Funnily enough I have been

Funnily enough I have been googling on the sirion rally 2 & 4 and from that discovered that a British company were responsible for designing and tuning the cars for the U.K market. One of these to bring the power output up is the air intake system you describe. So to change the air intake may increase power further or it may mean that the engine may not breath the same and bring this down:

Rally 2 tuning

Daihatsu UK teamed up with Auto Immage Ltd Bedfordshire to tune the little sirion to maximise its performance levels. They were unable to achieve any improvement from conventional tuning i.e. ignition timing, fuelling as the ECU just compensated. So they set out on another path using a reprofiled exhaust camshaft, Free Flow air filter and a different ECU and (coupled with larger 15" wheels and uprated brake pads) They referred to this as 'hard won' improvements and I'm sure if it was a simple as fitting a different Airflow they would certainly have done this and improved it further. There is a good article. Do a Google, type in Daihatsu Sirion Rally 2 and take a look at Evo Car reviews.

Lets not forget that for a little 1.3 non Turbo engine the Rally 2 is already pretty special.

The ITG filter in the Rally

The ITG filter in the Rally makes a big difference too if in doubt stick in a a standard paper element from the 1.3 and you'll be staggered how different the car feels. So not sure how much an induction kit would add as on many cars those don't give you any real benefit if the induction tracts is efficient to start.

AllanB re ITG filter

Was the ITG Air filter fitted as original equipment on Rally 2? Could you say where is the best place to buy i.e. would I have to go to ITG direct or do Daihatsu sell these?

The filter can be bought

The filter can be bought from Daihatsu UK and is grey in colour for about £30, if its not grey and about this price its not the right one.
