    Hi all I'm new!

    I have a corsa D 1.4 petrol and I currently have a cheap halfords induction filter in it and have been told it will cause my engine to loose power due to my engine not needing forced air so I'm thinking of going back to a panel filter with an air box... Any suggestions?

    By induction filter do you mean something like a K&N 57i cone filter jobby? They're a good job as long as you have a good cold air feed coming to it rather than just sucking warm air from the engine bay. I don't care what anyone says, ANY engine will benefit from better breathing. Half a horsepower is still half a horsepower.

    as above get rid of the induction kit as the cheap ones will just be sucking in the warm air from your enigne. choice is yours if you want to go for a performance panel filter or just get the normal paper filters. on a small engine your never going to see a massive gain to need to weigh up is it going to be worth the cost?
    using mccrash's comment above half a hp is still a half hp. well if its costing you £40 for 1/2 a pony when you put that towards a remap, again your not going to see a massive gain but £200ish for maybe 8bhp is alot better money spent than £40 for something thats doing next to nothing. ether way flog your induction kit to someone else
