    Does anyone know where I can obtain a STI panel filter for my MY05 STI from?. Ive trawled around the internet and so far have only found Scooby Mania, who stock them for £47 + VAT + P&P.

    <font color="blue">Got mine from Scoobymania, I think you can also get them through either Jap innovations or Prosport. They would probably have to order one.</font id="blue">

    Wouldnt it cheaper in the long run to fit a performance filter thats washable like what K&N do or will that do your warranty no good

    just a thought [8)]

    <font color="blue">John,

    The STi filter is well known for its performance improvement and is possibly the best available. There are numerous after market dry, oiled, washable, guaranteed for a million miles etc but you get what you pay for.[;)]</font id="blue">

    lol @ Elv1s!!![:D]

    <font color="blue">I wasn there, but I suspect it may have been the other way round [?]

    Decent filter should give you a very small improvement in bhp and a little more responsiveness. It <i>is</i> possible that torque may fall a little when you start playing with induction, decats etc until its mapped [?]

    All imho, of course.</font id="blue">
     
  11. No - hes correct.
    Tests on the same RR and same cars have shown roughly what happens.

    We swapped the OEM panel filter on Jeffs old car and got a 3 BHP drop for a 10 lb/ft gain.

    I swapped my Green filter for a STI for a 3 BHP drop and 5 LB/ft gain.

    IIRC Tony Burns also got similar results on a OEM - STI swap.

    <font color="blue">Thought tonys went up.</font id="blue">
     
  13. TBH I Can remember [:D]
    He may have got a marginal BHP increase but I do recall a deffinate increase in Torque.

    The two "tests" above were both on Rolling Road 2 (IIRC there printed on the results page) , I think Tonys result was on Rolling Road 1.

    ordered mine on Monday - due today but looks like tommorrow ! Bl--dy post man. He could do with an STI filter on his post van.
    John at prosport said at least 10bhp increase [:D][:D][:D]
    And that kind Mister Towers said he will fit in his lunch break ! [8D]
     
  18. Itll cost you a bacon butty on Friday morning though [;)][:D]
     
  19. Delivered at 10BHP faster that is [;)]

    Will one of these panel filters do my Sport any good?

    Seem to recall that as mine is a phase 2 engine (classic Y plate) that these may not be suitable.

    Or is that b******s[?]
