Hi guys..as of now finally, I have gotten a K&N conical filter with a intake pipe installed. It does give me a boost in the power delivery after say 1500 rpm especially with the AC on and yes it does make a roaring sound which actually makes you feel that you are going faster even if you are not..

I dont have the pictures as of now but it cost me around 4700/- for the K&N conical filter and around 2200/- for the cold air intake pipe.

Seriously, I strongly believe that any alterations to the car other than those specified by the manufacturer will ultimately reduce its Engine life.

So long....

Not unless u've got very high performance mods, or mods done by someone who ain't a pro.

Airfilters & freeflows won't harm the engine all that much. But NOS will definately fry it
