Mashrock:
Why are the "hks filters of death" thats what im running
They're foam - the filtration on them isn't very good, and when the foam gets old it disintegrates, and gets sucked into the turbos
They also look like cheapo Halfords jobbies too :chuckle:

Apexi are the only filters to use if you're ditching the airbox

Haha, no mate Halfords is a chain of stores we have in the UK that sell various motor bits (albeit over priced) but there's one pretty much everywhere.

I had Blitz on mine and now have ARC box with new filters. I've yet to drive it with it fitted but i'll let you know how it sounds.:chuckle:

Well driven it now with the ARC fully fitted and working well and i must say it is much less noisy than the blitz ones i had, you hear more exhaust and less air intake noise. Also you don't hear much of the recirculating BOV's either, much more sedate on long motorway journeys. The quality is very good and i am very pleased with it.

Glad your pleased with the units, i do like the sound of the bov's alot. In my case they don't recirculate so the ARC unit mite be interesting. Best of both for me i guess.

I use the purple filters from HKS in their Racing Induction Kit. Great kit and doesnt take up all the limited space, making for power gains and a tidy instal. I am however thinking of moving to the larger oversized apexi cones and Z32 air flow meters.

Just replaced my AFMs today and noticed that my K&Ns are absolutely rubbish... :(
They probably killed the AFMs on their way to turbos when disintegrating :chuckle:

I'm going for Apex'i now, they did great previously in GTST

Will they fit K&N's elbows or will I have to get the whole kit?

The issue I had when I had my arc air box a while ago was it just takes up so much space and getting to the front pass side headlamp was a real arse. Nice bit of kit though.

Twin HKS filters but I worry they dont get enough air as one sits against the washer bottle. I want a headlight duct but it isnt street legal surely?
