Because I spend most of my driving time in traffic And don't get on the highway all that much I've been thinking about a performance air filter instead of all new intake. So am I crazy...
They ARE oiled. The K&N uses a cotton or cotton-like cloth with their red/pink oil on it. The Competizione one offered by 500Madness and others is a foam type filter but is also oiled.Are the drop-in filters available for this car the kind that you have to oil? I've been thinking about getting one but would hate to have the messy oily filter on my commuter car. I tried that on a motorcycle and decided it wasn't worth the maintenance hassle. So are the drop-ins dry filters or oiled filters?
Plenums can help too so what may look like a tortured mess actually may be helpful.if you look at the tortured air path our stock system has you would go with an aftermarket intake. You dont need air flow analisys to see the difference from the aftermarket to our stock one. One is a maze and the other one is a straight tube.
