Re: bmc air filter oh yeh!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Noticed the same when I took my K & N out to clean about 3 weeks ago, the paper filter just felt sluggish and had no top end!!!

Was it easy to clean? I seem to recall that you need to buy a kit for that....... I could be wrong and would be happy about that! Had mine in for about 10,000km, I think it might need it.

Re: bmc air filter oh yeh!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Drop in panel filter and full exhaust (standard cat is poo but cat back if you're not willing to spend the money) is the standard basic mods, plus the 2.0L Auto Air Deflector if its a manual.

From there you start looking at more money in a chip (expensive but good), larger throttle body (which only gives you like 2hp for your 500 bucks or so), and adjustable cam sprockets.

And brother, you do need a filter cleaning kit, has the required oil for re-oiling after a clean, the kit details how to clean it.

Re: bmc air filter oh yeh!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hey GT-P 738,

just in reply 2 ure question u can get the panel filter from any auto place like autobahn or supercheap, they usually round $80 thats wat autobahn quoted me. Umm 4 the air deflector goto any ford dealer spare parts shop n its part No. FO-2M51 16613 DB, just picked up mine today n was round $37. Finally the zorst, many ppl have their own opinions on them as some like custom made ones from exhaust specialists but theres also herrod motorsports that do focus ones n also remus sports exhausts. It all pretty much boils down to personal opinion and how much you are willing to spend. Thats my 2 cents 4 the day.

Cheers
