Induction Kit Opinions

So I'm currently torn between getting a simple K&N drop in panel filter, or a Auto Specialists Induction kit. I kno when I come to remap my car I would most likely get more gains with the induction kit.

The K&N is around £40, and the induction kit is around £150.

Apart from the nice little sound you get when you let off, is it worth spending all that money on an induction kit?

Thanks

Whats the induction kit, have you got a link?

If it is an open filter it could net you worse performance, especially as the 1.0 turbo is at the front near the airbox.

Induction kits sound lovely and if you're re-mapping the car aswell it will be beneficial. I have a panel filter in one of my cars and apart from saving money on air filters every service it dosent really do much for your 'inner-boy racer'

IMO Most inductions kits (although they look a lot better in the engine bay and sound nicer) the air filter would be better for performance. Always seem to lose a little hp through induction kit as opposed to the air filter.

Because most inductions are open and so just suck in hot air from under the engine.

As I said above, the 1.0 has it's turbo at the front and it gets very hot (hence the guard).
