Filtration Quickie....

Ok, I've just completed a search and read nearly every thread on air filters on here.

My question is this;

If my sole priority is having the best air filtration (not flow), is the OEM air filter the best choice over offerings from DNA and MWR?

I realize that the aftermarket filters will flow more air and yield all of the benefits that come with that, but that's not my main priority.

I want to have a filter in there that filters the best even if it is at the cost of some air flow.

Thanks up front!

Seb ..

IMHO. There's nothing wrong with the OEM filter and if maintained properly, works as well as any other aftermarket alternatives..

Oiled foam will always do a better job of filtration. Just ask the off road racers.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

I have a supply of UNI foam that I use to make custom oiled filters. they offer superior filtration as well as added performance.
Send me some pics and details and I'll create one for you.

There's pictures of the MWR somewhere in my photo album, although the one I use is the race version and is a bit different to the normal road version, I believe for the road version you just get the foam part, and install it into the OEM plastic frame, the race version has the Ally frame - http://www.designcorse.co.uk/MV_Agus...WR_Air_Filters

Might be a good idea to ask Al the question, or I think Kreativ bought one also, maybe ask him.

The filter's no secret, it's the "performance trickery" you spoke of that I'm interested in.
Noel seems to get along pretty well with his stick pokin' around here so I figured, It's never too early to start!

I'm no expert on this John.
The way I understood it when told a couple of years ago was like this.
Some bloke way up North developed the MWR filter with a plate that deflects the incoming air (forced and full of bugs) and settles it in a performance gaining way around the airbox.
Now, I've pulled some OEM air filters out of F4's, packed full of road scraps in the middle of the filter, to the point that some of the OEM filters had holes in them.
This does not happen on the MVR race filter, I assume because of the ally deflection plate. It works for me.
