Filters

Some light information you should know when it comes to best filters available at the moment. This is in order of best to fair, its dyno proven with their reference taken from dyno run without a filter 155kw.
1. HKS racing pod style filter (compact) 153.9kw
2. K&N rampod with slong snout. 153.7kw
3. Simota Rampod 153.3kw
4. Finer Filter ......~151
Couldnt remember the other filters.
Oh yes the ever popular Rush filters ummmm found to be one of the restrictive at 149kw when dynoed.
Oh Source of this information - Hot4s, yes I know shame on me, but mate from work had copy sitting on the table.
Hope this information will help you all gain that extra couple of kw's.

Arnt Pod type Filters not allowed due to emission laws? Apparently you have to retain the stock airbox or you can get defected?

And the only way to bypass this is to register it as an 'Modified' vehicle or something?

I have a K&N pod filter on my car (ED XR8)- I took the airbox off, and I havent had any problems with defects or anything (I have only had 1 cop go over my car since I got it though.)

Cant see why there will be any change to the emissions. ?!?

Oooops Sorry for you all to give you a bum steer. Had to rely on memory last night.
Here is the right order.
1. HKS 153.9kw
2. K&N 153.3kw
3. Finer Filter O2 Rush 153.3kw (so I think you're safe there Black S)
4. Simota 153kw
5. Unifilter at ~151
6. Lynx prototype
7. Obyx
8. Trust - 149kw

Sorry for the misinformation last night... got Rush and Trust mixed up.
Also I cant see why there would be a change in emission, all its doing is flowing more air into the engine. Also no one would know that you have pod type filter unless you let them see it.
Black S I did a 1km run without a filter and engine revs so happily, so smooth. I wouldnt recommend it to you all but I took the risk just to see what its like without the filter.
Warning: Running without filter can premature engine life.

I HAD A FINER FILTER POD ON MY XG XR6 WHEN I TOCK IT OFF TO SELL IT & UPGRADE TO A RUSH(WHICH I HAVE HAD ON THE XG & MY CURRENT ED XR6 SINCE THEY CAME OUT) I ACTUALLY LOST 50Ks PER FUEL TANK. I THEN PUT IT ON THE ED AND GOT AN EXTRA 70Ks PER TANK(WITH A TRIP COMPUTER FROM A FAIRMONT). THEY ARE THE DOGS DANGELYS.
