Thumbs up

I was wondering what you guys thought of this filter element and of its components.



http://www.rx7trix.com/store/customer/prod...5&cat=90&page=1



Does anybody have this intake? Will it have everyhing I need for my Turbo II?



What would you recommend?

you mean apexi had an air filter test and apexi came out the best. it does seem to be a decent filter but the way they attach it is dumb

I'm pretty sure it wasn't done by apexi as the website I saw the test on look ed pretty home-brewed. Regardless its just an intake, you won't noticed anything between companies, espeically at low power levels.

its not the power, its the filtering, and who paid for the testing. look at the bottom of the link, apexi did the testing. they win, thier biggest competition is hks, which loses
