What's the cost of a JMM one?
I mean K&N are a huge brand and that, so if there cheaper than the JMM ones' I'd go with them as there's no question on there quality or anything.

try uni-filter, 1% below K&N in flow but far more superior in filtration. good thing about uni is you can remove one of the two foam{fine} & leave the a*** form for the drags. it'll probably flow better.

who makes the JMM one? there are only so many top notch filter out there.. from memory I paid about $110 for mine for an ef falcon.. I'm thinking maybe a BMC in JMM package?? but that for of money is HUGE for a filter. is it a panel filter or a pod filter?

does anyone have an enigma decoder, we need to decipher the message.

Sorry dude!
So you mean: when you had the K&N filter it dirtied the air flow meter. So you brought yourself a uni-filter and now it goes harder and uses 1/2 the fuel. is that correct, or is it the other way round.

are you sure its just the FILTER for $190? i thought when it says "hi flow intake mods" they are change the intake piping aswell, and puttin in the air filter.

I think i remember msging someone that had a DEV 3 kit but cant remeber if he said anything about the hi flow intake mod.

Check up on that to see if it is just the FILTER for $190 or anything extra

JMM's high flow intake piping is a lot more than $190.00!
I'd go the K&N, because a. it's a fair bit cheaper ($110ish retail - most autp stpres sell them - Autobarn, Repco, etc.), and b. because there all huge brands I don't think any are really significantly superior, and the notice between a K&N filter and stock is near nothing, so the notice between a K&N and another expensive high flow is probably near on nonexistant (on near stock cars).
