I got a 93 Corsa SRi 1.4 8v

Just wondered what the quietest induction kit is available for it, because it's loud enough already from the exhaust, and i don't really want/need it too much louder.

Cheers

why the hell do you want an induction kit then?
please dont say for power.
just replace the current filter with a uprated one and add a better cold air feed. dont drill it if you dont want noise.

What is an 'induction kit' ?

For ages now I've always thought it was just a performance filter with cold air being forced into it when you drive along ??

Is that right ?

Is it possible to somehow get a cold air feed into a standard air filter box ?

well yeah, for the power actually, mate shoved one on his saxo, say's it's better than ever now, so i was thinking that it does something.

So you're saying just shove a hose to somewhere where air gets in better, and change the filter to an uprated one ?

Kinda thing ?

Induction kits are purely for show. They suck in to much hot air due to there design. No amount of cold air feeds will stop that.

Get a performance panel filter and improve the intake pipe into the air box. This will give you the highest bhp gain and cost you the least!
