We have terrible dust, I have to replace the outer 3-4x per day, the inner is always clean though. Motorex filter oil FTW!

Really???? I know people switching and finding new jobs bro, I mean if you spent as much time filling out applications and sending out resumes as you did worrynig about this golden mill you'd probably have a job homie.

Do you know how much time I spend searching for jobs on a daily basis? Of course you don't. Comments like that can only make someone look stupid. So think twice before you start to call my character or motivation into question like so many of you pricks have done in this thread. I think I've kept my cool but enough is enough. This thread isn't about my fucking job search or how I'm going to pay my bills, trust me all that's taken care of. I've somehow managed to raise 2 kids and provide for my family for the last 10 years, so to all of you (and you know who you are) just keep your comments related to the thread or keep them to yourself.

I mean christ, I only got laid off a week ago

I been reading this thread from the beginning. Frosty if I was you I find other people to talk too. This is bash central. We already know he has no job or funds to fix motor. We know its he's fault. How many times do we have to here this. The guy is know and asking for advice. Why does he have to take all the shots. Unless your in his shoes, in his town , you shouldnt bash him. Yeah we might do things different but thats why we're all different. Give the guy advice. Like recommending outer wear for the filter or show him were to get a piston and sleeve. Everyone has did something stupid. We live and learn. I'm not taking shots just wish you guy were a little positive.

mfrosty, Ill try to keep my post on topic. I just replaced my blown OS.28 so I feel your pain. I do agree that the package has horrible labeling and see how some could make the mistake of buying it thinking its inners and outers (including myself). I think though I would of stopped myself once I had to cut the inner filter to make it fit (being a solid piece). Did you question it at all why you had to take that step? Just courious. Hope everything works out for you.

Default Christmas at my house today :D

So not only did my new MM5 7 port show up today along with the new P/S/R for my 5 port, but I got another unexpected package from PSR! I take back anything bad I said about them.

I wish! I bought the GO stuff from Massive Mods, PSR sent me two packs of RC8 inner and outer filters w/oil and the decal sheets.

A guy at my local track had this happen with his RC8 air cleaner a couple of weeks ago, destroyed his engine.

I wouldn't do that. It's all about to go back to PTM for some new ceramics, and to have Brian re-build and re-mod the new P/S/R
