I've looked at the threads on induction kits ... a bit above my technical skill level!

So I'm looking for recommendations on 3rd party airfilters. I'm not so much interested in performance boost (though I wouldn't want a cut) as a nice intake roar.

What should I go for?

I fitted an Autodelta one. Revs smoother now and can hear it whoosh on accelerations....

Be wary, very wary with aftermarket filter arrangements, they tend to eat mafs and that gets expensive. There were a lot of people on the Sportsalfa forum who had mafs failing with Autodelta kits, may have been coincidence but there did seem a lot. Also Franky, a reg on here, has that kit and has done 5 mafs in 18 months, but then he is the most unlucky guy in the universe....

General consensus is that BMC CDA is a good one and doesnt break mafs. I've just fitted one and it does make a difference, bit of a pain to fit though and not a straightforward swap. Its a clearly nicely made quality bit of kit and great noise when you boot it though :D

Hi,

I want to ask which part numbers you used to make the kit. Was this for the 3.0 V6? Also do you have a picture of it fitted?

I ask becuase I am a retailer of BMC and I am currently working through the applications to list the correct products where there isn't yet a car specific kit available.

My website is BMC Performance Air Filters so if you do send the picture could I use it on there?

Thank you

Steve
