Standard air box and pipe work is restrictive, however a Nice free flow filter will help it breath, just make sure the filter is not heavy soaked in oil like the k n type the destroy mass meter sensors.

Gadget, thanks ill take a look at your site for the filter. Having not fitted a panel filter, i presume its just snap in/off - no tools ? My Skoda's Revo filter was a round type filter that needed to use a torque wrench on a couple of hex type bolts.(as you can see I am no mechanic.....) Let me know
it' just a case of unclipping the top pipe and pulling apart gently remove it out the way then releasing two metal retaining clips then slowly pull apart the two halves apart the bottom of the air box has two lugs on the front half which locates on the back half. then you can pull the old filter out then put the new filter in and it will only fit one way so it is then just put it back in reverse.if you can send me a pm with your email address i can send you some photo's over.forgot to say the best part is you don't throw the complete filter away when the foam element is dirty, you can purchase a foam element separately then fit it in to it's frame.Gadget2014-02-11 17:23:01
