stock air box with nismo panel filter.
I think the stock air box is quite good as Mines and Nismo are basically using it.

If the Arc ones are foam then you can just clean them. My motorbike came with an oiled filter as standard and to service you'd wash it (in diesel) then re-oil it. If you are running MAFs then you might not want to oil it but there are alternatives you can use.

On the other hand if the K&N filter is cotton they (apparently) filter better. I'm sure K&N could help out if you dropped them a line.

yea, the original ARC filters are foam and you can wash them, but i dont have those in my box. I bought it with some crappy paper panels. So there gotta be a replacement filters but the smaller one (170x120mm) is hard to find. Or you could just buy a originals but i dont know where

I have HKS pods on mine but after reading up loads on the air temp circulating the pods vs the air temp in the ARC box, I bought an ARC box and will be fitting it soon.
I've also been told the way to make the box perfect, is to pipe a cool air feed to it, however you can

I went from the HKS pods, to the ARC induction box, and now Apex'i cones.

The HKS made plenty noise, but it didn't get good numbers for filtration and airflow in an article I read. Which doesn't surprise me as the foam is pretty thin.

The ARC box looks good, was quiet, but did a terrible job of filtering. As mentioned before, the filter would bow out and get sucked into the filter, and there was a hole in the bottom of mine for which I assume was a water drain, but also doubled as a non-filtered intake section. It mucked up my MAFs and when I took it all off there was sand and dirt in the intake pipes past the MAFs. My car stuttered violently and ran like garbage.

Switched to Apex'i filters and changed my MAFs and now the car purrs, the filter element on the Apex'i system is way better than those other replaceable foam systems. Same noise volume as the ARC box.

I presume you ment it got sucked into the box? That's probably because it's not fitted properly. You need to get the filter in position so it sits on the edge in the back of the box, otherwise it caves in.
I found it's a bitch getting fitted, I used a screwdriver on the rubber, pushing it in over the edge.

Yes I meant the box. The panel sat in the box properly, but as soon as the frame around it was screwed on, it would distort the seal between the filter and the box.

bummer. there must be some filters that are correct size for it, but its reeeally hard to find out. When i bought mine there were some filters used (no part numbers in them tho), i know that bigger one is available but that smaller one is tough to sort out

modding the box and filter frame is always a choice, but im sure there is some alternative one to use. so step out who knows

The hole in the bottom is not for water drain but is used to screw the box into a bracket that sits underneath it.

Never had a problem with my box.
Have both black filters and Red ones with the ARC-logo on them, none of them get sucked in.

Oh I see. I suppose I was just unlucky (nature of buying 2nd hand I suppose). I like the Apex'i filters much more though. There's more room to work with and easier to remove/install.

Mís induction kit on mine with Mís K&N filters. They were on the car when I bought it and they seem good to me although the filters could do with replacing
