Performance Air Filter

Is the performance air filter at 200 $ a lot better than the ones at 25 $ on e-bay ? I look to install one on my 1984 Carrera with the adapter.Thank you very much for advice.

You realatively new to the board so welcome. Use the search button and you will find a wealth of info with a wide range of opinions on stock versus aftermarket filters.

The search will tell you that the stock filter flows more than enough air. It is the exhaust you need to free up.

Odds are, the performance air filter will reduce your engine's power output, and increase the amount of dirt going in.

What about K&N stock(rectangle) replacement filters?

Thanks!

Further more, the stock filter / box has a very maintenance friendly design - makes it real easy for example to reach the upper rear right shock bolt...

No better and more expensive than the stock filter.

I very much prefer the stock air filters, open up the outer cover to make more noise if you must.
