    The 2.2 reacts very badly to an open cone mate. Best bet is a K&N panel filter in the de restricted stock air box or get a fully sealed system like the Viper.

    i fitted one and although it sounded good i found it killed the torque a wee bit, was also bad when engine got really hot and the filter was sucking hot air, but for the sake of 40 quid fit one and see what ye think

    It does suck hot air in mate thats true however I have one on my car and I had my car rolling roaded the other week I had alot more torque and BHP but I dont think thats just down to the filter although i dont have any other engine mods
