    Default 3.0 cdti Induction Kit?

    Does anyone know if an induction kit is available for this engine? I am on the verge of getting a K&N panel filter and thought I would check first?

    Dont know about a car specific one but there are some nice Carbon Fibre closed induction kits on Ebay. £30-£40 i think.
    I'm running one on my 1.9cdti, nice tone and i get a "flutter" coming through the kit

    Get the VXR 280 airbox, or modify your own to suit and fit a K&N panel filter. This works well, I did this on my last 3.0 and it worked well.

    But avoid the induction kits, the exposed versions do nothing, and although the enclosed version's keep out the hot air, they don't look very good and will give you no more advantage than a standard/modified air box and decent panel filter.

    Beg to differ mate,
    Ran the airbox mod then ran a CDA and the difference was night and day.
    Not only in sound but also in throttle response.
    My findings anyway

    this one http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/UNIVERSAL-CARB...item3c9ef59261
    is the same as twaiter is running.
    It takes a bit of ar$ing around but it does fit
    Done a good few of these types of induction kit, and they do make a difference to the way the car breathes.
    Had a Fabia vRS runnin stupid power, but fitted one of these kits and it was so much smoother and responsive...............On the veccy, it does give a nice noise plus the wastegate feeds through it giving a nice "flutter" noise lol

    If i was closer bud i'd let you see and hear it

    I've seen some of your posts on it, thats why I want one

    The dti air box goes straight through (turbo is at the rear of the engine) so it shouldn't be to difficult to fit
