If you go over to BITOG (Bob is the oil guy) they are big nay-sayers of oiled filters because of the silicone from the oil that goes on oil filters. You'd have to over oil pretty badly to put your silicone levels to a dangerous point for your motor though. But even oiled filters have lowered filtration because they "flow" better. Personally I would go with a well designed paper filter. I'm not sure exactly how much the possible lowered filtration and raised silicone levels in engine oil would affect engine longevity, but I'd take the safe route from since you're only likely to gain .5hp at most from the best flowing filter from the worst. The only nice thing about oiled is that they are reusable and save a little money
Synoil = our oiled filter
DFlow = our dry filter
Technically the Oiled filter will trap more dirt/particles than the dry filter, it will also allow slightly more air flow. The downsides are maintenance, you have to clean it more often and be careful NOT to over oil the filter. Being oiled it is a bit messier.
The dry flow there's no oil to worry about getting dried out. Cleaning is a bit easier since there's no oil to worry about. With both you can buy our prefilter, which basically is a nylon sock that fits over your filter, it's water resistant and also blocks a lot of the larger particles that might get lodged in your filter.
Not one to complain about vendors, especially one that makes good products but I have been waiting for the Delta Core Dissipate FMIC for over 3 months from from CPe. They rarely give dates and when they do they do not meet them. They provide no communication to their distributors and leave them...
Hello! I currently have an aftermarket BOV (turbosmart), and I was wondering if the CPE kit is worth the upgrade. I am using the stock vacuum pump line, not using intake manifold pressure, and I've heard that this blows off very quickly for safety reasons. This is my daily driver, so I wanted...
So the issue is that the 90 degree coupler supplied with the CP-E hotside fits the OEM k03 fine, but is too short to connect to a GTX series turbo.
Supposedly CP-E makes a longer coupling for their big turbo kits, is there a chance this coupler can be purchased separately?
I'd hate to have to...
