Re: Factory vs. Aftermarket Filter
Umm, they tested both a new filter (factory one) and an ooold one which was caked with dirt.. The old one still flowed almost exactly the same amount of air..
If you want the best flow possible, go for those long ram-jet pipe things :) They look awesome sticking out the bonnet, and offer no restriction (actually, a small amount of "boost" as air is forced into them as it moves past the car at high speed)
TQE, SWB, ATPS, Worst of the E-series.. and I wouldn't have it any other way
