final decision

Ok, What would be the best air filter, cone filter, name brand to get as of right now? I'm going to make my final decision based on y'alls experiences and knowledge. Going to purchase one as soon as I get a solid response. I know K&N is a good filter. So far i've only researched Buschur and i know they make good power. Ams? Any other? What do you recommend? Give me prices and results. Thanks!

I recommend not touching your intake. Why do you want one anyway? There are MUCH better ways to spend your money.

I'm in need of a new filter and the one I wanted was the K&N which was about 70-80 bucks. If I could find something better at the same price. I would go for it. Right now, I'm debating on either a ams k&N cone filter and adapter kit for 60 bucks or a buschur for 80. Im leaning more on the AMS. What do yall think? On another note.. the manual boost controller seems to be the most popular. Could I get one and up the boost a bit or lader. thanks

I know what you mean. I was supposed to be working on my car a couple of weeks ago, but then winter decided to stay a little longer. This will be the first nice weekend we've had since the brief warm spell at the end of March/beginning of April.

I'll probably be doing the work myself (my father-in-law, who would have been able to help me a couple of weeks ago, now has his weekends all booked up until June), but the plus side is that I'll now have access to the body shop at work for the full weekend, which means a lift, air tools, etc.

If all goes well then, I'll be doing: Buschur TBE; Buschur LICP; Forge MBC; Buschur SS clutch line; Stoptech SS brake lines; rotating the tires; and changing the oil. The Buschur shifter bushings and Autometer boost gauge are already done, so the only thing left (unless I end up getting the Buschur air filter), after all this is the Walboro fuel pump, but I've got to wait for my fuel level to get down before tackling that.

I have my new "race" version of the Magnus motorsports sheet metal intake sitting next to me right now. I almost put it on a month ago when it was in the low 70's outside, but I did not expect another month of bad weather so I put it off until "next week".... then "next week" turned out to be 28 degrees for the high, with snow flurries!

I have been kicking myself for the past month, and now finally may have a chance to put it on

Back on topic, if you are planning on a tune to go with it you can't go wrong with the buschur cone filter, if you are not planning on a tune right away don't bother geting ANY filter upgrade until you plan on doing the tune. Also, I don't recomend putting in the fuel pump until you are ready for the tune, it makes you run even richer at WOT than you already do and in some cases (not all) throws a check engine light.

If I buy one, should I get the K&N cone filter with adapter for 60 or the BUscHuR for 80? which one is best? And Can I just put it on for a short term and reinstall the stock one until i actually go tune my car. Let me know! thankS

You would not want to put on a new open air filter until you are tuned! In most cases it will make you car run badly.

You could however put a drop in K&N panel filter in without any problems, but no reason to do that if you are going to go to an open air in the future.

Switching back and forth between air box and open filter would not be good for the car. Please listen to all the people who are telling you not to do it unless you are tuned, we have nothing to gain from telling you this except keeping an EVO healthy!

Finally to answer your question about the K&N over Buschur, well that is preference but I personally purchased the Buschur filter for $80 plus the MAF pipe for $200 (They offer a package for $250). The package will basically replace your entire Intake versus just getting the filter which leaves the stock MAF pipe. The new MAF pipe smooths the out the air as it enters the turbo. The Buschur Intake with a tune has had tremendous success and has dyno proven results.

Tuning costs so much. For now, I guess I will just purchase things along the way and tune all of them at the same time. Now I need to find a tuner near me. One who know's what he or she is doing. Let me know whatsup. Thanks

Tuning is not expensive at all relative to other mods. The HP/$ is better than any mod out there except for maybe an MBC.

I have all of this listed in my EcuFlash tutorial.

Yangs, please do not type like that. Type normally with proper English.
