    But what about filtration ability (for which foam is generally not at good)?

    There was a test done some time ago where filter flow was measured as well as it's ability to "filter". Results were not surprising, when taking both the the ability to flow and the ability to filter the K&N still came out top. As I remember it, the foam filters didn't fair to well. Either way you won't ever find one on my car. If I have time I'll see if I can find it again.

    Dry pod on the VS.
    Wet pod on the VE.
    Both work.
    That is all.

    I know blokes on the race circuit that run open carby's and just a stone defector.... They do that so it has the least possible restriction.

    Look up Blasphemi on YouTube. They recently retuned it and found another 40 hp when they fitted a filter on top.....

    My mates drag bike has side facing velocity stack.
    All good for racing, but if he tried it on the highway it would literally suck air from the carb OUT into the passing airflow at 100kph cruise rpm
