    After fixing my mates 1.8t audi a3 2001 dodgy MAF sensor (busted by k&n 57i) and giving the motor a full service I'd like to know what's the best performance panel filter for it?

    The standard one isn't restrictive unless you're producing 300+ bhp IIRC

    Would a viper induction kit not be any good? Same as BMC one but smaller iirc?

    Got the standard drilled airbox on mine with a Pipercross Panel.

    Does the trick.

    BMC is considered by some to be a little restrictive, so I'm guessing something even smaller is not going to be any better!
