Post RB Innovations air filter

Any praises about their products? I am thinking about getting one with a 14" flexline and Sock because I am getting in a HPI Pagani Zonda Body and i don't want to compass cut another hole just for the air filter so I am going to redirect the filter to the front of the car into the foam bumper.

should i use air filter oil on the sock or the filter or none at all?

I have a 4-tec 3.3 and yeah, this car is damn heavy (but the 3.3. makes upfor it in power) and i am going to attempt to lighten it however i can.

RB Innovations stuff is normally pretty stupid..

Get the RB Concepts air filter, one of the best you can buy.

ok great, now i have a filter in mind :P but that doesn't help me solve my problem, i want to redirect the fuel filter so i won't have to cut anymore into the body.

where can i get 13mm tubing? (i am guessing it's 13mm because thats what rb innovations uses) gonna need atleast a foot and at most a foot and a half plus i need those kink springs.

Maybe RB innovations sells just the tubing seperately? If not, I will have to think about that one. I'm thinking along the lines of an automotive store carrying something that would work. Let me think about it and get back to you unless someone else thinks of it first. What does the "RB" version look like was used for their tubing?

not sure but like you said i could probably find it at a pepboys or something like that.

I ran into a new thought, low profile filters and found this: http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXVJ94&P=7

I think it's perfect for my application since now my upper chassis won't look like a mess, though the 4-tec chassis is alreadya mess in stock form

Are there any other low profile filters like this available? possibly lower?

would i run into any problems with this low profile filter for the 4-tec? I'd imagine a filter is a filter as long as it's oiled correctly to capture the deadly fine dust.
