If you want to go this route go rather for the BMC DIA.

The DIA is designed for smaller engines, and theres no point spending 150 quid on an air filter for an 8v

It isn't only cheaper than the smaller CDA it is also better.

What ever you will fit, don't use any convulated hose.

The DIA is only available in a version for engines up to 1600cc. My suspicion is the they do not want to make it at BMC for the bigger engines because they would loose quite a bit of profit.

I personally would rather spend the money on a proper induction tubing and a twin cone filter.

Just a twin cone filter with a long smooth tube to a fairly cold point under the engine bay.

Re: BMC CDA on mk2b 8v ?

Any point in ducting air fresh air in from somewhere at the front of the car?

If you have an open filter at the end of the induction tubing it will help a bit as long as the filter is in a rather hot area. Downfall is that it often soils the filter prematurlely, which lowers the efficiency. In an enclosed filter it is giving you certainly more cold air but evenly dirt and possibly water entry when linked to the filter.

Also, when the pipe isn't smooth it might more likely increase the drag coefficient of the car then duct air sufficiently. And obviously the Diameter is important too.

If the filter element is located in a fairly cold part of the engine bay and not shielded from air entering like in the Mazda MX5 additional ducting isn't necessary.

Thanking you kindly (as they, supposedly, say in Canada)

Ohh nice Oldschool knowledge, useful to know in face of a philosophical disagreement with custard about cold-air routing.

Re: BMC CDA on mk2b 8v ?

It is a few pence under 100. All you get with it is some jubilee clips and a dodgy convulated flexible aluminium pipe. To make it work properly you need some proper tubing done either yourself or by a specialist. Otherwise you better off sticking the cheapest twin cone filter on the end of the sdame sort of pipe, which is a fraction at the cost.
