    I'm looking to get a new air filter, hi-flow for stage one cv upgrade. Wanted to know if anyone has used this type of air filter and what you think of them. Any suggestions on other types of air filters appreciated.

    Thanks, SmoothAir

    I don't think he is talking about the breather... its similiar one but with the pointy end.

    Melbourne's right, it's got the pointed end. Wondering myself about how it would do in the rain, talked to some individuals, and didn't seem to be a problem, especially with the k&n filter.

    Hey Smooth, I think this is what you are looking for.

    Hobbit is right on with this. Rain will not hurt an engine. Socks that SE uses are called rain socks but I know of people that use them just to restrict the air that goes into the cleaner because they work so well. too much air sometimes. :D

    And a bit of water will bust up some unwanted carbon Too, hence returning a lower compression ratio and less chance of ping and detonation with this junk gas we have :s
