Has anyone fitted an induction kit or changed there panel filter on there TDI.

If so, can you notice much of a difference?

Also, which one have you installed?

I wouldnt install an induction kit - it wont work basically

a panel filter is the way to go and they do work well on the TDI's

i have a green panel filter (£38 i think) and i do think throttle response is a bit better, i also have a remap and miltek cat back exhaust on mine

also, come service time, you will have to buy a new paper one where as with an aftermarket panel filter you can service and clean it yourself

id go for a green one!

Ah! you've had the remap done, sure you were waiting the last time we spoke.
Which one did you go for?

Is yours a 140 or 170 Boydie?

Anyone know if a panel filter for the 140 will work just as well in a 170?

Yeah its a 140 - I will hopefully find out tonight what power the car is putting out this evening when I go to the rolling road!

I went for a local company remap - they have 100% positive feedback and i am very happy with it - cost £235 compared to revo's £499 plus mine was a local forum discount as well (usually £270)

hoping for 170-180bhp but if it doesnt reach that the guys will re-remap the car for me free of charge

as far as i am aware the 170 uses the same airbox as the 140 - the main difference between the engines is a DPF - deisel particulate filter (i think) and the ecu map

boydie - does this remamp company have a UK distributor? Still thinking about chipping my 170TDI.

Does the panel filter make much difference? Not sure if I'd want my 170 to be _even noisier_?!!

it wont get noisier - it will just let more air in!

no, they are just a local distributor for Northern Ireland but use a german company who change the stock maps on the cars - basically they copy the map from the car, email it to germany, they remap to stock map, email the new one back and then the company who i went to load it onto the car - simple!

as far as the 170bhp model is concerned, i dont think there are many, if any, safe maps for it yet!

I only have a 1.9 TDi (105bhp) but the K&N pannel filter has made a difference. Sounds and runs better. Cheap at 40 quid too!

What's the name of the German outfit and the Irish company you used? Just curious!

170 uses piezo injectors and has extra balancer shafts (whatever they are - according to steve184 in another post)

Damn you sir!:motz:

I had a CDA on my V6 Clio and it sounded awesome. And sold it with the car :sadlike:
On a V6 awesome but on a diesel *****.
I had a cone on my A4 and the diesel intake noise was horrible.It came straight off and i put the original box back on with the paper filter and i didnt notice any difference in performance.

sounds ok, its not as loud as i expected but you do get the BAHOOOOO noise if you know what i mean when you build the pressure up with the throttle

smokes a bit more since you are getting rid of the extra back box but not that bad!
