I fitted the Forge induction kit to mine to replace the standard air filter which had started to distort, it is also less restrictive than the standard airbox. This kit also has a metal intake hose as part of the filter housing, replacing the existing plastic intake which eliminates any potential air flow restriction caused by the hose walls being sucked inwards by the turbo. The heat sheilding around the filter is also very effective, thus keeping the air intake temperatures lower. I have so far found that the induction kit combined with the larger intercooler has lead to a small gain in performance, and improved fuel consumption with on average an increase of approx 2mpg.

Former AGP, 500 and APE owner. Miss them all.
