    hiya guys and gals, just looking at updating my air filter, and done some research and found that alot of people have said that air filter up grades can damage the mass air flow sensor and dnt give much incress if anything they give a loss, and by sticking to the stock filter is better? is this true? if not whats the best to get looking at sending round 50.00ish and thinking of heat sheild kinda thing

    cheers

    All manufacturers tend to design the air boxes to give the best efficiency for the engine.....best advice m8...use a panel filter in the box rather than an induction kit.

    If you upgrade the panel filter go for one that doesn't require oiling
