BMWCC Trillium Chapter Monthly Meeting - August 9th, 2005 (Everyone welcome!)

A well-known nationally branded air filter advertises that you can expect more horsepower and torque from its air filter. What do you think? On Tuesday, August 9th at 7:00pm, the Trillium Chapter is going to dyno 2 or 3 cars, as time permits, to test if air filters make any difference in horsepower and/or torque. Four filters are to be tested and compared to each other: K&N (cotton gauze with oil), BMC (cotton gauze with oil), ITG (foam with oil), and the stock BMW (paper).

The test will be conducted at Graf Auto Centre with a German Maha dyno. Graf is located at 151 Bentworth Avenue in North York, just north and east of Lawrence Avenue West and Caledonia Road, respectively (near Yorkdale Mall). Phone number is (416) 789-3423, Rudy.

If you like to be part of the test and own a E36 320i to M3, E46 320i to M3 (incl. Xi), E39 525i to 530i, or a Z3 2.0 to 3.2L. At the end of the evening, all filters will be sold at cost.
