Re: Air intake design & modifications


looks good!

i was thinking about doing somthing like this for a little while now as the exy wont be seeing much dirt!

i know what u meen about the roar, i was tinkering one day and took the bottom of the air box off, cable tied the k&n in place and went for a run around the block. The sound was unreal!

i know thts not an ideal thing to do, but i put it all back together straight away emoticon

Thanks Roger, one more important note that the DIY Installation Guide didn't mention, so am gonna add that in.

I have been driving with un-oiled filter since Saturday emoticon I will do that today.



Jalal:

That amount of driving should not have any negative impact.

Thanks for the links you posted.

There are actually 2 filters that you could use:
The RX-4960 - the one you noted.
The RU-4960 - same only different....

The first one also allows air from the bottom while the second one has a rubber closure at the bottom - no air from there.

They also use different Drychargers..

The RX-4960 uses the RX-4990DL
The RU-4960 uses the RX-4990DK

I suspect that the RX model is more expensive than the RU model - - by how much remains to be seen.

Either one will be better than the supplied one from Cosmo and the RX looks to be the best.

Any idea on price or from where you will source the products ??

Cheers

P.S. I have not taken this off-line because I suspect that the interest in the CAI system will only grow and other members will want to know about the filters / Drychargers as well....

Thanks Roger,

Do you think it will fit the Cosmo pipe size at the flange? Isn't our pipe size 3 inch? If so, the flange of this filter seems to only go to 2.75 inch..is that OK?

I got the K&N links open and just waiting for the distributor to open their doors in about 20 minutes from now. I will call and get prices for both filters and both covers and update it here.

No need to take this off-line, as it'll be of interest to others for sure.

My apologies to Ryan. the DIY Guide DOES mention the fact that the supplied filter doesn't come pre-oiled. I must have missed that bit when doing the install.

Exactly mate, too many things on mind LOL emoticon

Called the K&N distributor just now and was advised that these filters are not available for the Australian market and need to be ordered from the US (through them) so I think you will have a better luck inquiring about them from Canada than me.

They will come back to me with pricing on both filters types and both dry covers, but it'll be good if you can initiate an inquiry from your end as well, so we can compare prices.

Re: Air intake design & modifications


Roger,

I have oiled my filter as soon as I got back from work and measured it. It is indeed 3 inch at the flange.

This means that the filter we need to be looking at is the RX-4990 or the RU-4990 (HERE)

I prefer to go with the RX type which would give more airflow, as it doesn't have the rubber base.

We're on the same page now - - have sent you several emails.

As I suspected, there is a fair difference in the price of the 2 filters - the RX type being + $22 US.

That being said, it's a one-shot investment.

Using the filter wrap will decrease intake by only 2 % - the RX model would offset that loss over the RU model.

RX-4990 + RX-4990DK (I think the last letter denotes color) is the required package.

It took awhile, but we seem to have the complete package (including BPV) sorted out.

Cheers

Good stuff Roger. I will now intitate an inquiry through my contacts for this filter type and the cover, hopefully I can get a good price for it. I think it'll be worth the money paid for it in the long run.
