Default 207 1.6 hdi induction kit

Anyone know what happens to the hole in the side of the rocker cover that usually joins to the intake breather pipe does it get blocked off if so is it safe for the turbo to work without that bit of oil going down to it like it usually does through intake breather pipe ? Just wondering as theres no induction kit for 307 and looked at 207 hdi and engine is identicle and theres a kit for it so goin to put it on my 307 to get rid of that awful box behind engine

Not worth fitting to HDI you loose the cold air feed and with high heat levels under the bonnet from turbo etc you will most likely get less power and intake sound is not like petrol as intake just feeds turbo. Better bet is to fit K&N etc in existing airbox

The standard paper filter both flows and filters better than a K&N. If you really must then a Pipercross panel is the only one to give both better flow and better filtration.

However you won't go no quicker and the oil from these filters can foul the MAF and cause problems, so I'd put your wallet away.

Hi

Most interested in the k&n advice. When I got my car it had a k&n he had fitted to reduce the times going under the slam panel.

The loose air box damaged a plastic water pipe and marked top of egr valve.

I cleaned filter made bracket for air box if I get you right the filter is poor would it cause damage do you think, cost me twenty quid to clean it did I waste my money.

Cheers

The k&n is as good as the servicing of it is i reckon. It needs oiling regularily enough as the oil traps the dirt/dust etc.

Would an induction kit work as good as the original airbox if i put a cold feed to it or i could even make the air cone sit in the compartment above arch where the old cold air feed started ? Im not expecting no performance boost ect just want to remove air box behind engine ?

The airbox gets damaged by people swapping the filter without removing the entire unit from the car - they just undo the two screws and take off the top.

That works OK, but you can't reverse the process and put it back on without breaking off the lugs on the back.
