    Default Cold Air Intake

    Hey guys,
    What's the best/most popular CAI for a Peugeot 206 180.
    I've heard the K&N Typhoon Kit seems to go alright but by judging by this video (206 RC K&N Intake - YouTube), it seems to sit at a strange position.
    Is the best option to buy from the net/ebay?
    Cheers

    Hi, I dont intend to stop your hopes and dreams but your only paying for sound. KN is the most popular, there are also green cotton panel filters around, viper induction kits etc. have a read: The Peugeot 206 GTI Page

    there are a few on ebay, from US/ europe - so costly

    G'day,
    I tend to agree. The 180 is reasonably fast, and surprises a lot of other cars.e.g. a certain little Jap/Korean bug with a large enough exhaust to walk into, last seen in my mirrors diminishing in the distance. Once it gets above 3,000 rpm it rockets to all sorts of illegal speeds. But, don't do it on the public road.
    Have a look at The Peugeot 206 GTI Page , how to change a headlight globe. Not really a roadside operation.
    regards,
    Les W.

    Did I do anything last night that suggested I was sane?

    ARB do a range of snorkel kits that will see you good in the deepest of puddles.

    Maybe check up on the legality of fitting one in your state, too. I believe that certain forms of intakes & pod filters are defectable.

    Could you please put the standard stuff in the boot so I can put it back on when I buy the car?

    Almost anything part of your car can be defected.

    A cop is not an engineer nor an RTA inspector, and some of the defect notices I've seen clearly illustrate a lack of understanding.

    They dont seem to care, and give dodgy defect notices anyway. My mate in his mx5 got defected for having an atmospheric vented blow off valve.
    I looked and looked, but bugger me if i could find any evidence of forced induction.

    The real test comes when you need to clear the defect at an authorised inspection station.

    I was defected for no front carpet. The "defect" was cleared online by a pink slipper; cost me $20.

    Frankly, I'll cop all the $20 pings happily in exchange for the times they don't catch me using up the road.

    I'm quite happy to receive none of the above.

    It is quite remarkable that I've never had a cop give me a defect.
    One has tried, but my paper work out ranked his paper work, much to his anger.
    The blue slip issued from the RTA ( back in the old days) was valid for another 14 days which pretty much made the car un-defectable for that period.
