Induction....i Want Some


Recommended Posts

Hey,

I can't seem to find an induction kit for my car, I know mellow_yellow was looking into a custom kit @ around £350 but I was wondering if I can get hold of one for £50-£70?

Never really considered fitting one before but I need a bit more power, ideally torque - i'm sick of being overtaken on the way to work!!!! :rolleyes: & my mate's fitting one onto his Rover Coup, can't let the side down! :D

Any help would be great, :)

Hmm!!!! :huh: :D Thats something to keep in mind, thanks, how much do you think that would cost with parts & labour?

For the time being though I need something cheaper, any ideas on the induction kit?

Am looking to do the same thing for my car, have you tried looking for an induction kit for a car with the same dimensions for the housing of your current filter, and seeing if that would work?

Hello mate, I'm going for something a bit different for my Rolla, by way of a universal induction kit from Ractive. They do a chrome version of their translucent filter and it looks quality! Has to be shipped from USA tho. But $88 all in is the price to pay. Try looking at www.carmedia1.com.

Good Luck,

you can fit pretty much any old cone filter to your intake, look at your arid box to see if it has any VSV's or any other sensors in it, then just get either a toyota corolla 4age late spec if it has or a Vauxhal Carlton one if it hasn't.

Dont get sucked in (excuse the pun) but the whole induction KIT thing as the kit only consists of a filter and a sticker and if your lucky a bracket LOL...

Are you on the Sera mailing list?

I have a 1.3 turbo Sera, lowered suspension, a single straight through exhaust.

Am getting carbon fibre bonnets made. Also indiglo dials.

The Sera induction system is on the whole, better than most - there is a cold air source. The route the air takes in and around the air filter is a bit convoluted, so this is where any improvements could be made.

Fitting a normal cone filter will often cause flat spots in the power curve as the engine warms - any benefit the cone filter gives is lost as soon as the underbonnet temperatures rise.

HKS will manufacture a universal Kit that would fit your car, it could cost a fair bit though I paid around £225 inc Vat and fitting when I had my Yaris T-Sport. Now I have got to do it all over again now with the Corolla. But it is worth it for the noise alone. :D

Damn, i've never met anyone able to pay the extortionate (IMHO) rates offered by TDI, they're the guys in Barking who reckon they can fit a turbo to my 4age ! like to see them try LOL, their upgrade stuff sounds good but the prices are way too expensive, they must be on £80 p/h labour or something.

NICK, If you buy the induction kit and bring it and your car to Southend i'll fit it for £10 on a saturday morn, its about a 10min job LOL.... :huh:

seriously though dont get ripped off for simple jobs i hate it when that happens to people its unfair, some people are just not mechanically minded or dont like getting their hands dirty, thats no excuse to take advantage of them. :censor: :eek::help:

Got some pics coming on soon just need to download them. If you own a sera and need some work on it (modifying) ive found a decent workshop called the dark side in essex now part of evolution he sees cars like the sera as a challenge and is a perfectionist. Is anyone up for havin a Sera meet in the not to distant future ??

Just put a pic of my exhaust system on not a good pic (taken wiv my phone)
