air filter selection

Just curious to know what other people are using for air filters on turbo setups. There are so many options out there. I want something good for Street use all while having a high cfm.

Spectre Air Filter 6.7 in Tall 8138: Advance Auto Parts

That's what I run. Someone had a similar one on the forums on their turbo setup, but it was smaller than this one and it sucked the center piece in and did quite a bit of damage. I believe theirs was a 2.5"-3" one, while mine's a 6.7".

Yes I remember seeing that thread on here "turbo destroyed". It really has me thinking about the nessesity to run a quality filter. I wonder if spectre ever made it right with him. Any input on running a K&N?

I'm running a K&N cone filter, I believe a 2510. I doubt the filter is much of a restriction in my case considering I'm using the stock heads and manifold on my 89.

That would be me and that would be a NO. Two months out of warranty! Precision made it right. I only paid 1150 out the door for a 7675! Said they felt bad for me................ I said thanks in the most sincere way.

I used the K & N: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00062YQQG?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00
On the dyno, I removed it to see if it would make anymore horsepower and there was about a 3HP difference on the one pull without the filter.

I have heard, though, that the turbo will just spool faster to make up for any filter restriction, which is obviously not a desired behavior. I believe at my boost levels (10-12lbs) its not a big deal.

AFE has about anything you need and are very high quality. Summit's website also has a very nice "filtering tool" for sizing....

If you run blow thru maf I would choose a non oiled style filter.
