Simply because the innovas intake system is about the same as the scorpios. When i had my storm in the stock intake place of the innova there was an irritatingly love sucking sound. My hunch is the same would happen in the scorpio.

Badboy: the stock location of the air intake in my GLx scorp of 2004 is next to the radiator, sucking cold air from the front grill area.

Hi Guys,

No on the Scorpio the sound is not that high as it was on the Innova with the hose to the side. Maybe the damping of the fender is better.The OE hole would be the best bet for the Scorpio.

Default FE - Before & After

Earlier I used to get around 11 to 11.6 Kmpl with the stock filter in local driving without AC. Now after the installation of the Green filter, the details are as under:

1st fill: 10.6 Kmpl (FE dipped)

2nd fill: 13.6 Kmpl (FE increased by 2 km)

I would be highly interested to know FE details of other fellow BHPians' drives, who have used this filter.

initial mileage on the swift DDiS- 18kmpl
after pete's box- 18.8kmpl
after green wind and pete's box- 19.4kmpl

all of these readings with AC on, and normal driving.

with pedal to the metal- FE can dip to 15.8 after all the mods.

is it a good idea to use a K&N filter or this Green Storm or whatever on my new Scorp Crde 2.6?
I am not keen on doing that Typhoon filter type for the Scorp. Just interested in changing the air filter to a better quality one, for the vehicles lifetime as K&N claims.
at the moment im quite content on the pickup and performance - dont want to soup it up un-necessarily.
But I want to know if changing this air filter will actually result in better mileage since engine aspiration is better

Hi All,

Just going to be joining the club in a couple of weeks time. I have booked a new scorpio lx with AURA alloys. I used to have a santro with k&n universal and had seen an appreciable FE once I got over the joy of flooring or downshifting as with a stock air filter. I would also like to know if there is a filter that just provides for better breathing of the engine, thereby increasing the FE by .8 to 1 KM. I would appreciate if you could point me to the thread the GD sahab has provided for Green Storm vs K&n comparison.
TIA

I've not used a K&N filter and hence can't comment on its performance. When I was looking for a CAI, K&N didn't have encased filters. It only had that conincal open filters, that produced a growl but also sucked hot air from within the engine bay.

Hence I went for GreenStorm since it came enclosed. I've not posted anywhere here a comparision between K&N & GreenStorm.
