    the gti has a flexible intake tube at the bottom of the air box which originally tucks restrictavely up into the front guard. ijust rerouted it so it recieves better intake.the standard 206 has a slightly different air box at the bottom as for measuring imprvovements i guess i could say that my throttle respone has improved.i also have a straight through muffler.not that they are major but my dash computer tells me my average consumption is around 7.4 litres per100 city cycle is as good as astandard 1.4 206

    i got a BMC carbon Dynamic air induction from Harding European. I am well impressed with their gear. they have a good setup there.

    I have noticed throttle response is abit snappier and i have a direct "ram air" induction happening, whihc means my piping runs directly from my front bar to straight to the BMC. as shown in the last pics where you can see the piping throught the mesh

    by having a direct re-rout ie ram air - wouldnt this potentially change the settings for the engine meaning the amount of air to fuel consumption is buggered? so did you install a pod filter thus bi passing the panel filter?

    thats the job of the air flow meter or map sensor.as for pod filters they are drawing hot air from your engine bay and decreasing your power.

    no.but apod filter is drawing hot air which is circulating around your engine bay.just think the cooler the air the denser the oxygen thus more power.eg does your car run better on ahot day or acool night

    nope.......

    esscargo make a kit for the 206... could be worth a look!

    <img src="http://www.esscargo.com.au/assets/images/206_GTi_air_Intake_3.jpg" alt=" - " /> this might give you an idea of a pod filter sitting in your 206

    <a href="http://www.esscargo.com.au" target="_blank">www.esscargo.com.au</a> for more of their stuff

    or <a href="http://www.bmcairfilters.com" target="_blank">www.bmcairfilters.com</a> for the one i have!

    also my BMC doesn't affect my warrenty at all! NOr would a POD filter. All you are doing is helping your car breathe better.... making it not so restrictive!

    just been reading your posts.about filters. over here if you fit a filter its a,what you call a pod filter. with a duct routing cool air from the front of the car to the filter. giving the usual improvements and induction noise. check out k&ns 57i induction kits. <a href="http://www.demon-tweeks.co.uk." target="_blank">www.demon-tweeks.co.uk.</a>
