MG MGF Technical - Air Filter
|Is there anyway to make the standard MG TF 135 (2003) air filter better?|
i.e.taking the cold air feed to one of the side air intakes?
|Running a feed to the vent will ensure a good air flow along with replacing the filter with a uprated pannel filter. This is the way to go if you do not want to start chopping about in the bay. But if you want a proper filter then go with KN, Taipan or Pipercross after market modifications.|
|I was thinking about fitting a ITG Panel Filter.|
Are these any good?
Any idea where the best place in the UK to purchase this filter?
|ITG tend to be either the best or pretty close to the mark, however the restrictions of the airbox will mean you'll not see a massive improvement from just upgrading the panel filter. Still, it will make the engine feel more willing at higher revs, where the standard filter begins to struggle.|
As Duncan says, the big improvement comes when you straighten the air path with a full induction kit.
