Very handy. Shame the stock airbox and exhaust aren't covered, they're quite different on the Mk1s, haven't ever found much out about them.

 

all you need to know about the mk1 airbox is that its the best design going!!!

 

is basically a moxogen :)

 

theres no need to replce them, just add bigger cold air feeds and add a panel fiter :) no aftermarket induction kit will come close :)

Exactly what I thought after digging around with a torch for an hour yesterday.

 

Seems to me the exhaust is pretty special too. With a high-flow cat, it seems to be the business already.

Isnt the 182 the one with the better cat? A 100 cell cat as stock isnt it?

I saved all that stuff off, but the links as above^ should take you there.

The actual surface area of the Ph1 air-filter is huge compared to Ph2, being a cylinder (like a good-sized table lamp), not just a panel. The ph2 changes, acoustic valve etc seem to be for emissions, sound, more than performance. I've always been keen to mod one a Ph1 box with a bigger feed, but not like there are many around to play with and not going to risk my own.

Sound very noice with a Green Cotton filter in too.

Lovely howl at revs.

The cat is the big obstruction in a Ph1.

Bum-omerter seems to indicate good things with 100 cell cat + K-Tec Stealth.
