Smile Heh, don't kill me: K&N or JR or what air filter?

Search seem to be on a holiday break, so I'll have to ask. I have an old Subie and I'm planning to buy just the filter panel not the cone shape model.

So since here in Finland there is almost 40% difference in prices, JR cheaper, I'm asking is there any major or any difference at all?

I know that the K&N can be cleaned so it supposedly can last for many years. What about JR - can it be cleaned?

I'm planning to do myself also an CAI and to take of the intake silencer or whatever it's called in the right fender. Plannings are ready, but it's so hard to find aluminium pipe here. To my knowledge this should make a slight improvement with the filter panel. Is the benefit throughout the power band or only at the high rpms?

Oh and can someone explain to me what makes the aftermarket "tuning" filters flow better? Concluding from the price tag they should have been made from a lot more expensive material or technique.

Thanks in advance and please be patient with a question(s) like this

Have to bump...
Wonder if you guys in the States even have JR filters. Think it's an European company...

I have not ever herd of JR filters, so I don't know. K&N's are good filters.

I have the K&N air filter in my factory air box matched with the Ganzflow CAI. It seems to work extremely well.

Larry from imprezars.com also sells amsoil. I've heard the pros and cons to both. It's up to you which one you get.

Stacey

Personally, I have had the K&N and the Amsoil in my MY00 RS. I truly believe the Amsoil does a better job overall. Better airflow, and better dirt capture. (Oh yeah, a bit better sound IMO with the CAI)

Good Luck,
Stefan

Cool

I think I'll buy the K&N since it's well known brand and people have good experiences about it. Here in Finland aren't Amsoil filters - haven't seen one. Thanks for the advices.

Going to summer gottage to spend the Finlands Midsummer. Maybe I'll go even fishing
And must try to fix the rattling exhaust, guess it's the heat shield...
