almost all of the air filters on the market are the same, air flow will be near almost the same. the only thing that may dictate a difference in say "better" is the ability to last longer than the competitor or its able to grab or catch more of the particles that may slip through the filter when its been used for a duration.
a study i saw somewhere on a forum (that currently isnt around anymore) was showing a K&N vesus stock versus a knockoff K&N filter (like a ractive) and the results turned out to be that K&N was the best , the ractive one was just the same as K&N however it did not last quite as long, and the stock one was well........stock.
Ok, K&N is the best, but no big differences. I'm also lookin for a K&N, but they are very expensive (cause they should shipped from the US?) here; €73 = $89.50 = 121.50 CAD. What do they cost overseas? (art.no. KN33-2070)
