    Vehicle : Vectra SRi

    Trim : XP1

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi 150

    Obviously open air induction kits are bad (heatsoak) - closed kits are very good but expensive for specific kits (there are cheap generic ones on eBay but dont know if they are any good or not) - so I suppose it depends on budget.

    Most people stick a K&N panel filter in and be done with it.

    I have a Simota Closed Induction kit on mine and its made a very good difference to the pickup and the sound (oh the sound ).

    So to sum up, if you want an induction kit, go for a closed one, otherwise stick a k&n (or equiv) panel filter in

    For your car, I have voted for the K&N Panel.

    I voted Pipercross. I am waiting the arrival of a Viper sealed unit £195 smakers.

    I have a generic cone filter fitted and the sound is amazing but with the loss of toque when hot.

    When you fit it, do you fancy whipping up a how to on here and letting me know how it sounds buddy? I might go for one of these if i can spare the dosh

    Keep it standard - it won't sound any better but it'll keep all the crud away from the sensors and engine - just change it regularly.

    As said, a clean paper one will do the same job but filter better. If you still want a "sports filter" then the Cotton ones like Cotton Green and K&N are best for filtration over foam ones like the Pipercross.

If its just sound your after then just drill some hole's in the bottom of the airbox.
