proline setup is crap as soon as you run in dusty conditions, plus the outer layer is not long enough so it easily slips off the mounts... I tried it and gave it away.

stock mugen + PSR foams are good to very good although slightly on the expensive side.

6mik setup is the absolute best I've tried, the only filter designed by an engineer (Claude Lachat... it's actually a Piktor filter) who knew what he was doing and understood that a filter isn't just a device that "holds" foams as it as to properly maintain them in place too. Both foams are properly stuck on there, no risk of any "leak". The Hobbytech foams are better than the 6mik, the cells are finer so they filter even better in very dusty conditions.

That's a nice looking filter set, where does one find those to purchase?

in western europe they're easy to find... in the US, not sure who distributes them -

http://www.6mik-racing.com/index.php?page=distributeurs


mmmh... no us distrib... try to do a worldwide search on ebay, there certainly is someone selling them overseas (to me, overseas means the US )

They REALLY are the shiznit. When you try them you don't go back and you can't help thinking why hasn't anyone designed them like this so far. Some of the older kyoshos with the metal structure were thought kind of like these...

Thanks Paul, will look into it. Do other filter elements fit? I wonder if mugen or proline foams will work for down the road.

Currently, Im using the ProLine Air Filter system, with Power Save Foams, Mugen Oil on the inner filter, TKO Rock Oil on the pre-filter, wrapped up in a Outerwears filter cover....Excessive? Maybe...but I dont get dirt in my engines
