Not much performance gain, but a bit more responsive.
Mainly got one for ease of maintenance, cos my airbox was falling apart more and more every time i changed the filter element.

But, the noise.......Wow!!!!, sounds totally awesome-Really!!!
You would think it was a Dump Valve blowing off, if you are hard throttle and short shift, every gearchange is follwed by a loud "WOOOSH"!, also a lot more Turbo whistle, as it allows more open airflow to it, Typically, what i love to do is, mid-revs in 2nd, then floor the throttle!, a lovely loud turbo whistle upto 5,000rpm, and rapido speed, followed by a loud "whoosh" again up into 3rd.
Purely Beautiful!!!

Obviously, as regards a petrol engine, i cant really say how it would sound and perform.
Hope this helps!

My ex loves, Re-mapped 1.9 jtd GT and 156 2.4 jtd, angel tuned
Current ride, awesome volvo 855 T5, many mods an 300 horse!!

I found out the hard way in my 156 a few years back in the heavy floods around Christmas time. Lost the engine

Since then I have never risked flooded roads again, even when other cars seem to manage. Its a warning to all 156 owners out there - Alfa put the intake low to increase performance but that can be a real danger when the roads get a little more than just wet!
