Macht Schnell Filter installed

So I orderd a Macht Schnell filter, installed it this last weekend and took it for a drive to/from work today.

When I went to install it, as I took the OEM filter off, I looked up through it at the sun and you coudn't even see light through the filter paper element. It was barely dirty. Just thick paper element. The Macht Schnell filter, I could see light through the filter element. At least it tells me it'll be a little easier for the engine to breath. Fit perfectly with no issues.

Driving: I probebly won't go get a dyno test done until I get all mods someday but my butt-calabrated dyno says there is a slight improvement in acceleration, engine responce, and minimul noise improvement from the filter but at WOT I can hear the suction a bit more.

Overall: Glad I got it and not money wasted. Hope you all find the same results.

The stock filter has charcoal impregnated in it. Plus the pleat density is low. I like mine more now that I swapped it out too!
