The Racingline Intake Filter upgrades replace the restrictive factory paper filters with an improved, high flow and
reusable lifetime foam filter. This upgrade is one of the most cost-effective improvements one can make to
increase power and fuel economy and is desirable for anyone looking for an improvement that does not
deviate far from the factory intake design.
Construction & Development:
The Racingline intake filter is constructed from three layer open-cell polyurethane foam, which gives a high level
of filtration to protect the engine from contaminants in the air, while not restricting airflow. This same filter
material is used by F1 teams around the world due to it's excellent filtration and airflow properties. In Racingline's
experience, cheaper filter materials are unable to deliver the same flow and filtration resulting in a compromise
of engine performance.
Testing has shown a great increase in airflow over the factory paper filters which results in better fuel economy
and increased power. On turbo and supercharged engines, the increased airflow can result in a 10ft-lb of torque
increase, which translates to a positive gain you can feel during every day driving.
Installation & Maintenance:
The Racingline Filter is a direct factory replacement. Installing the filter is as simple as locating the factory unit and
replacing it with the new one. Service is also simple as the intake filter does not need to be replaced. It's a
lifetime filter, meaning it only needs to be cleaned every 20,000 miles.
