Re: [DMCForum] Re: Jim's Air Filter



Hey Bill, 

Not arguing your capabilities, but you were the one just saying something
about numerous immobile cars in your driveway...

Regarding the air filter, I should have been more specific.  My filter is
in the corner of the engine bay, open to the free air, so it is pretty
accessible to dirt.  The stock filter is more protected and probably gets
dirty much slower.  

Regardless, there does seem to be a lot of particles floating around my
engine bay.  Some of this is bound to get sucked into the air intake. 
It's only been 5000 miles with that air filter since new, and it was
severely filled with muck- enough to significantly depreciate the peak
HP.

Jim
