I bought my brand new k&n induction kit and got it through today.

I was wanting some feedback from people about how their kits were fitted and maybe a guide to fitting them on the corsa c.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Forgot to say, any pictures of induction kits under the bonnet will be the biggest help. If any of you have pics of your engine bays paost them here.

Fitting the kit isn't too bad, fitting the cold air feed is harder!

I know they are east to fit, it just there is a sensor on the intake pipe just after the air box but before the engine.

just need a pic to compare my efforts with so it puts my mind at easy........... :roll:

easy to do. chuck the old standard airbox and filter out. removing the air feed too.

undo one of the engine bolts mount thingies and attach the bracket. stick it altogether... locate a spot for cold air feed, i used to have mine in front of radiator.

easy job to do, you can even do it blindfolded... ;)

Don't know if it should have, but fitting one wouldn't go amiss I would have said. :)

You know the pipe that attached to the old airbox coming from that plastic thing at the front, was that the air feed? and would it be better to leave the pipe attachment so that air is directed at my filter??

or is it pointless?

Some would say pointless and get rid of it, personally I would say leave it as it can't really do any harm as a cold feed. :D

I left that pipe in. Its attached to a scoop that sits behind the front grill so technically its going to feed nice cold air to my well positioned filter. I managed to get it pointing straight at the filter and i have also used my mates spare samco hose as another cold air feed from the radiator aswell.

The car sounds alot better now.

I had one minor glitch though. There was flat spots all through the rev range for about 3 minutes of driving the car. I reckon the ECU was sorting its self out making the air to fuel mixtures fine again. I am guessing that was the case (after all i am doing a masters degree in mechanical engineering at university) so i should kinda know whatz happening hahaha.

After those 3 minutes of near heart attack material the cars running great!!!!!!!

Cheers for all the help guys!!!!
