    Panel Filters

    Since i am selling the simota, i fancy trying a panel filter to see how much better they are if anything.

    Green Panel

    K&N Panel

    I Fancy the green filter out of the 2, But what would you lot recomend?

    I've always used replacement K&N's on my other cars, as they tend to filter better than standard paper elements. Power gains are probably a bit dubious, unless you compare to a used paper element. On the plus side, they hardly ever need cleaning (they work just as well when dirty) and it is one less thing to do at a service.

    Having looked at the green ones, I think the only difference is the colour!

    Default Filter Q

    Sorry to bring an old topic up, Is it really worth replacing the stock filter with a branded one such as K&N, Green or pipercross?

    Sound a pipercross filter for the 1.6 C2

    http://www.2modified.com/2003-piperc...er-p-9055.html

    Would i see any gains if any with any of the 3? i dont fancy a indi kit...

    I also heard that K&N dont offer 100 filtration like the stock one does

    found this if that helps.

    no bhp gains will be seen from a panel filter although its healthier for the car. The difference between a panel filter and an induction kit (be it closed or open) is noticable when combined with other mods.

    Quite recently I had a 4-1 manifold and straight through exhaust put on the C2....had a bmc on. Decided to try OEM airbox and must say that the OEM airbox feels better - more pull! Downside is that with the OEM airbox, top speed dropped by about 5mph! nicx
