hi erm... i know i posted a similar topic recently, but someone else has been pissing me off... lol

basically he reckons he knows a lot about cars, and says by slapping on a basic K&N 57i induction kit on to any car will increase the car by 10bhp i reckon more like 5bhp! maybe 10bhp if it was being used with a full exhaust system, but no way on its on, 10bhp for 40 just aint realistic! please tell me im right because this guy wont get off my back... lol, cheers guys

All cars r differant sum respond well to induction kits others dont. Realistically ur lookin @ around 3bhp with a panel filter and abt 5bhp with induction kit. and yeah as a general rule u get 10bhp with induction kit and exhaust. 106 GTi/saxo vts respond really well to induction kits too.

K&N also admit their 1.2 8v induction kit reduces power... so I've heard anyways...

Legal note if K&N read this: The above is just a rumour and I have no hard evidence
