MG MGF Technical - PIPERCROSS & K&N
|I am thinking of having the K&Ni air filter fitted to my car, what are the benefits of having the Pipercross fitted as well -- Or are they the same thing?|
they are just different manufacturers. Good idea to get the induction kit, rather than just the filter.
Makes a big difference.
|So should I have both fitted???|
Its not recommended to fit both a K&N and a Pipercross!! They are both air filters the difference being that the K&N is made from cotton gauze and the Pipercross is made out of sponge rather like the one used when you do the dishes!
Somewhere there are the results of a test carried out by Rob and others on various filters and induction kits. I do not believe the Pipercross was tested only Ramair who are very similar. The K&N was tested though and I believe it attained the best results. For the money the K&N is the one to go for although I have no doubt others may prefer Pipercross!
Well and truly K&N'd
|Russ, the power curves for K&N, Ramair and Pipercross filters (both the PX and Vector) can be found @ http://go.to/mgfgallery --> Technical --> Filters.|
Pipercross are the cheapest filters available, and would be very nearly as effective as the K&N, but do not come supplied with the cold air scoops. As a result they probably loose power over standard- especially in warmer climates where engine compartment temperatures are much higher...
