Fatty, try to combine your posts into one reply instead of replying two times in a row.

Take the filter off and fill it with water. Tell us what happens. eBay special intakes are notorious for having filters that flow worse than the OEM paper filter. Many of them actually hold water.

no, it is just as good as a k&n filter becuase insane LSS bought the k&n intake and they are very similar filter, almost identical, also my filter is washable, it says you can use a hose, so i dont think it would hold water

There are alot of filters out there that are very similar, and almost identical to a K&N, and they hold water. You can't determine the filter media pore size by looking at it. Unless you have a nice microscope in the garage?

There are MANY copycat ricer filters out there that actually HURT performance. If they don't hold water, some of them have a pore size too large and they don't filter well enough.

WillWren has a wealth of knowledge...and like many of us after a number of times of saying something similar...it'* honed down to something that can come across on a forum as sounding differntly than it'* intended.

He means well ..and only wants to help others by passing on learned knowledge.

Don't spread it around too much...but he'* actually a nice guy, who likes to help.

I never hated you for it. I was giving you friendly blunt advice about them for your own good.

As far as the filter is concerned, I understand you WANT it to be a quality one, but that isn't going to make it so. You need to CHECK it. One of the hardcore Series 1 L67 guru'* around here (DrJay) had a water-holding knockoff on his car at one point. I was standing beside him on one of my weekend 'bonneville forays' to washington when he poured water in it.

That was a cheap eBay filter.

When I type short, terse, and to the point advice, it'* not because I'm a flaming ******* (at least not all the time). It'* because I have limited time to respond to each topic, and we have over 1000 new posts each day.

Part of my job here is to make sure you get the help you need, and that you 'fit' in smoothly. When I give you advice, it may be mechanical, and it may be advice to help you better fit with the community (which isn't hard to do, we're a pretty mellow bunch in comparison to other Forums).
