    Default pod filter 206 gti 180.

    Thinking tomorrow I'm going to spend the day removing my air box and resonator leaving a cavity in the engine bay to run a steel tube from the throttle body down near the wheel arch topped with a k&n pod filter. Has anyone done this. Im more concerned about performance difference rather than method I'm able to remove all air box and resonator.

    Yeah I'll take some photos as well. I'm going out for day drinks at 2 so I hope I don't leave the thing in pieces cause that would mean a very late arrival to work on monday haha. Any idea on how low I should bring the filter down?

    G'day Matt,
    none whatsoever. Sorry.
    I was thinking of the same myself, until I saw the method. There is another set of instructions, I think on the K & N site.

    My main concern is water splashing it. But I don't want to draw it up too high as to not get any cold air and defeat the whole purpose of the operation.

    I'm also thinking whether to just put in a k & n flat panel filter replacement in?

    Thanks for that I've been looking for the damn second page of those instructions. Speaking to a guy at auto one today who reckons the typhoon kit is about 600-700 bucks which is a bit out of my price range. Also those instructions have made me a little bit doubtful. Iwas unaware of the vacuum. I suppose I can just buy a k&n pod filter and then buy my own tubes and rubber caps.

    I don't think it will be a day I had to reconnect the resonator yesterday when I knocked it loose trying to have a bit of a gander at the induction system. Hmmm also I'm wondering about whether I will need to mount the tubes to anything to stop it from moving.

    Decided I think I'll whack a panel filter I'n cause a k&n typhoon kit I was told at auto one is 6-700 bucks. So I think ile remove the snorkel for some extra noise and see how it impacts on performance. Then whack in a k&n panel filter direct replacement for the standard airbox.

    Just got out the snorkel took me ten minutes with a good jack and I didn't remove the wheel. How ever it will take alot longer to put back on. It seems to give it a more throaty brute sound opposed to the refined standard sound and still has access to a cold air supply. It also feels a tiny bit quicker I got a tiny wheel spin when I put my foot down and gave it the beans even with the traction on. Hopefully by the arvo the k&n filter will arrive and can whack that in. I'll let you know how it goes.

    To start off, I don't mind noise (I removed my rear seats for weight saving).

    However, in my 206 GTi (non vvt) I removed the resonator and now just have about 1 foot of piping going from a pod filter to the throttle body. It is incredibly loud. About as loud as a fart can exhaust, but thankfully not that low drone. The pickup seems a bit better over the supercheap stock replacement filter that was in there wen I bought the car, and was quite sooty. I have to say I'm not going back to stock despite the noise, but bear in mind my engine uses a curly wurly plastic intake manifold which would absorb a bit of that induction roar.

    Ok so k&n panel filter is I'n doesn't sound like a hoon car just sounds like a performance induction not too loud and only Kicks I'n at 3000rpm. In terms of performance overall I reckon the snorkel coming off gave a bigger difference. However still worth your while cause k&n are a lifetime guaranteed filter so no matter the result u still save money. Cumulatively I spent about 20 min and 100 bucks doing this tho the filters are much cheaper to order online if u don't mind the wait.
