Ok. Its almost 20 mins of your time, but you will realise that its ALL for the noise, and maybe a small reduction in power.
I'm only really doing for the noise, and the rumble/ burble which is unbelievable compared to stock.

However, would rather not be losing power!

Garage List
NJ 1161 I applaud doing this solely for the noise and its effect even if it does not help the BHP, because that's a big factor for how it feels in the car.
Could you record the car noise from outside, preferably with car passing by with some help of your mate, since I would be going for it, if it makes considerable difference considering diesels are quiet and passers doesn't realize it's power, unless they hear it, if u know what I mean. thanks,

Had a go, but sound not great on the video at all. Will attempt some more when get a chance. Sounds louder with more rumble really.

Anyhow,

And it's now a k&n filter meant for a 4.2 Audi s5 v8 so power handling should be ok and neck size closer.

Hi, ten minutes. Just unclip the top box, remove filter and replace with this one.

If you wanted a cheap test I have the blue one available I originally fitted for 15 posted.

That way test it and see if you like.
