bought one for my service next week and just wondered if they do make a difference.

    Can the air box mod be done on all the different engines???

    My other car. 1972 1641cc slammed beetle. On the road finally!!

    Yes mate loads of us have them fitted , as to wether or not they make a difference that is an open debate , i suppose you could say that you will never need to buy another air filter so that will save you money in the long run if you keep the car long enough .
    The small gain in bhp is not really noticeable but the smoother pickup on acceleration is just depends on what engine you have

    hi i might be able to help on the bhp gains...am going on a R/R may 2nd...have got the read out from last time without a K&n so am going to borrow someones on the day and ck against old readings...then decide whether i will get one or not .
    Some members believe the k&n filter to be too open and can let more crap than desired in and have swopped bk to ordinary vx filters
