Default Favorite High-flow Air Filter

I'm looking at getting a new cone filter and was wondering what brand air filter everyone else is using for their intakes? Pro/Cons? Good experiences and bad?

Most people on here seem to use the K&N Rx4750. I have one on mine and I like it, but always open to see new suggestions. Don't go paper. If it holds water, it is a bad filter.

C'mon 30 somthin views and only one favorite air filter, I wouldn't think you'd all have the exact same one. Truth is I'm thinking about going with the *&B Powerstack because it seems like a similar product to the K&N but a little more reasonably priced. It also has a reverse type cone in the front for added surface area over the conventional cone. http://www.intenseperformance.com/pr...e_filters.html Any thoughts?

I will agree I think most if not all members here run a K&N. I myself just run the drop in filter untill I buy the FWI from Intense.

I'm using a cheapo cone filter from Autozone. That'* all I could afford at the time. It does me fine until I get my RX-4750.

*&B 9" cone filter here and love it!

It looks like the *&B filters would flow better then a K&N but can't go wrong with either.

I originally chose the RX-4750 before it even went into production for one simple reason. The Series 1 SSEi'* have a tight spot with the double washer bottle (for headlight washers), and that filter (from the specs I read) fit and filled the small area we had to play with in the most efficient manner possible.

It also provides a location for the IAT, and a broad, flat base for adding a heat shield. You may find something that suits you better, but it'* proven a popular affordable solution for us.

www.ajusa.com has the best prices on it.

I thought a cone would have been a better fit but had no problem with my 4750 and liked not having to make a hole for the IAT (even though it wouldn't have been hard). Can find them for $50-55 and sometimes on sale for less. Doesn't seem unreasonable to me. Especially since all you have to do is wash and re-oil when it gets dirty.
