Pipercross Release New Vauxhall Astra J Panel Filter

Performance filtration specialists Pipercross have added yet another core tuner car to their 3,000-strong model portfolio; the new Vauxhall Astra J. The new mid-sized hatch from Vauxhall looks set to offer credible opposition to Ford’s Focus and will doubtless be a favourite of tuners everywhere, thanks to an excellent range of engines and well balanced chassis.

The car responds extremely well to breathing modifications, with a panel filter and exhaust upgrade often being the first improvements that owners make. The Pipercross filter is designed to be an exact replacement for the rather asthmatic factory paper filter and uses multiple foam layers to allow up to 30% more air flow through to the engine, improving power, torque and drivability over the stock set-up. Best of all, it’s made here in good old Blighty!

As well as increased flow rate, thanks to its unique (and patented) multi-laminated open cell polyurethane foam construction, the Pipercross upgrade can actually filter down to a much finer rate than the OEM part, preventing any foreign particles from entering the induction tract, meaning even greater protection for the Astra’s engine. This same construction means that the filter can also go longer between service intervals than even leading cotton-gauze filters, before needing to be cleaned.

Best of all, despite these impressive abilities, the Pipercross filter comes with a lifetime warranty and can be easily cleaned again and again for re-use, providing decades of faithful service and paying for themselves many times over.

The price is a very reasonable £34.85. Bearing in mind that it’s the only one you’ll ever need – what are you waiting for?
