Ive found an AEM drop in panel filter for the 11 wrx. Its a dry filter so no oil, but i havent been able to find any user reviews on it. I was thinking of the k&n one, have read many positive reviews, however a draw back is its oiled. I hear the stock paper filter is actually fine too, but mine needs replacing so im looking at all options. Im currently running a stg 1 94 oct AP map. Thanks for any help
AEM makes good filters.. I would imagine it will outlast a standard paper filter. As far as performance wise, it's not going to do much of anything.
yeah im not expecting any performance gains really. just looking for a better quality filter than OEM. ive heard there may me more sound from the aftermarket filter. thx for the advice ppl
Be careful when running panel filters using OTS Cobb AP maps. States clearly that panel filters should not be used with AP maps. I would just monitor your knock and all that like normal if your going to do it, not quite sure what the outcome is, but of course they have to put "not advised to do this...etc etc".
