    Best to fit a "boxed" induction kit as all you'll draw is hot air, if you use an open cone like the pic. If you do use a "boxed" one, the car's throttle should be sharper. On my 1.9cdti i get a dumping noise when changing gear, think the straight through exhaust helps to make it louder

    That deffo looks like a TU engine from either a saxo or pug. TBH they didnt suffer as much from drawing hot air in. You can still get an induction noise from an enclosed cone system like a Viper or Apollo. My top tip is not to get a specific kit, just get a universal or any sealed kit from ebay then just mate it up to your car with some silicone joiners. I managed to get a Cotton Green sealed system for £14 delivered, then just bought a silicone joiner from Auto Performance, bobs your uncle, expensive induction kit for pennies.
