I read that the MS provides a 6 hp gain.
I like the BMC because a lot of F1, Le Mans, and Superbike racing teams use them so you know that you're getting a product from a company that has track proven results. It doesn't get any better than F1 and Le Mans as your testing grounds.

As far as hp gains go, I have no proof or technical data to prove that but I doubt you will ever feel 6hp on a car that has 414 to begin with. I'm happy just knowing that the car breathes better than it did with the paper OEM filter.

Yeah, Joey was really cool and informative. The filter was also shipped to me with 2 days of placing my order. I will deal with them again.

That is exactly what they did. I'm not sure if they did anything else, but it came with it pre installed and also had an extra one depending on the application (US/Canadian car vs. European Car).

please pm me price.
I'm not saying it is better than MS, APE or aFe, the quality of the filter itself is very well put together and ships directly from Bologna, Italy. Even the instruction was filled with detailed photos and written in 4 international languages.

Give Joey at Fabspeed a shout and he'll give you a quote on the filter.
