    I cannot comment on the ducato itself as I have not seen the positioning of the air filter however what I can say is you will notice a slight difference in performance & a more noticeable whistle from the turbo.
    It will be better accompanied with a EGR bypass giving a bit more mid range grunt.

    What you want to achieve is a direct flow of cold air into the intake to get the best performance so placing & ducting is vital.

    Hope this helps..............

    And as a seller of K & N's may I just remind folk that they do need REGULAR cleaning and re-oiling.
    Contrary to what you may read elsewhere I know from long experience they do not work that well if you do more than about 5000 miles without doing the biz.

    The cleaning kits are pretty expensive but if you just buy the oil you can wash them out in petrol ( do make sure they are nice and dry before re-applying the oil to the filter or indeed fitting them back in ! )

    Folk generally believe they are cheaper in the long run, but remember they are actually a performance item. As such and like all performance kit, they are pretty high maintenance compared to a throw away paper element type
