#415125 Air Induction Kit

Posted by artscot79 on 30 September 2014 - 06:55 PM

no all they do is make a noise and lose power as they suck hot air in from under the bonnet even with a cold air feed it requires the car to be moving to get the cold air so at lights etc you just suck hot air stick to the standard set up
