Ya, I tried and compared it with paper filter. With everything else unchanged, my injector duty cycle increase by about 5.7%, which means air flow increase by about the same amount, and so hopefully the bhp too. However, I donít know the filtration effect of this filter. Letís face the fact, any filter that flows better means lower filtration. Since I am after bhp, I had taken it, bearing in mind that I may ended up need to spend a substantial amount to clean up the engine sometime later.

Well, for an air filte change, don't expect significant increase in torque and power. Sure won't feel anything one. If got extra cash, just buy and be happy with it lah.

Does that mean frequent engine oil change would suffice?

No its different. the engine oil goes around the piston while the air and fuel go inside a piston. so the paticles will enter the piston.

nope, that won't do, it's the air intake part that will be dirty, from the air filter all the way to into the combustion chamber

Errr....... what would happen if my injector duty cycle maxes out with the filter? Will I blow my engine? Any idea? Think I must be running at above 90% liao. sweatdrop.gif

I guess with the Hurricane Stainless Steel Filter, you can reach 90+% in a faster timing. That will means improvement in BHP which I believe is what you want. thumbsup.gif

Actually, my injector duty cycle is already almost maxed out if I'm not wrong. Yes, I want more bhp but need to understand the effects of the filter. If its only the bhp or torque curve that gets steeper at lower rpm, then think its fine.

But from Sheltie's feedback that injector duty cycle increases by another 5.7% using the Hurricane filter, I'm afraid that something adverse would happen when I'm boosting and injectors can't squirt anymore when it's required. rolleyes.gif

Dwoon, you mentioned boosting... if ur injectors max out then your car AF ratio will lean out... bad idea... esp if you're midway through boost and don't realise your engine is pinging.

Yes, That's what I feel too, that the AFR will start to lean out.

But I'm no expert in this area. Will the knock sensors sense this leaning out and compensate by retarding the timing?

Hmmm..... maybe if put it in then re-tune?

What's your take on this? Thanks.

the O2 sensor will send the signal tat the AFR is leaner, so ECU will automatically increase fuel........resulting more shiock feelings. laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif tongue.gif

Its probably thro a computer linking to the car computer or ECU. Its quite fun though looking at the data..
