    Default Stainless mesh filters

    Morning all.

    Been pondering one of these:

    http://www.cbsonline.co.uk/product/R...Filter_CARBFIL

    Apparantly they flow pretty well but how well does a mesh filter actually filter? Don't want to knacker my injectors with dust.

    It's the size of a fist and a stainless plate so you won't have missed it, its on the top facing up

    Theres mixed reviews on these tho, know Dan who had my CDTI loved his and said he'd have another, I took it off as prefer standard boxes and performance panel filters, not fussed on induction noise, I passed it on to Andy off he and he hated it, said car felt sluggish when warm...

    BMC CDA is cotton filter though - this is stainless and from what I can tell stainless flows well but the filtration is really bad.

    I've just been pondering intake cos I've got a K&N panel in now and apart from the danger of oil on the MAF or idle valves if you compare a k&n with a standard paper the paper filter has a much bigger surface area - the pleats are twice as long, so does the k&n really flow better? I only do 8 or 9k a year and I change filters every year so they never get that dirty. So I wonder if I'm actually better off with just the genuine VX paper filter?
