Not if it is designed with a proper cold air intake. Most sport compact or truck CAIs use either a cone filter designed with a box taking in cold air from outside the engine compartment or by using a very large air box down by the lower airdam. I don't think it will matter with the Rover engine.Muddy Oval said:I'd never run a cone filter in the engine compartment because it sucks hot air- even the stock setup is better, although without the cool noise.
Before you go any further, think about you want it for the next 6 months, 12 months, down the road. Even though it is a '89, and I know little or nothing about Rover motors, maybe you should resolve those exhuast issues.Paul Grant said:I just picked up an '89 with an ITG air filter assembly (JC60 Maxogen to be exact) on it. The truck has some exhaust issues so I haven't really had the opportunity to see what impact it has on performance but it looks serious. ]
