If the stock air filter puts no restriction(as shown by a air filter restriction gauge) how can a filter that flows more cfm make more power?
If the engine is getting 100% of the air it wants at WOT with no restriction, putting a larger filter on it won' t get you more hp.
If someone on here can show me how a filter that causes no restriction cost the engine hp I'd like to hear your theory on that.

ROD
Correct, assuming no vac seen at 100% WOT at redline/max cfm. The only other reason for a larger filter beyond that is longer change intervals before vac/restriction is eventually seen.

It could. Depends on the size of the filter. They are primarily used in off road situations as a pre filter to repel dirt and some water.

I use an alternative which may sound silly but works great, and its cheap. Panty hose. I don't care about heavy dirt and water, but do care about the sand and debris that accumulates quicker on the filter due to my cold air snorkel. Quite a bit of road debris over short time gets on the filter because of that direct airflow. The panty hose breathes extremely well like nothing there, but has a really tight fine mesh that blocks all but the extremely fine dust. Keep the filter cleaner much longer and protects it.
