Default Green Cotton Filter : Viva CRDi

As an addition to my recent acquisition of the Pete's Box for my Accent Viva CRDi, i am looking forward to changing the air filter thereby allowing the engine to breathe a bit more easier. I have honed down my choice to Green Cotton stock replacement filter ( Rs.4200 ) or Green Cotton Storm Filter (Rs. 5850).

Now the latter which is a part of a complete CAI kit, can only be fitted as is and no induction pipes as it seems it is not possible to do within the Accent's engine bay as there is no space, everything is already put together so tightly ( tried it in a friends car).

So does it make sense to go for a Storm even if no piping is changed? or just stick to the replacement one?

Though this topic may have been discussed to death, i still would like to get inputs from users regarding their experience, What to expect and not expect et.all. I am planning to get this done over this weekend

TIA for your inputs!

IMO if your not going to install the cai piping then theres no point in buying a cai.

Default Green Cotton Air Filter

Hi friends

I am on the look out of a Green Cotton Air filter for my Verna CRDi. It is available in market. I checked 2 to 3 shops in trivandrum and it seems like it is not available and only K&N is out there everywhere.
Any idea on which is best?

Cheers
Pradeep

If you are interested in Green cotton, PM turboindia and he will courier it to you. Will the K&N guys in TVM fit a green cotton for you? Both are good filters. If you are planning for a replacement filter, i suggest K&N.

There was no piping change in the Swift as well when i got myself a Green cotton Wind filter.
It has made a huge difference over the stock filter.

And performs very well with the Petes Box as well.

I would happily recommend the CAI.
