The factory snorkel is the 2nd biggest restriction in the intake, with the airbox outlet the most restrictive like you mentioned

With the surpise being the standard paper filter contributing to f**k all restriction

tells me that changing the filter wont help much...

stock is legal anywhere, cheap to replace... better things to spend money on it appears...

(now to remove the pod filter off my nissan lol)

ahh well, I told just cars I have a filter and on my insurance statement, it says K&N air filter so its not my problem. I honestly dont see how the oil from the filter can foul sensors, such a minute amount will enter the combustion chamber every day that it would be negligible. I'm sure there are more impurities in the fuel itself that you put into your tank.
