TBH it's not going to make any noticable difference in performance on a smaller engined car. You will get a nicer noise from your engine though.

I fitted a pipercross induction kit with cold air feed and it definatly picked up a little bit quicker :)

i went for the cheap option and drilled my airbox :twisted: which gave the sound i was after and it felt a bit quicker in the colder months but come the summer with the hotter air etc. the car was definately slower and overall i used much more petrol - i've since coved the holes in my airbox with cardboard (stuck on with glue) :oops: Don't know how an air filter would affect things though :shock:

Swop to shell optimax and change the panel filter, it will feel more responsive, but remember it's still a 1L 3 cylinder engine, with no get up and go!!!!
