You mean lean out actually. Choke would be stock filter and a large overjet.

R-Active pricing seems inexpensive (even after the increase).

The SF100 costs less than 1/2 of the price of the EV500.

The price you mention is for the EV500.

Just installed simota in my Getz, the pickup & sound is amazing... Was initially going for a pipercross, but simota is huge similar to k&n & also the performance is better than pipercross.

Alrighty...

My stock Honda air filter finally gave out about a week back, so it was time for change.

The nice people at Honda tried to convince me out of roughly Rs 4000 for a new stock air filter, and my father was all for it. However I finally have the right to make my own decisions regarding my car (It's finally my money going towards my car).

I decided to go with a Pipercross conical air filter and later custom make an induction kit, or go in for the Pipercross viper intake.

Sadly the person whom I contacted did not have the Pipercross air filters in stock. On his suggestion and at no cost I am running a Simota conical filter for the last 3 days.

I have known of the brand for a while, and have seen many of their products in Singapore. The quality is definitely up there with the likes of K&N and Green.

The induction noise is brilliant when matted to the 2.4L in my car. Drivability has definitely improved, and I'm quite happy. However the one thing I noticed is that the power band has shifted up a bit. Earlier my car pulled like a beast from 2.5K RPM, now she needs to be kajoled above 3K to really pull, but boy does she pull. The difference in HP is probably around 2-3 by the butt dyno, but she has become more responsive at the higher rev bands, she's more fun to drive for sure.

Best of all the simota experience has come free of cost.

DocG

PS: I will be shifting to a pipercross filter in a few days. It's not that I dislike the Simota, which is a fine upgrade, but I want the added filtering benefits of a foam filter, even though it costs more...

Do you want it for show or for go?

Don't fall for the bling!

They might look good, but the air storm and the dragon will lose you performance.

The carbon charger intake system lose you bottom end torque.

For normally aspirated fast road applications these are the wrong applications plus some of them are not of any benefit in any performance oriented application.
