Switch over K&N to Green
I own a petrol Swift 2007 in which i have change the filter to K&N
Now i have realized that the filter is not performing up to the standards as the filter is placed rite behind the radiator fan and it sucks hot air
So I am thinking to replace it with Green Cotton Wind, please let me know is it rite what i m dong or i have any other option ?

Could you please post a pic of your current istall? Is it a replacement filter or cold air intake (CAI) or RAM air intake? Which is the model of K&N?
Never expect a drastic change with just a filter. I drive a 2007 Swift VXi with Green Cotton Wind CAI and happy with the performance that can be obtained from it. The intake hose is directed in a way that it is away from hot air as much possible.

KNN or HKS is a better option then the green filter (becasue i guess they come in small sizes)
a friend of mine had issues with this green filter the engine was
not delivering optimum performance with it however when he changed to HkS the engine performed better

the k&n filter in yayaati's car is placed in the same position as the green filter in the pic posted by redfire but without the hose.So in effect,the filter is open and right on top of the cylinder head.Hence it draws in hot air from the radiator fan,heat from the exhaust manifold and the cylinder head.
@yayaati:switch back to the stock airbox and you will see a marked difference.No point spending more money on an intake which isn't giving you any performance gains as such.
Try the stock airbox for a week and then decide on whether you want a green filter or not?

Get something like redfire has or like what K&N Apollo has.
Apollo and Wind kit has the flexy tube which can be pointed towards were cold air hits most.

@hellspawn: i have already tried that there is very noticible diffrence with a stock and K&N
wonder the same difference would be in Green Cotton
@alias: green cotton has different filters for different cars
like mine is a swift so i will go for wind as it is for the cars up to 100BHP
@jkdas: I am talking about the same which redfire has the only question is that will it perform better or not
OR is is just psychological ????

Yayaati you can also try the K&N stock replacement filter!! I am sure that will give some gains because it goes in a stock box.
Why not come and drive my car which has the Green Wind Filter installed!!! You can get the feel of the filter and see for yourself whether it is better than the K&N or not!!!!
