This intake utilizes an oval conical Pro 5R performance air filter with inverted top for maximum flow. This 5-layer progressive, oiled cotton gauze air filter provides maximum flow for increased horsepower and torque. This intake system is also is available in the Pro Dry S air filter, and oil-free synthetic media. The Pro Dry S provides a dramatic increase in airflow for improved horsepower and torque performance with 99.2 percent filtration efficiency.
