Hey guys,just got myself an SS Induction for $280, im going ot be putting it in this week sumtimes and i was just wondering what air filter i should get myself, i have heard the Bigmouths that ss inductions make are quite good,heard they are around $125, but have also heard K&N's are good, just wondering if any of you guys have any comments on either and what i should use?
cheers!

ive got a K & N in mine its not bad - but they do let a bit more dirt thru unless you oil and clean it regulary.
In some flow tests that were on here a while ago i think the paper filter actually fared better

Guys ive used both K&n and redline but i went to the redline as too stronger making and does the same as the more expensive filter.

but im plesed with the result of either one just comes down to the end of the day how much you wint to spent on improving the airflow.

go K&N filters mate, best 100 bucks i spent on performance increase, although pacies 4499's made a huge difference, and i mean huge, oppened up the engine beyond what i could believe. the el is a rocket now with the full intake and exhaust mods, does 7.5sec 0-100 everyday, anyday.. easy peesey.......
