The air filter element is meant to filter the dirty air, aftermarket ones are more free flowing. So more air = more fuel can burn = more power lo.

But the CAI is just for cold air, cold air has more oxygen particles than hot air, so quite dumb lah if u put a CAI on a standard air filter.


Imagine ur hidung sumbat but I put a straw there then make u run, you still cant run fast. Go get the K&N filter AND then the CAI after that, you'll feel the difference :rolleyes:

If ur car have no other modification, better stick with ori. airbox + drop-in (mayb K&N); if you mod intake then most likely you will burn 'rich' unless you do A/F adjustment via RSM, VAFC or piggy.

When you mod your intake, make sure you also mod your exhaust system to maximize the effect

my fren told me not to change the air filter coz the ori air fliter is able to filter more efficiently than mushroom type even though it less power.

He say mushroom type, air intake is faz but then many sand will suck into ur engine made the engine 'kong' faster.

so can any1 advise on tis matter...

Haha dude, here's my opinion no offence yeah...

If really you want 100% reliability, you wont even do modding kan? :hmmmm:

Plus all those cars running the HKS filter, have you ever heard his engine rosak becasue of air filter? It definately wont be as clean, but the power is there.

Why not go for K&N or another filter if youre worried bro? Haha :proud:

Bro no need to be pissed, everyone has his own opinion haha.

Well if you can jaga it for 20 years, how long you wanna keep? 50 ar? :rofl:

Well its not the best, it filters better. There was a chart that compared HKS, K&N, Apexi and blitz but I cant find where, the worst filtering 1 was HKS. Anyways these kinda things is all which 1 you suka you beli lah.

Like saying, Adidas or Nike better? Or Coca-cola vs Pepsi etc. etc.

Sure dude welcome :). I personally like K&N though... up to you your budget + look you preffer haha!

1. Google image Individual Throttle Bodies. The shiny stuff is the trumpets, basically 1 throttlebody per cylinder.
2. Colors of the 20 valve 4age. The blacktop is more poweful :idea:
3. Bolt on turbo ar? Never heard of kit. Hahaha :biggrin:
4. VAFC = Apexi's ever popular VAFC. Can use google to help you. A piggy = piggyback ECU e.g E-manage blue..
5. Any airfilter externally that doesnt use the original airbox :burnout:
6. A/F = Air Fuel, so Air Fuel adjustment... Adjusting the amount of air + fuel entering the engine.
7. Cold Air Intake. Its that funnel thingy for the airfilter to channel cold air to it.
