    To be honest I wouldn't bother, it's not going to do anything to benifit the car because it's a diesel so would have to be controlled electronicaly.

    Diesels dont have a throttle plate, so there is never any excess pressure to dump anyway.

    No point at all on a DERV, it's on a par with fire alarm snooze buttons and chocolate fire guards for usefullness

    How you mounted that up as the airbox sits on the top of the engine with little space presume it's a 1.6 hdi dv6 90/110bhp ?

    If you put a cone filter on it you will hear the turbo spooling up better.

    Not really, once your moving the bay will stay pretty cool.

    My cone filter gave me 1bhopal over the standard airbus. LoL. That sort of difference can be down to almost anything.

    I did put one on my 1.9tdi for about 30minutes, was to loud with it on and not a nice loud so standard filter went back on, strange though because I used to have a 1.9tdi 110 Bora and that sounded pretty nice with the cone filter on it and from what I know they are the same engine.
