again, Uni-filter.......$65.00 to 75.00 dollars. flows 1% less then K&N but by far un-match filtration. you have the option of removing one of the forms if you wish, for better flow.

I went for a Greenfilter, used in many rally and hi-performance euro cars (AMG's, M3/5's, 911's, etc). As mentioned above, excellent filtration (5 micron - don't want to kill yr engine for the extra 1 rwkw) and better flow than most other filters. Check out some of the euro forums for their opinions. Usually goes for around the same price as the K&N (approx $130)

Was just talking to a mate who works for a V8 Supercar team.

With BMC filters in the airbox, the pistons and bore look they've been hit with 60-grit wet & dry.

They used to run K&N but the corporate dollars overruled common sense and he was told to switch to BMC. :shock:

Regardless of the stickers on the bodyshell, you'll find more K&N Filters in Supercar airboxes than anything else. :wink:

Personally, I get a buzz out of torturing anything that comes with a million km warranty. :twisted:
