    Ive not seen a cone air filter on a disel yet, was wondering if its because they done make them or that there useless? Just a curiosity question would it improve performance much compared to the restricted standard air box?

    I'm sure I have read on here that you get no gains from fitting one

    Diesel runs on excess air anyway. Pointless fitting it and it'll sound like a tractor. Unless you like that sort of thing.

    I put a cone on my transit a few years ago and was so noisy with that induction noise that diesels make, wouldn't bother if I was u!

    There has been a thread were someone done it to a 130 tdi and all it done was turn it into a horrid deep loud droning noise, pull the box apart then try it....
