Was researching air filters and found this interesting article. It doesn't appear to be biased. What do you guys think?
This ^Any filter that flows more air is not going to filter it as well. That's just basic filter design. This is, of course, assuming equal filter area.
Compared to a stock filter with a completely closed end, the green filter and other similar filters do add extra area since the end is a cone.This ^
If you increase flow with out increasing unit area of the filter, all you are doing is letting in more crap. If you really need more air, get a BIGGER filter, not one with less element.
so without a tune I have nothing to gain by allowing more airflow?if you aren't tuned then you don't need an air filter. will do nothing for you. an air filter alone will give you 0 increase regardless of the marketing lies
I am not a fan of any oil based filters, I do like the AEM filter by K&N because it is dry and so easy to keep clean. spray it off with the hose and your good.
True. And even with a tune there`s not much to be had but sound. Make sure to follow oil change intervals religiously or sooner with a high flow filter.so without a tune I have nothing to gain by allowing more airflow?
