Just reviving an old thread. Initially I wanted a K&N. Reading the posts I heard about the Green Cotton and later the Ractive. The Ractive is real VFM. My vote goes for the Ractive just because of price. Can't comment on performance as I have not used either.
@Rohan
I spoke to PJ Speedshop today and he said that some models are in stock. The rest will be available in 2 weeks.

ractive is not good for turbo applications. it will be sucked up and torn apart for high flow application. i had to replace ractive with k&n extreme and it does work well.

Hi guys , can anyone suggest an air filter that can work with both my corolla 1.8 and CRV 2.4 ? (dont ask why)

I want better Engine sound.

is SF400 a good Idea
or EV500 ?

Want it to be around 2-3k range if possible.

Where can I get piping done for it in Noida/NCR because PJspeed shop doesnot supply any ?

Smile Ractive dealers in NCR ?

Hi , I need a Ractive Air filter for my corolla , anyone has information of any Dealer who stocks them in Noida-NCR region ?

Otherwise could you suggest any cheaper alternative than K&N, as the filter alone is costing me 4.5k , that would be available in NCR ?

Any help regarding this matter would be appreciated.

Note : Pjspeed shop has no filters in stock (EV 500 apart).

Am convinced with the K&N filter in my bike. I had a drastic change in the performance front. Seeing this thread i'm planning to put a K&N filter in My Beat. Any idea whether it is available for Beat?

Hi Folks,

Has anyone fitted K&N air filter for Ertiga Zdi. I am planning to add K&N filter. Do you know the air filter model number that can be used for Ertiga. I would prefer conical filter compared to stock replacement.

Thanks,
Prakash.
