    No you wouldn't mate - just get yourself a nice back box or something if you are looking a bit of noise!

    Thanks Boydie but I was more thinking about the performance enhancement they say it will provide?!

    Well its going to cost you £105 for an air filter that may give you about 2-4bhp at best... its up to you.

    The benefits will be minimal and not noticable

    You could go full hog - intake, manifold back full system exhaust and a custom remap but you will only get aroun 15-20bhp at the most!

    I'm getting bored with saying this now but unless you want to coat your MAF with oil and kill you performance forget K&N unless your running carbs ...

    I agree, I'd avoid any oiled filters too.
