145/146 air filter


I've got a K&N filter + induction kit (er tube!) at the moment but Jano at Autodelta always slagged it off, he then went on about the carbon air filter kit he has but from what i can see its the older filter case with one of these


and a carbon tube to drag some more air into the housing.

Has anyone tried both and which ones best, i do notice that 500-3000 revs is slow in my car and then she kicks in...is this the same with others

Would i get an improvement by installing the above filter and sticking some tube (currently dragging air next to the front fog lamps) into the filter case?

Re: 145/146 air filter


I think that carbon tube is used to replace the ressonance box that sits infront of the air-filter box, that is used to reduce induction noise. So replacing it with the tube ought to get you a bit of power gains.
I remeber McGuinn talking about this not so long ago... better do a search

all the Best
