    Default Air Filters

    I'm sure this has been asked before, but I can't find it!

    My R8 has the Walkinshaw exhaust - great bit of kit. I've recently had a K&N air filter fitted however, ever since, the car has been noticeably quieter with far less pops and bangs - this is not good, and not what I had anticipated!

    Can anyone advise of a more suitable air filter - or is it just a coincidence!?!?

    Doesn't make much sense.

    Under load it should flow better than standard, so should not be quieter.

    Under over-run, the throttle is closed, so there is barely any air flowing through the filter.

    Oh, ok Mik - it certainly does pull cleaner and better - I'm just not sure why suddenly so quieter when lifting off! Just an oddity maybe!?!?!

    Change the K&N or a BMC filter, Walkinshaws sell them also.

    V8, not for everyone but 10/10 for your effort.
