    Question How good are Pipercross Filters compared with K+N?

    Basically as above really. Has anyone any experience with Pipercross filters? Are they pretty much the same as K+N?

    Cheers

    avoid foam filters, much poorer filtration...K+N are one of the better brands,but a clean standard paper one will flow as much air as a K+N ...just not as long a service life..

    I would prefer the pipercross over the K&N, they are easier to clean etc.

    But as GSi3.2 said above, far poorer airflow than the K&N, and quite possibly not as good as a clean stock filter.

    After doing quite a lot of reading, there's so little measurable difference between a performance filter and a clean paper one, I'd probably advise sticking with standard and changing it every few months....a whopping £6 a time

    have always went with pipercross rather than K&N, as they have better filtration, easier to clean, etc and just generally better products...

    used to give off a nice rasp as well
