Performance Air Filter
#1
Anyone played with the air filter on a Mk.2, especially the 1.6 HDi?
As we all know any engine benefits from breathing easily and there seems to be a lot of pipework and travelling the air has to do to reach the engine.
Realise that the Berlingo is not a performance vehicle, and not trying to make it one.
Has anyone got rid of all that (unnecessary?) pipework and fitted a high-flow filter such as a K&N or Pipercross? Or an induction kit?
Would the trouble and expense have any benefits?
Just a thought...

I have a Powermax folter on mine. It has made no difference to MPG. Performance wise, if there is a difference it isn't noticeable, but on lifting off the accelerator for instance when changing gear, the revs take a little longer to drop off.

Induction wise we have discussed this before, it is far from the ideal routing for the airflow but space is tight to do much with it. My other thought has been that as it is forced induction is it a critical issue? As long as the turbo has availability of sufficient air it will suck all that it needs. Make sense?

K&N do an induction kit for 1.6 HDi.
About £110.00.
Wondering if anyone had experience?
Worthwhile, or waste of time (and money)?

Hi Coco,
Can't find a Powermax filter anywhere?
Suggestions?

let me know how you get on guys please, I spent over £100 on k&n filter on my 2.5 VW Camper [converted to lpg] and was told after fitting you couldnt use k&n filters with lpg, what a waste of money, even though I had spoken to k&n first before ordering. So I am very reluctant to spend more money with them.....

Pipercross.
Thanks, Coco.
See what I can find out.
And to Pete,
Why no K&N with LPG?
Can't understand why not?
It's an air filter...

Still can't understand, Pete.
LPG is a flammable compressed gas. And petrol is a flammable liquid
Will try and investigate....
And what is the official difference between flammable and inflammable?
Are they not the same thing?
Wiki dictionary thingy gives same definition to both words; capable of burning.
Why use 11 letters, when 9 will do?
Unless you are playing Scrabble, of course!
Sorry.
Answered my own question.
Isn't the internet wonderful....

when checking it was a 2,5 petrol fuel injected engine converted to lpg. Same engine as audi quatro, 5 cylinder job, hope that helps. Maybe somethin with lpg computer programming. No idea but couldnt risk expensive engine failure so dumped it.
