ITG or Green Performance filter?



  Fiesta ST2
I've a standard airbox and was wondering what is better a ITG or a Green Performance filter? just wanted a bit more of a drone as the K&N is a pain in the rocks and I've taken it off!

wrong. some are worse than standard



probably not a bad idea TBH. better than an ITG that's for sure.

better in what way?

my belief is that i dont want dirty air going in as it can lead to valve seat recesion where the valves sink into their seats due to dirty air entering the engine.

imo i couldnt be arsed messing around cleaning filter then oiling it then hoping for the best i would buy standard and replace yearly.

Pisch! On a 1.2/RS whatever as direct replacement panel there all the same!

If we're talking Vipers/maxogens/gruppeM when design is involved then yes i agree there are some better than others. For example the gauze inside the Ramair filter broke up on mine...

I've tried fitting a standard airbox with green filter in it instead of cone filter. Took it on a track day and it seemed down on power compared to the cone filter. I've now got the cone filter back on and got a better airflow to it by strapping the cone filter to the inner support of the wing where the pipes come through from under the left headlight,using the rubber strap that comes with standard airbox. That seems to work really well and the performance is back again.

it's not pisch, it's fact. Removed an ITG panel and fitted a piper and gained 5bhp. ITG panels are restrictive, I've always thought it, now i've seen it proven.

I've seen superb inlet air temperatures with a very similar setup

Yeah that is a good set up, Simota do a Twin Charger Open Filter that makes the filter sit there, I had one on my 172, was awsome. But very hard to buy now.

Im still waiting for Sanspeed to see if they have one in stock, I would have thought 2 months after asking they would know.

Have you got any photos of this setup?

Thanks

Is that the same with the v6/ph1 quick ITG filter? Thought they were supposed to be the best filters around? All the race teams use them.
