    Hi,

    nutron went the whole hog with his:-

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...ghlight=filter

    however, you can go as simply as just removing the bottom pipe thats inside the airbox that allows the whole of the filter to be used. This seems to make the major difference.

    Vehicle : Vauxhall

    Trim : very

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : Nosey

    Default

    I had an x20dth in a prior life and raised that from 100bhp to 138 bhp, the fuel ecconomy also dropped by the same sort of proportion though but I did drive it like a nut.

    That had a drilled air box, k&N panel filter and a lexmaul tuning box. Also tried a K&N cone filter but it cause a drop in low down torque probably because it was too small (K&N have a habit of under estimating diesel engine requirements).

    I did the K&N and removed the pipe in the airbox today. I could not believe how much cr^p was it the airbox. Dead flies, beed, a lump of polystyrene foam, grass, hay and even two fag buts for Gods sake!
    Doesn't seem tremendously different, but not had the chance of a long run yet.
