    Best Panel Filter for S3

    Hey,

    I am now a proud owner of a 2001 S3 and so far i am over the moon with it.

    I am looking to fit an aftermarket panel filter and would like to know what everyone recommends on the forum.

    Cheers,
    Chris

    mine has a cotton green jobie... it came with the remap.
    I looked at induction kits and got told... seat cupra race cars have standard airbox... so it must be better than the hot air sucking cone filters

    Dynatwist you mean? they are a cone filter with an alloy enclosure?? i would maybe think about that when the front mount is on so i can fit a cold air feed where the passenger side mount cooler would be.

    as said standard filter is good enough but if you go for a aftermarket panel filter,go for a dry filter like Pipercross rather than a oiled filter or you could end up with MAF problems

    yup its a weigh up between spending a few quid on a standard panel or a lot on say a K&N or pipercross.... question is are you going to change it that many times to make the cost up, id guess no in most scenarios

    Nice one guys.

    Im just looking to get abit more of an induction noise but dont want to mess around with induction kits when the standard airbox is sufficient. Does a pipercross or green cotton add any induction noise?

    Got the Neuspeed P-Flow kit and it looks alot better in the engine bay, DV sounds better and a nice little induction sound up to 3k untill the revo and miltek kick in But as said above only a very little differance in HP. Some say induction makes it slower but its actuly a little better and smoother in the rev range....

    Pipercross do a cleaning kit
    http://www.awesome-gti.co.uk/product...=10603&xSec=64
    That will help
    To be fair , myself all I do is run it for say 60k miles and then bin it and get another
    28 + VAT for the Pipercross one....I get better MPG so i just replace it

    Hi Sarah,
    Thanks for the info. Although I've got a dry filter panel, so not sure that kit applies, as it uses some kind of dirt retention oil.

    Hi
    yes , that is the only kit they do
    It has a cleaner it the kit , then just dont use the oil one
    Or just go for the cleaner
    The VAG ones are a dry filter , but you can use the oil IF you want
    Sarah
