The company that spends most of advertisements and sells the most product is obviously the best.

Orange looks cooler than black or white or mustard yellow. They should use Baldwin's racy red filters!

I have a friend with a GN who's a ricer at heart. When he had orange silicone intercooler coupling hoses he used a Fram. When he ran the blue hoses, he used AC Delco. Didn't care one bit about performance, he wanted the filter to match at all costs.

You did confiscate that GN right?

Hey, I just had a thought. Why not paint it to match the car?
Sweet!
