About 70 odd quid i should think, or you could drill your airbox, and put an aftermarket filter in!

Potentially you can get increase BHP from drilled air box and high flow filter, but you will only find 1 maybe 2 more horsies.

Defeats purpose of drilling box mate!! The air filter is there to remove dust. Just make sure you drill the box BELOW the filter, it has been known for some to drill above the filter, creating the problem you speak of!

look in the guides section mate, i done 1 in their on drilling air boxes

anyway u drill below the air filter, if u take the top off the air box u see the air filter, then look on the outside of the box and ull see a line going across, this is the line u must drill below, not above

this is cos the reason u have a air filter is to filter the air, if u let air in above the air filter it goes straight into the inlet manifold unfiltered = not good
