    This topic has been covered a few times, bottom line is the Induction/cone filters will not give you any more extra bhp (proven) The standard Filter and Airbox can cope.

    my solution was to get a BMC pannel filter rather than a cone, my 2.5 seems to run better this way,

    On the diesel just leave it standard, whip the airbox off and try running it like that and I bet you hate how noisy it is, it's not a nice noisy either lol.

    I had a green panel filter fitted when I had my car remapped at JBS.

    i was going to get a cone as well.. does make a cheeky turbo flutter sound when you come off the throttle..

    bit like this one.... i run a pannel filter because of the heat soak on modern cars you cant realy beat the air ducting or cooling unless you spend mega bucks (over £150) on a cold air intake.

    TBH mate when im tanking down the roads i cant hear anything else but my tunes, but all i know is my re-map loves the BMC panel filter and the car has a lot more poke in it, even in the summer when its hot!

    sorry to **** on your thread.. but does it make a huge difference when it has a remap, does it smooth out the flat spots and give you that surge of power? cheers andy
