Just been searching for an Induction Kit for a sei sprting on the net and came across these BMC Air Filters, they claim to give you more bhp ranging from a 3 to 15.

Are they work the money or should I just stick with the normal kits.

I would say that they're very good, but probably not worth the money! I have one on my 98R Sei Sporting, and there's a real increase in torque (right from 1500rpm), flat spots are gone and it breathes much easier higher up the range. Looks the absolute nuts too.

However, performance per £ I guess isn't that great. Boomy on motorway hills too...

Cheers,
Darren

I might have to save up for one of these then, i'll make do with the standard airbox for the time being, I might even try to fit my old Uno induction kit onto it.

Hi...

I’m thinking on Ractive air filters with a steel induction pipe added to a silicone 90º Turn…

What do you think about it?

i have a K&N induction kit fitted and love it to bits

as far as performance per £ goes - lets be honest when you start with 54Bhp you take all the extra you can get ;)

The plenum (black plastic cover) is from an 899cc cinq, they bolt straight on.

One more thing, which is the exterior diameter of the plenum?
The ractive filter interior diameter is 3” our 76 mm I probably have to use a silicone redactor in the end of the induction pipe to connect it to the plenum, it is true!!!
