I believe high flow panel filters are just a mod to support future mods. Like a bigger snorkel, different cam(s), exhaust etc etc

I wouldnt know the exact wording, but upgrading the air filter isnt really regarded as an add power type mod, like cams or exhausts (to an extent) its more a making sure there IS'NT a restriction, like what 89.SVO said..

Haha,

When I used to drive ricers I had a pod filter and it used to make a whistle on acceleration. Other than that not much!

I'm startin to think and feel that pods are really only a power mod for rice cars.. Along with the sticker and neons...

And for the induction noise on other applications...
