induction kit is a pod shaped foam or cotton construction through which air passes to reach the inlet. air filter sits in the normal filter box housing

air filter is prob just a replacement element and will cost about 30 for a K+N

induction kit is a replacement air box basically and will cost twice as much

on a corsa neither will make much difference unless added with lots of other parts

45 for a K&N. 30 for a Pipercross.

When you say "much difference" I'm assuming you're on about power... because an induction kit on the Corsa certainly improves throttle response and gives a nice induction note.

why do you need to extend the pipes

an induction kit replaces your airbox just bolts straight on

Corsa's have flat spots engineered into them by the factory. People confuse "flat spots" with cars that are generally shite.

seriously? dude, extending the length of the inlet tract by that much probably wont help performance much at all. Let the air come to the filter, not the other way around. Also, it would get a whole lotta crap on it and you would be forever cleaning it in the dump that is the UK
