I have no idea where I read it online, it was nearly 2 years ago.

It was a very well done independant study using quite a few filter options.

Particle filtering, CFM, and pressure drop were all taken into consideration.

OEM paper filters routinely placed at the top.

ALL of that aside.. as i said earlier the intake is NOT a restriction on any m20 unless its been highly modified. Even then I seriously doubt it.

hate to interupt, but can anyone get an OEM filter for less than $40?
Crappy Tire and Napa both want like $45. My car isnt worth the investment, but its near that time where it does have to be replaced

BMA has them for $7.52US.

Call Precision Tuning, the maX sponsor. He tends to have the best OEM part prices in the city.

Yeah. But look at what Trevor just posted, Zimmie can get them at Part Source for $10. I bet Precision's price is exactly the same, he's across the street from York U.
