    Hi guys, Does anyone know if this kit would fit a mito 1.4 16v non turbo? it seems very similar to the one produced by GSR.

    I've had a search but can't find any threads, so does anyone know if there is a K&N drop in filter or similar available for the Veloce? I can't find one on K&Ns website, but wondered if anyone else does a similar one ?

    So after 4 years and over 25,ooo kms driving (lots of town driving, fair amount of motorway driving) I thought I'd report on the use of the K&N filter I installed in my S4 spider. It is the drop in type, fits the standard airbox, no mods. I read in several places that people say they don't...

    Before I made these mods I looked through the forums and could not for the life of me find a thread with any helpful advice. I thought I would post my experience just it case it can help someone out in the future. Despite not being able to find much advice I took the leap of faith and bought a...

    Bought a K&N filter (on impulse)!.... For my 170ma Sprint Speciale, before I read all the horror stories about the oil on the filter messing up the Maf!.... Anybody had one in for a while and can comment?:paranoid:

    I would like to fit a replacement filter on my GTV. I'm not looking for an exposed cone but rather a drop-in cylindrical filter or replacement airbox like CDA. Here are options that I am considering: 1. BMC CDA airbox 2. Drop-in K&N cylindrical filter 3. Drop-in BMC cylindrical filter If I use...

    Hi All! So I'm gong to have an oil change soon and I'm keen on the K&N HP-1010 Oil Filter. Have the air filter and am most impressed. This Oil Filter sounds the business and also give better throttle response. The only issue is that on the K&N site, it's listed for 2003 upwards but not for my...

    Been told in the FB groups that a quick change of air filter on the 0.9 Mito is a good idea. Been recommended K&N and BMC. Anyone done this and is it a noticeable difference ? ....Just have a feeling it's akin to putting spikes on you floor standing speakers to make them sound better :ermm:

    Hi, Looking for some advice around fitting a K&N or similar to my G. I have read about issues with grit and oil potentially damaging the engine and sensors so not sure if I am def going to go ahead and do it. I have seen a lot of kits on ebay but none specifically for the G. Assuming that I...

    I've been hearing some horror stories regarding K&N filters where the turbo gets sanded down with dust particles that go past the less efficient filter. Are they all hearsay or should I switch back to OEM filters? Sent from Free App

    Has anyone put a K&N filter on a 2.0 diesel G? If so what did they think about the noise and performance difference if any. Im keen on the fact they last 50k before maintenance so i'm less concerned about the noise or performance gains (which are questionable regardless of engine). Most people...

    Hi will a K&N filter be worth the extra money as apposed to standard what benefits are there? or would it be better just to change a standard one more often thanks
  16. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I'm going to replace the standard airbox with open filters mainly to get a bit more induction noise and make the underbonnet view nicer rather than a minimal increase in power - I've been told the pipercross are just as good as K&N's and the kit is considerably cheaper - just wondering what...

    Finally got round to fitting a K&N panel filter to my MiTO SBK this weekend. What a faff though! Alfa don't arf make things difficult, it took me over an hour. Anyway, the car sounds great now, lots of induction noise, chattering on the overrun, a nice whistle and a slightly better pull in N...

    K&N E-2986 - Replacement Filters, Replacement Air Filter Hi guys sorry to be a pain but can anyone confirm this is the correct part for a GQV? I just know it'll be wrong if I don't check! Can you recommend a good place to buy from and is this as good as BMC? I want turbo whoosh in my life!
  20. Alfa MiTo
    Hi! While running several times against one or two MiTos (identical specs but the others had K&N filters), I have never seen any improvement with the K&N filters. I think there should be some little difference because the K&N filters have less restriction to air flow -and lower dirt...
