i have a bfo on my 1.2 8v. All i can say is get one. its sounds so good. Power wise there may be a little decrease in power only noticable when starting off after being stopped in traffic

it will loose your car acceleration as it does not maintain the pressure that use to be created in the old box. thats why most people just drill the box

very much doubt it on a 1.2 8v. i may be wrong though. i would certainly wouldnt say no to viper if one came up at the right price though

i have just had my car on rolling road with a viper and there was approx 10 bhp increase

buttttttttt

i had a good chat with the guy and he said it really is a performance filter. at the end of the day no disrespect to 1.2 owners but u really arnt goin to gain any power that just isnt there sorry

but if its for the right money then go for it

the only sound it makes is a whistle from the air intake pipe as it sucks air in

i have heard viper's are not loud. As kerry said they are a performance filter so the emphasis is on power increase rather than noise. The bfo is loud cos its f**king huge. My guess for power increase-u would be lucky to get 2bhp (if that) judging off what kerry got off her 2.5 v6

in my opinion get a decent air feed to ure air box and a decent panel filter if u want optimum air intake

if u want noise drill ure airbox or get a bfo
