    Intake Filter Opinions

    I currently have a Volant CAI and the filter that comes with it is tiny IMO so I want to upgrade it a touch.

    Here is what I have now: http://volant.com/edetail.asp?ID=56&ptype=f




    Here is what I'm considering:

    Volant: http://www.volant.com/edetail.asp?ID=68&ptype=f

    OR

    K&N: http://www.knfilters.com/search/prod...x?Prod=RU-3050

    OR

    Spectre: http://www.spectreperformance.com/in...tall-blue.html

    Spectre also has a 7": http://www.spectreperformance.com/in...tall-blue.html


    All are about the same price (I could sell my current unused one for same as these cost so it will be about a direct swap). Question is any opinions on the better brand or just filter is a filter is a filter...?

    I would look at Amsoil EA filters.

    If you have a Lingenfelter airbox, try an AMSOIL EaAU 6080 or 6081 (1" flange or 0.625" flange). It's FAR better than your typical cellulose filter, based on oil particulate analysis bought and paid for by a fellow CTS-V owner. The 6081 will definitely fit, based on conversations with people that have them--I don't know about the 6080.

    http://www.amsoil.com/shop/by-produc...a-air-filters/

    Brad (C66Racing) is an authorized retailer and will give you a couple of bucks off. While you're at it, ask him about the Preferred Customer Program, which costs about $20/year and is totally worthwhile if you buy more than 3 gallons of oil per year. You might as well pick up 12 quarts of AMSOIL Dominator 10W-30 while you're at it.

    The Spectre 9604 is a great addition. Also recommend buying an AMSOIL EaPF15 pre-filter to knock out some of that large diameter debris before it screws up the delicate layers in the EaAU 6081.

    (BTW--if Brad's inbox is full, I've got his email address.)

    You can always just sign up for the preferred customer program on the Amsoil website yourself (or even become a dealer for about the same price).
    etcts-v and etcts-v like this.
