I live on a dirt road and the volume of dust and dirt in my engine compartment is voluminous and I have to use a pre-filter on my K&N and clean the engine compartment every other day my condition is extreme but even normal condition that filter is a bad design. 120 cells per inch filters out what micron dust particle? I believe you can see the particle with your naked eye and that will sandblast your engine internals over time. Al another example of you trying to pawn something half rate and damageing off as innovative and novel go away. He doesn't need to send that throttle body out for work he can take care of it right on site the throttle body doesn't restrict airflow until you are making big horsepower so you don't need to send it out for "big bore service".

That is why I point the top to the sky to take pictures with. Good design for max air flow, idea didn't come from me, came from Simota air filter factory.
" Porsche there is no substitute" I always liked that saying. Air cooled is the only way to go!
