Just thought id put up a little update of my findings.

I've removed the slam panel to have it colour coded, and to my surprise their is a large snorkle pipe for the induction housing under the slam panel,
I always thought that the air was fed straight in to the airbox from the pipe directly in front of the induction box, I didn't realise it had such a distance to travel.
But the exhaust sounds better with the slam panel temperarely removed.
Which is causing me to consider removing the snorkle horizontal section to make it a straight feed but then if water got in I would be sorry lol.

I'd like to hear some thoughts from owners with petrol engines. How are you guys getting on with this filter?

purchased and fitted this filter.... no change in noise... no noticable change in power but when giving it some welly the gear change seems smoother... like when you change up a gear it doesnt struggle for air.... feels like there is no air restriction a car feels like it delivers power abit quicker... just my thoughts.
i have a 1.8 ltr petrol btw

its hard to say at the moe... ill wait to see what effect if any it has on the mpg. but like i said the gear change seems alot smoother so i guess thats got to be good for the car.
im happy i guess apart from the fact they sent to the billing address like a right bunch of plonkers, so i had to take the morning off of work to pick it up!!

Hi

With my car i have not noticed any difference at all ?

It has changed acceleration its a bit quicker

But at least i can actually clean this filter rather than wasting a tree (paper filter)

I Wish i could hear the turbo more :-(

I must admit my cheap universal filter, as time has gone on, is sounding better (not over-loud or rough, just nice).

Wondering if it's even worth changing it?

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I won't be buying one after the thoughts in this thread. It sounds like it has a better effect on the diesels.

You should find an increase in MPG mate, is that 44.6mpg on your signature correct?
Mine is 56.2Mpg and its not an ecoboost with flappy grill,
Its been mapped to 120bhp

So do you think the problem with the engine performance would be more at fault with the engine's ECU and not the actual Green Cotton filter in question.
Resulting in your negative review of the product to be invalid until your car is mechancialy proven to perform as an econetic.?

Just a thought.
