Technically... it would still receive air from it's two inlets... but be able to possibly even suck in more?

it would suck underhood hot air but would sound a lot meaner

Most of the filters are the same... pick the company you like best and buy that one!

again to the guys at Fabspeed. This does look like another quality product.

I called a few places today looking for the BMC filter with no luck. The vendors listed in the first post here either didn't have them or didn't sell them. If anyone knows who has them in stock, let me know.

BMC filters are pre-oiled from the factory in Italy.

All you have to do, is install the filter and go.

I know that Fabspeed sells them because that's where I got mine but Joey also told me that they only received 2 of the redesigned filters and I was the lucky one to get the second one.

RPi sells them and Renn-Spec posted on this thread that they sell them too.

Good luck!

Called Fabspeed and they have some arriving shortly. Joe told me to expect mine next week. Looking forward to quick ~6hp!

Cheers

I don't know if you'll feel the 6hp but you're gonna love the sound it makes. I smile everytime I floor it.

Yes, a cleaning & re-oiling is necessary every 10-15 thousand miles.

But that is true for any oiled engine air filter. (regardless of the brand name)

It all depends on how dusty the road conditions are in your area.

My main fear is about how well this post-makert filter really fits on. I donīt want any bit of dust getting in the engine for just a little gain of HP
