Just got this...
Nicely presented package.
I don't expect any difference...but interesting filter.

It is oiled as well.
The oil is much thicker than K&N oil and it feels quite sticky, so no way it can contaminate MAF.

The edge is rubber and the mesh is plastic.

The rubber is thick and sturdy but it takes some fussing to get the airbox clips closed. All works well once lined up. This would mean the seal around the filter is quite good as well as it seals tight around the edge.

Apparently should be cleaned every 12 months or 15 000km.

Ryco sells cleaning kit as well.

Will see how I go with it...

Mark Boxer did a video on these filters. Results are pretty much what you'd expect -

Didn’t wanna go for an otr mate?
Wanna keep the stock look.
On another note, the filter is quite thick so it kind sits in front of the inlet duct covering about half of it....
Given that it's the filter media I guess this does not really matter...
I am getting HSV lower airbox half as the duct is a bit bigger with an extra opening...
Hmmmm

the whole point of a aftermarket filter is to take use of the better CFM with a tune.
