Default Proton Performance filters

Does any one have info on performance of Chennai based Proton power filters? I did visit the manufacturer and checked out his filters.

Proton said that he will give me a prototype for me to test on my HH Ambition. He claims that top racers use his filters for their race spec Esteems. Any one got any idea??

I will get the prototype tomorrow. Will post any feedback that I may have.

Have you used Proton filters before? Do you have any data to prove that it "Sucks"??

No offense meant here. Please refrain from making such statements without proper proof. Moderators please atke note. I will post my feedback after using a prototype which will be provided by the manufacturer shortly.

Guy's, Ajo has mentioned that proton is being used by racers for race spec esteem. If at all it is bad which racer will go for it?
We will give time to evaluate the prototype and post a review.

Ajo, Waiting for your review on the filter.
