MG MGF Technical - Pipercross air filters

Hi all,

I have been recomended some pipercross air fiters (30)over K+N's has anyone had experience of them re any Power/Torque increase and increased noise.

They are for a VVC with stock exaust and cat fitted (which I don't want to take off).

See http://www.mgf.4mg.com/rolling_1.htm for the comparative tests between K&N, Ram air and Pipercross cone filters.

Nothing wrong with a 30 quid pipercross cone filter, but you aren't paying for the necessary development work that makes K&N, Ramair and ITG better products.

But there IS a way around this, insofar as you could mount the Pipercross on a 6" extention tube, and enclose it in a cold air box with cold air supply. Then you'd have similar performance to the above systems.

Hope this helps
Rob Bell
