Hey, guys. Since I'm now more learned regarding air filtration/flow not being an issue in non-modded vehicles(restriction not being present with a stock air filter), I was considering doing something other than replacing my K&N drop-in filter(which has had slightly elevated Si ppm in my UOA to date, app in the sig). My idea is to buy a Pro Guard 7, an aFe, which is an oiled filter(ironically) and install it on a pipe of proper diameter(the filters inlet diameter matching some aftermarket tube to the VX's TB/IM). I find most of those filters are from $50-$75 or so, depending. One isn't available for my app, but I need to remove the stock intake system(resonator deletion). I have some small micro-cracking in the rubber hose(see pic below) at the 'flex' section from the air filter box. So, I would remove everything upstream and replace that pipe with one of similar length + a Pro Guard 7 as mentioned. ^Stole from another civic forum site. Similar app/layout to my car. OR would an AEM filter which comes with a lot of these kits(not interested in CAI necessarily) filter better than a cone K&N which seems to come on other kits? Thanks guys.
