Honestly, the gains are so little you wouldnt need to worry about it. With that being said, I always buy K&N filters for all cars i ever own because of the reputation they have, the million mile warranty and reusable and ease to get filter cleaners which you can buy at almost any auto retail stores, but thats just me.

Different names but they all work the same imo...some just have more hype.

If you don't want to worry about filter oil go for the Cosworth, if you don't mind cleaning/oiling go with the Perrin or Works.

There was a test floating around on SupraForums where they tested the actual filtration as well as power. HKS and Blitz were the 2 worst, filtering almost nothing. (White filter sheets after the filter were black). Apex'i and K&N were the cleanest.

Things may have changed, but I won't be using their filters anytime soon :\


Wouldn't mind seeing a revised 86-specific test along the same measures. Sure some vendor wants to win the gold medal and do it

I've seen picture of foam filters (not sure if it was a HKS)..but they started to get torned to peices after while, they aren't made to last forever. I would get anything but foam, foam's good for lawn equipment :P.

K&N. I have 1 with no issues and yes I've checked for oil on my sensor. Drop ins are the way to go if you want to let your engine breathe and don't want a whole new intake system (the stock setup is pretty good). Just my opinion...

Biggest issues on K&N's were newbies over-oiling them, then wondering why their filter is dripping into their MAF.
