For those too lazy to read The article was okay, basically it just said that all the filters were about the same, but they made it sound like a performance filter was better than a paper one.

I guess this one is for Will or Paulnold (or anyone else with the ADTR intake)

Since I'll be getting my intake this week, how much of a "knock-off" is the cone filter. I know it'* not a K&N but is it also oiled like the K&N, and also washable? I'm not too worried since I know the performance will be better and it looks good. But the next Bonne I get will most likely be a Series 2 and I plan on keeping the intake for as long as I own a Bonne, which may very well be the rest of my life, so I hope it has a "1,000,000 mile warranty" like the K&N.

How easy would it be to paint the blue tip of the filter? The only way would be to mask off the rest of the filter? It probably doesn't come off in any way, right? You'll have to excuse this question, I don't have it yet. I'll probably paint it red or gold to keep my color scheme unified. Thanks.

It'* the same type of filter as the K&N. Mine was a bit on the dry side, so I used my kit to re-oil it last week. Don't over-do it, you can kill your MAF sensor if it gets oil on it. It should be washable just like the K&N. That blue rim doesn't come off. There'* epoxy under it to hold together the narrow end of the element and the nose screen. All of these are built pretty much the same.

The adtr aluminum intake itself rock'*.I ordered the unit with the iat sensor closer the the filter.As for the filter itself You and i both now an original [email protected] filter is the way to.(matches our engine bay,the warranty and the 5-10hp [email protected] stamp.)I would suggest asking Hector to swap the filter from the one i have to a [email protected]stly im going to try and get Hector to swap this one for a real [email protected] due to their outstanding warranty and also that I was told i would be getting a [email protected] filter!

It would probably cost more, but I bet people would be happier if they knew it was a k&n. I personally dont care as long as it is the same type, I dont think that it will make much of a difference. This sounds like a good situation for a dyno test...
