Gen 5 - Induction kit

Post by andy50herts » Wed Feb 27, 2019 7:33 pm

I have been toying with the idea of fitting an induction kit to my gen 5 2.2vti

I tried a couple of kits on my old EP3, it was the sound they made that made it addictive, rather than any extra (if any) performance

Any suggestions on what I should go for ?

Panel filter ?
proper induction kit ?
or, stick to standard ?

Thanks in advance

Popular choice is a type s/H22a8 airbox with a panel filter. It's quite hard to get hold of although they do pop up every now and then.

AEM v2 is the popular choice for induction kits :thumbup:

If anyone has the standard lower airbox (in the wing/bumper area) id like one - mines been removed and the extra noise is just annoying.

Pretty sure I have one from one of my breakers - I'll check.

I'll go for the AEM V2 I think, I did enquire about someone breaking a type s 2.2, however, the air intake hose, although different to mine, didn't appear to be the same as the jdm type s' that I have seen pictured
