b9 berlingo k&n air filter
happy new year to everyone,
has anyone fitted a k&n replacement air filter  to a b9 1.6 110 diesel berlingo?
had good reports plus waste of time

regards michael
Yes, I did.  The engine seems a little more responsive, but don't expect big improvements.  Sorry for my bad English ... Rolleyes

I wouldn't bother mate, little or no gain for a big outlay. Put the money towards a remap. Then you'll see a big big improvement.

Yes, I fitted a K&N when the standard filter was due for replacement & mucky. I also fitted a Bluespark CR Tech 2 plug in performance chip, which I felt made a substantial difference overall with the two items. I don't have the HDi 1.6 Van anymore and removed & sold the chip separately. The filter I just left in situ.

I've always been a fan of K&N filters but it's been years since I did a Dyno before and after test (on a Mk3 Escort) where it added about 4BHP from the filter.

The chip and filter combo didn't hurt the van/clutch/etc over about 50,000 miles.

I chose the plug in type chip so I could fit the bypass whenever it might "need" it for MOT reasons etc, but as the van actually improved in MPG, it was probably an unnecessary precaution.
Good judgement comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgement…
