You will get a flat spot because hot air is being drawn in. Only thing you can do is get some tubing going to the cone from the front of the car, similar to what I used to have on my old Corsa, with a K&N cone filter:

deep ...it was...but a constant tone just getting louder as revs increased. I thought a induction kits was meant to give an induction 'roar'.

ppl laughed at the sound me car produced ....along with that horribe 'buzzin'f noise. Other than that i think the car is ace

Well i've got the BFO and a sebring backbox, you can't really hear the shitty buzz noise of the engine anymore. I'm getting the centre section for my exhaust soon hopefully so it'll be even louder

depends....u got a good sence of humor??
IMO it is the worst car i have ever heard with an induction kit. Clio, puntos bigger engined corsa...much better!

I am jus going to get a full exhorst...won't even hear the induction then

i think you sxi owners should drill your standard boxes instead, cause the sound you get outa an induction kit is really crap.

and lets face it, you buy an induction for noise only.

DAVE....... On the pic its a K&N not the BFO.... I have the BFO too an i am struggling to sort a cold air feed as it fills up the whole gap left by the airbox, may jus go back to panel filter an drilled airbox... If u drill it properly an get a K&N panel filter it sounds nearly the same as the BFO..

i have a k&n universail cone......just took the top of my air box off + the paper element. stuck the cone on the end of the inlet.......

cost me 30 and sounds way better than any 80 induction kit on a C.

the bottom of the standard airbox acts as air flow.......you dont need shit loads of pipes running all over the show..

at the end of the day, it's a 1.2...

The engine in my old Corsa was actually a 1.2 16v, hence why there was lots of room!

BTW if your engine has a Siemens SimTec ECU, you will not be able to reset the ECU like you can on engines with Multec/Motronic ECUs. The only way it can be reset is by Tech2 at Vauxhall.
