Re: air filter (p0cket penguins)

JR wasn't available at the time, BMC was tested and suggested by Jim Lill and Svenske was selling them (just not paying supplier for them evidently <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> ).

Re: air filter ("R" Kelly)

I'm not sure a poll is needed here. The filters are identical in function and performance as would be a K&N if they made it. <p>

You can't say the air filters are the 'same'. They might do the same thing, but they definately aren't the same.<p>In the past, some had posted of troubles fitting the air filters in the OEM airbox. We test fit all our BMC air filters in the OEM airbox before shipping them to customers.<p>I'd recommend upgrading the air filter if you plan on adding additional performance enhancing products to your R.

Re: (George @ ViVA)

I suspect from a pure performance perspective, the BEST filter is NONE!<p>Which of the filters is best for what it was intended, to filter the intake air to reduce engine wear?<p>Is there any product data available for a good compromise on air flow versus filtration, and how that might compare to the stock filter?

I choose the BMC as it was the only "higher flowing" air filter available at the time. If I were to upgrade a stock filter now, I would replace with the JR so long as it's cleanable.<p>Kevin

You guys realize the stock paper filter will out-flow a cotton gauze filter each and every-time in a flow test? <p>The claim that K&N filters will generate more HP is bunk. <p>The only advantage a cotton gauze filter will have over a paper filter is it will stay cleaner longer and is reuseable.

Soooo... is there a difference between the BMC and the JR one that IPD is selling?<p>Also, has anyone gotten theirs from IPD? I see their website states that they are still awaiting delivery on it.

Re: (Scott Hart)

Installed my BMC today.<p>Not noticably louder.<p>Not noticably faster.<p>Glad I was only expecting a good filter. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Glad to finally have a washable, though. I live in a new development under construction and it is DUSTY (you should see my work truck). New filters would have killed me soon!

Re: air filter (p0cket penguins)

Stock. Anything else is pointless, UNLESS one drives in an environment where frequent maintenance is required...then the washable one would make sense.<br>
