Wot happy-kat said. Fancy go-faster filters are as likely to decrease performance as increase it.

If you only wanted to ask the best way to make your car noiser you should maybe have phrased the question more carefully mellow.gif

I've just got a Green Cotton panel filter for my car and the quality is impressive. I haven't fitted it yet, though.

Mines just fitted with a standard K&N paper filter, frees up airflow and lasts for 100k too.

personally if I was with my old Puma I would do the FRP air box mod and change the exhaust system. Would also get you more noise and a decent exhuast sound biggrin.gif
