hi twincle, yes that is right i went on wykipedia after i posted but i'm sure i read that the two engines were different  Undecided

some say that a panel filter is better than a full out induction kit i put a K&N cone filter on my galaxy it improved my throttle responce but not great deal i've since gone back to the standard air box.

i have to admit the galaxy induction system isn't the best as there's no real way getting cold air to the filter. Huh?

I've been having a little look at the cold air induction side of things lately and I recon that if you remove the filter box and the slide out pannel behind the drivers side headlight there is plenty of room to manoever a flexi pipe through to the lower grille area next to the front fog lamps to scoop in cold air to feed the cone kit.

What difference does having the cone kit fitted opposed to a performance pannel filter make? if any?

fitting a cone filter will do prity much nothing because, what happens all the hot air in the engine bay get sucked into the un incloded filter, and hot air going is is a bad thing, will reduce performance. Even putting a cold air feed wont help that much.
If you want a cone filter, an inclosed one is what you need, like the pipercross viper or green twister these defo work and give good gains for an airfilter.

Or as most of the perfomance ford are now doing, using the standard air box with performance panel filter, you drill holes in the airbox (not big holes) so it can suck in the extra air, but its also still protected from heat as its in the air box. this is a cheap yet good gain.

what about fitting a cone filter inside the air box which I've seen done before will this make any improvements over just a replacement panel filter?

I know any gains will be minimal anyway if this is the only mod that is done, but I'm just curious as to the purpose of the cone filters - are they just more for show or are they actually more efficient than a flat panel filter? Also, will any extra air coming in be counteracted by the ECU adjusting fuel flow from the figures being fed to it by the MAF? I'm in a questioning mood today Scratch Chin LMAO

hi Cepheus,
              i think a rolling road day is in order Shocked but i did read in performance or fast ford i can't remember they did a test on a ford focus 1.8 zetec and found the best results were from a panel filter in a drilled air box.

all i've done is drilled my airbox and put the holes nearest the inner wing on the curved bit on the bottom of the airbox so that it breathes in extra air away from the hottest part engine bay, it appears that my throttle responce has improved very slightly with  bit of  induction roar.

the only effects on the maf is that the ecu or ecm senses that there is more air and adjusts the mixture accordingly i.e richer thus getting slightly better performance.

hope this is of help..

I would definitely recommend LongLife to anyone thinking of getting a custom built S/Steel exhaust.  Firstly they are made from better grade s/s than all the other so called performance exhaust manufacturers (after 4 years on my Rover it still polishes to a gleaming shine).  It is also guaranteed for as long as you keep the car and you can choose whatever tail pipes you want.  It takes about 5 hours, but well worth it.

Reading the posts in this thread about induction kits, have people declared these to their insurance companies?  Lips Sealed  I currently pay approx double the usual price to ensure all my mods are taken into account.
