I know there will be mixed views but all views would be amazing! I'm wondering if anyone one has put a cold air feed on the cts before and whether it made any difference performance wise I know it would be small but every little helps ;) and did it make a throatier sound?

Cheers o both of you! Love that filter but as ive just picked up a k and n panel I'm thinking about experimenting with some hosing leading down to where the horn is? I know what you mean about ctrs my cars used for work so I need a little bit of economy plus I can insure a boxster for the same price as a Ctr!!!!

You're on to something interesting there. You should get a noticable difference in performance although you wont get that lovely sound.

Things to consider....
The best place for a feed is the Wheel arch as its a high pressure zone. you should get a big difference by getting rid of all that garbage resonator and maze of plastic pipes.

Going to the grille I found the engine to be a tad sensitive and would sometimes cut out under harsh decelleration. I'd go with the grille as the first option. just make sure you secure everything properly. Foglight garnish maybe?

I was thinking remove the foglight mesh and have it there only thing I'm worried about is water and crap being dragged up into it! I'd love to do a little behind the grill modification and run it along the front only problem is is I have a Perspex grill :,( I know I know you feel for me aswell hahaha tbh all I want is a subtle roar when I leave silly 1.2 corsas at the lights but not too much as I've had all the loud roar before and now want a sleeper

Sadly enough I read that earlier :/ I was initially researching derestricting the air box as ie owned four vauxs and each I derestricted and the throttle response was better but after reading a thread about it and the stick the guy got for removing the air directional fins etc and the hundreds of negative comments I decided that wasn't a good idea plus relic backs this up I may try and get my hands on some cheap pipework in the future and have a play with a cold air feed! Keep an ear out for anyone with some old garden hose ;) hahah

I'm interested in this... So do you plan to put the tubing on the inlet of the oem air box and then simply run it down to the grill?

I know very little about this stuff lol, so can someone explain why the wheel arch is a high pressure zone? Surely a pipe with minimal bends from the fog light/grill area will allow faster/higher pressure air into the airbox?
