Link:http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=380321039478&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

I am very interested in fitting this to my car but as i have a 1.6TS and the link states 2.0 would it matter if i fitted it or is it universal fit across all engine sizes?

any help or suggestions please.

Thanks for the help, i will buy it today. will it make a difference to my cars performance? Sound?

I recently fitted a Raggazon back box and the noise is subtle but it is still a nice rumble.

Thanks for the link i might just get that one instead, question? do they have a lifetime as the K&N one. or do i need to replace it at intervals?

just wash it with strong lorry degreaser every few months (service time) and DO NOT oil it with anything. that is all. it should last many years.
