eek Air Cleaner probs for the BA

After doin a bit of circle work in my ute I had the obvious task of cleaning it up again (refer to Black paint discussion in ute forum), done all the engine bay, routine air filter dust out,What the hell!?

I have a Green plastic Air filter with LPG Only written on it. Oh Sh*t i thought.
I rang the dealer (as i had only had it serviced a month ago) and they told me that the BA's were having a "dust problem" so they fit the LPG ones, Has anyone else heard of this?

Also what is the brand of filters that Herrods use BMC???( I can't remember) as i want to get a better filter.

BA XR6 n/a Ute. Black, 5 Speed, Alarm system, Prestige Sound, Hard Tonneau. MODS: Tint, Lukey Cat-Back system

Re: Air Cleaner probs for the BA

Never noticed it, then again I only take her on highways and freeways mostly. Never out on a dirt road or anything. Phantom is too much of a pain to maintain...lol. Have a Splitfire cone filter fitted inside the airbox. Does the job quite well believe it or not. Increased overall performance on the dyno by 2-3 horses.

2003 BA Phantom XR6 N/A with Pacemaker headers - 2.5" exhaust - Splitfire Air Filter - Computer - Max. 232.6HP@RW (173.5KW@RW) - Definatley has potential - Go the BA XR6!!!

Re: Air Cleaner probs for the BA

It took me 15 min to change the filter over for a K&N one, then went out the next day and put in the ss cold air intake system, that took 3 hours. Bastard of a job but works very well you just have to seal the thing, other wise it sucks the hot air in from the motor, then went and had a full herrod stainles system put on. Breathes and farts a lot better then b4.
