Series 1 2.0Si, LE-Jetronic, non-turbo. The space it fits in at the
front of the drive is a little tight, but I cut a tall enough bit off
the filter and it *just* squeezes in. How well it actually works I
don't know.

Heh. I went in to get bits for my 1989 Citroen CX 22TRS, and the spotty
oik behind the parts counter had never ever *heard* of those. He *did*
know that some had "that funny air suspension that goes up and down" but
he wasn't allowed to work on those.
