well,i heard that HKS filters, if not maintained properly, the sponge could be brittle and the dust could enter your engine. and also i read it somewhere whent hey tested various sports and aftermarket filters, HKS has one of the lowest filteration rate. the one with best filteration and also a good air-flow is the twin funnel filter from apexi i think?? is it? lolz, cannot remember, butthen thats the one with the best filteration without sacrificing air-flow ;) hope this helps

yeap... if u really wanna go for branded aftermarket air filters, i recommend Apexi or K&N... both also lifetime usage while HKS need to change the sponge when it is dirty... Apexi is lifetime usage with no maintainence... K&N also lifetime usage but need to wash and reoil after 50k km... sounds like a good bargain compare to HKS...

HKS air filter is good in term of performance..but for long term...it is not worth for ur maintenance...u hv to change the sponge every 10000km which cost u bout rm85 for original hks sponge

get Sard,Apexi,Knn,Blitz which u can wash....save alot...

carb= old type engine..running without ECU
EFI = fuel injection engine..newer model...control by ECU

Apexi dual funnel should be around rm230 for new.....if used is below rm200

find G221 if u r interested wit 'SARD' used air filter...cheap but abit dirty...gotta wash it urself

erm, for 1.3 carb, i guess you can go brother and buy the RAM, then you need to get the adaptor to fit into the ram, cause im using it on my car now also, with some unbranded open pod filter. so far so good, no problem ;) can also buy the adaptor to fit in the custom stainless steel pipe too. so means you got the air-ram for your carby, then get the adaptor to get the stainless steel air-ram and also the ram itself, then add on the filter at the end of it, in the end, you manage to bring the filter further away from the engine giving it good position for CAI purpose and also nice look stainless steel ram attached to your filter and also in your engine bay ;)
