Re: Air filter

BMC panel filter or the K&N Filter if you are after a "performance" filter...

Re: Air filter

Waste of money.
Everything less than 10 hp is not noticeable, only in your wallet..!!
Stick to original, or quality aftermarket paper filter, change when necessary, and forget all the "sporty" airfilter gimmicks.

Re: Air filter

Nothing can compare airflow of a new, clean paper filter, not even K&N, they admitted this fact themselves..!!
So if it's REAL performance you're after, stick to the factory filter, and maybe change it a bit more often.
(On the other hand, if you're driving a big, carburetor equipped V-8 in dusty desserts, you may need K&N...cause that's what K&N is designed for in the first place, in our cars, it brings nothing but noise, complete waste of money)
