Sinota/Simota VS Hurricane -- Drop-In Air Filter..

Recommended Posts

Neutral Newbie

Hi Guys..

I've got 2 choices now..

Sinota/Simota Drop-In Air Filter at S$70.
VS
Hurricane Drop-In Air Filter at S$90.

Both Brand New. Anybody tried these two? Any comments which is better? Lets not look at the Figures. I just want comments about the Performance, Fuel Efficiency. I heard that Hurricane Filter have bigger holes in the filter, which means more dust can get thru' it. Any comments..?

hurricane is 50 microns. some brands claim as small as 4 microns. i did a comparison b4 for 3 filters.

 

one was hurricane. the other 2 brands not too nice to disclose. I chose hurricane although its more expensive.

 

why?

 

1. stainless steel mesh made in japan, not taiwan

2. 50 microns may not seem that small when compared to stock air filter, but honestly, if u want more airflow, the holes gonna get slightly bigger.

3. 2 two brands that claim got 20 and 4 microns were crap. Can slot a strand of hair through. human adult hair averages from 80-90 microns.

4. in terms of performance, im happy ah. smoother engine, livelier engine, improved pick up.

 

hope this helps.

hmm..well quality does matter my fren. and the mesh count also. the thinner the wires, the more compact the mesh count and thus, better filtration.

 

there are some reasons i cant disclose openly. im not working for any filter brand, jus that i managed to see some tests done.

 

anyway 70 is a good price still.

Hmm.. Okay.. So you'd recommend Hurricane ones? Are they easy to wash? Take out, spray with water, dry, put back. Am I right?

More air input = more dust input (common saying)

More dust input = engine [jawdrop] in long run

K&N need to be oil average every 20K

That's about 6 months once for most average drivers

So its not that ma fai afterall

 

Bro if u wanna more air input why not do it our specialise way

Hook a 90mm delta focus flow

Confirm fly [laugh]
