I've been driving with this K&N kit for a few months now and it's pretty good but not any different as all the other handmade solutions I have seen and used. Sound and just a bit more power in mid revs is pretty much the same as the other kits.

I am using Partnr: 57-0669 K&N 57i Kit: 1.0L without ESP, 63mm throttle housing
Dyno results next week.




Add 3 or 4 mm extra spacers under the saddle bracket as the filter is very close to the engine.This will give is a bit more room.

    Please let me know a.s.a.p if it really makes a difference. Don't want to go and waste money unnecessary. Thanks

    unfortunately it won't make difference without f.e. changes with exhaust. This kit will only make changes in sound of engine.

    I think it gives a bit more in acceleration as well. And a great sound :-)

    I've only had it in for about 2 weeks though.

    Why did you order this kit?
    I thought you already have an induction kit fitted on your 107.

    I need to be able to answer everyone's questions ;-)

    And

    My home made version is good but this one fits allot better.

    how much does this kit cost, and does it come with a brather filter and a engine cover?- to go over were they old air filter was
    also will it fit on modles with a/c?
    Guido said...
    € 185,-
    Don't know what a "brather" filter is.
    It does not come with a cover for the old fiter.
    Yes it will fit if you have an A/C
    Jake s said...
    sorry a "breather" filter :P typo :)
    Guido said...
    No thisone connects the breather to the main filter through a tube. This is actually how it's suppose to be.

    If you look at the original engine cover filter you see that it connect the breather also to the main filter tube.

    Did you already fit the kit?
    How are the results?
    Guido said...
    It's on the car and it's pretty much the same result as with the old one except this one makes more noise.
    Little bit more power mid and high revs but very very minimum.

    Pos: it fits pretty good, this is the best solution I've seen.

    Neg: the price and noice it makes.

    Be careful K&N has two kits, make sure you get the right one part nr: 57-0669 the other one has a 50mm tube which doesn't fit.

    i fitted this kit on my C1 2 month ago. it was maybe the first ever mounted on a C1, before being on sale in stores. i received it as a gift from K&N. they send it to me beacause in april i returned a flat K&N filter. that flat filter has a design fault: it does not fit perfectly in the airbox and air leaks can appear, making dangerous dust enter inside the engine.
    so i mounted this free kit.
    BUT, it has a BIG problem. if the filter is tighten to little on the hose, it falls down do to high engine vibrations. if is tighten a little more, it will simply deform, letting dust pas through. so this way i destroyed the filter. they should make the filter from steel, not from plastics. K&N sucks...

    I had a custom K&N fitted back in june, it was all crafted out of metal piping, which has worked very well, it uses a standard cone filter and a rubber pipe from the small outlet on the cam cover, it did make a difference, i have also had an exhaust fitted, i have the petrol 1.0i and it makes it sound quite good. If people would like more information/pictures just post under here and I will see if i can get some uploaded to the site?

    I'd be interested, any performance upgrades that work are good to see :)

    Does anybody know how much this kit costs? Don't mind if it's in euros or other currency.

    Sorry for the double comment - do you have a video or something to show the noise increase? That'd be quite good if you could do one :)

    Cheers,

    can any1 actully say that the induction kit is well worth the money, cuz i put a K&N panel filter and a air duct from the front of the car to the intake and anything after 30mph the power definatly increases. so would an induction kit give me better performance?
    Anonymous said...
    Probably, if you noticed gains with just a panel filter and duct... I'm guessing the duct would shift the power band a little, but neither would give noticeable power increase...

    Maybe get it dyno'ed? I was contemplating the kit, but I'm not gonna fork out £95 for something that doesn't affect the power - though if you got the cash floating around do it anyway just for the noise!! :D

    Has anyone got a recording of the noise? I can't find one on youtube anywhere, it's rather annoying! I want to see if it's as loud as people say...
    Guido said...
    It's a bit hard to record but take it from me it's like having your exhaust under the hood.
    Anonymous said...
    Guido do you know of anyway to move the air sensor from the airbox onto the induction pipe at the intake or an adaptor?
    Guido said...
    no sorry. Also why would you do that?
