    I'm tempted to suggest the panel filter, and drilling some holes in the airbox, but I haven't got personal experience of upgrading the induction on my 206 yet. You can get ramair style induction kits for it from Simota or somebody else whose name I've forgotton which come in guises especially for the 1.4 8 and 16v so that could be a good choice. Let me know what you go for and whether it yields any results

    To be honest which ever way you do it your not gonna get much gains. I'd go for an induction kit myself and get a good cold air feed direct to it. But like I say you won't see much gains. You should maybe think about getting an exhaust put on as well buddy.

    Sounds good. You need 10 posts to upload images buddy. Have a wander round the forum and get yourself up to 10 posts. ;)

    Just a backbox won't give you any performance gains tbh.

    i know it wont give me any power gains but it will give me a nice sound but with the right air filter i should see some kind of power gain even if it a 5bhp more surely

    You'll get a lot more noise. 5bhp is unlikely. The performance increase will be barely noticeable.
