More dense air works best (All turbo rally cars are tested early in the morning when the air is best)

No backpressure needed for a turbo car, get the gases out shortest and quickest route possible.

N/A car: air goes in at atmospheric pressure not sucked in.
free flow filter will make the smallest amount of differance.

In order for it to make a differance that is noticable the whole system needs upgrading. larger throttle body , ported and polished head, high lift camshaft, 4 branch manifold and a decent exhaust system (remembering back pressure required on a n/a car)

I also would fit fuel pressure reg and remapped ecu to except the higher fuel pressure and more air flow.

There you go thats my imput simplified hope this helps a little.
Lag Derv drivers are more concerned about prolonging the life of their exploding turbos than getting extra powerrrr - you think the rest of the renault drivetrain could take it? - unlike you bansai jap tuners
