Nothing better than the k&N Typhoon kit for the civic. Me and My Friend have the kit on our cars and there is a very noticeable difference in how both the cars perform. Highly recommended for all civic users.

Do you guys think I should order it online or will I get it cheaper in the shops in Chennai ? Any recommended shops for the same ?
The Price is good, Its the same price I picked up my filter from their dealer in Delhi Autopsyche.

My suggestion would be to go for a Green Cotton Storm which is a CAI. I too intend using it on my Fiesta 1.6. I plan ordering online from Pete's

Jaskirat,
From what I have read on the forum, Wind is for cars with less than 100 bhp and Storm is for ones greater than 100 bhp.

Planning to order it in a couple of days and get it installed as soon as the 2nd service is over

Fountainheader is right Green Cotton Wind is for cars which are 100bhp or lesser and Strom is for cars whose bhp is higher than 100.

I installed GC Wind in my swift vxi and there is noticeable difference. The price of the new of the GC wind (new stock feb09 onwards) is higher than what is currently shown in peteís web site but I got the new stock for the old price from the dealer .

Thanks for the update guys. I was under the impression that GC Wind was without heat resistant polymer.

I guess the confusion stemmed from the fact that I could not find the GC Wind on the Green Cotton website (cars filters, car induction kit, k&n green & pipercross filter, air filter - Waxacar Green Performance Air Filters).

Cheers

Default Review on Green storm

PADDY77@Guys i've a diesel swift, please recommend some good air filter, i've zeroed on GC wind. do you notice any difference while driving? i do not need a stock replacement filter.

I have been using the green storm filter since last 15 days on my Fabia TDI. I installed this with a custom 3 inch intake system. I also have a remap by custom code along with a decat. Earlier I was using replacement panel filter by K&N. My first few days with it, there was vast improvement in the pick up may be about 10-15% along with the decat and helped a lot on turbo lag. Virtually zero turbo lag. Who so ever drove the car said it din't feel like a turbo diesel but much like the petrol car. Uptil the 1000 kms i drove I got the same performance. She got much quicker acceleration. But I noticed a slight drop as the filter started clogging. Have driven about 2000 kms now with it. And there is a slight drop in the pick up and started to feel the turbo lag again. All this means is the filter is doing a good job of what it's suppose to do, filtration. Compared to the replacement I had which made marginal difference on the pick. The K&N would get clogged too but felt the pick up constant (no drop due to clogging) upto 3000 kms and use to clean it every 4000kms. Incase of storm I suppose since being a cone design and having better filtration property it is prone to get clogged faster. I guess for optimum result it would require cleaning once in every 2500-3000 kms. I have a lot of highway drive but I guess in city it would clogged lesser. In short when I had put the storm, it improved the low end and top end both. I suppose even the customised intake and decat plays the role here benefiting zero turbo lag. Also noticed that the smoke had reduced quite a lot compared to the stock replacement filter by K&N. K&N too made a difference in smoke as against the stock paper filter. But storm has improved it way better once again I suppose its also due to in conjunction to bigger intake pipe all the way till the turbo.
A must have filter with the advantage of dynamisation kit to aid the cold air most importantly.

The Dynamisation kit is about 2,050 now earlier it was 1750 earlier

So then the Sx4 would need......? Its a 102bhp, so thats not much higher than 100bhp. I'm guessing Wind would be the best bet right?

The K&N performance air filter was the first performance product for my engine. Once I changed it driving was a completely different experience.
Even though the performance doesn't increase much the sound in the car gives you an impression of substantially more power. I suggest everyone to go for it. HOWEVER you will rev your car more/harder so try and keep it down.
I'm thinking next should be spark plugs and headers. But money

Need little help here too. Could you please suggest one for my Palio GTX? I already have a FFE done by Viper and I read that a good filter compliments the FFE. Should I go for K&N or CAI? I'm in Pune and anyone in Pune who does a good job? Or is it better to take my car to Mumbai to get it done by experts? I could stretch my budget of 8-8.5K for the installation.

Will there be space for installation under the hood of GTX?

As you would know CAI i.e., Cold Air Intake systems are available from several suppliers including K&N, which makes Typhoon, Apollo etc., but my vote is for Green Cotton Storm. (Incidently this thread started as a comparative between K&N and Green).

I think you might have to stretch your budget a bit for a CAI.

Palio 1.6 GTX has plenty of space to squeeze in a CAI.

Hi Jaskirat, thanks for the suggestion. could you tell me by how much should I stretch my budget? I thought 8.5K would be more than sufficient :-(

And how much will me mileage drop to? may be to 7-8 kmpl(i'm getting 9-9.5 kmpl now with an FFE)
