There was a thread about replacing the intake resonator on a 2.0ts 156 (complex and restrictive bit of the intake system), with the plain pipe from the JTD or V6 156, and fitting a performance filter, but i'm not sure how to find or attatch that link. Anyone help?
Anyway, the orig system draws cold air from behind the front bumper, but is restrictive. i have a BMC replacement filter (very good - better than KN i reckon), which gave a little more responce, and when I have time I will swop the resonator for the pipe (draws air from same place). Reckon its the cheapest way to improve the air intake as the pipe is about £8 from ayou friendly dealer (!), and it looks standard if you open the bonnet.
Or the best intake kit is meant to be BMC CDA, but at appx£150???? and as they both draw air from the same place, and essentially reduce restriction, I am working on the £43 (pipe 8, BMC filter 35) DIY version being about 60% as good for 25% money!!
