Voted for K&N, since I do not have any experience with others. I know its not the right way to do, But I am happy with K&N in my present Aveo, after changing it gave me much difference in ride. Overall I am happy about it.
I have also explained this to the one to whom I am selling it now.

But for Scorpio mHawk, Will green cotton be better? Any ideas /experiences - please through it here, Thanks.

BTW - Anyone knows how frequently we should wash the Filters? How to find out the right time for cleaning the filter?

Thanks,

BHPians,

Any advice on which filter to be used on a OHC 1.5 exi.

Questions to all

1. Do i opt for a K&N stock replacement filter / Conical filters or Green cotton stock /
conical filter
2. Can i have prices and part numbers for both models, if handy

Also OHC owners, pls share your experiences with any of the above filters, as i see there are very less reviews of filters fitted on a OHC

I have the K&N Conical. Its good, i like the sound and the fact that it smoothens the revs. dont think it makes any significant difference in the performance and FE(in city). FE on the highway improves a bit.

Thanks for your suggestion KSM-Vtec, but i'm not looking at a conical filter at this point of time, wanna do the mods step by step. As of now stock filter fits in to my budget.

BTW what is the mileage(City and Highway) you are getting with the conical filter on your OHC

hey , i have a 2006 Getz....i have just installed a Simota conical filter.....but am worried about the filter sucking in hot air from the engine bay...also the danger of water splashing onto the filter.....i was thinking of fabricating a heat shield or an induction box.....plzz advice me if it is a good idea and if yes how to go about??...also which material?
below r the pics....as u can see i have fastened the filter with an elctrical wire also plz comment on the placement of the filter.

@fastraj - Dont worry about weater splashing on these filters, these are designed to take that burden. The way akshay has fitted this filter is neat. A custom clamp will do the trick, you can weld the other end of the clamp to the base (create a custom metal base) of the filter. I would advise you to take a color printout of Akshays filter fitment to your mechanic. its tough to explain the setting to them. Hope this helps.

You do know what happens to engine due water going into it. all are air filters not water filters. During car wash do cover it up with a plastic bag and do remember to remove it before starting.
Do secure the filter properly and also see if its possible to place it any other way such that battery fumes dont keep entering it all time. kits for filters take care of these.

The rubber from the Air intake hose to the air filter rubber is not a good hold. Add a short SS pipe in between. Also replace the wire with a Clamp.

After reading the Spicer Report and given our dusty conditions K & N is a definite no-no.
