Panel Filters

Just picked up my second Scooby today!! It's a 2003 blob eye UK WRX. Just wondered people's opinions on the best aftermarket panel filter?

I'm tempted by HKS or Pipercross, but didn't know whether there is a "must have" option? Thanks.

Re: Panel Filters

Cool, I had a K&N induction kit on my GC8 so to change it up a bit I'm gonna go for a Green panel filter. Thanks for all your help guys.

Re: Panel Filters

The green stuff HKS you normally can pick it up of ebay for around 35 but both HKS AND K&N do the same job good air flow.



FROM WORKS THE REAL DEAL.

Re: Panel Filters

def a good idea to stay panel filter unless yoru forced to go indy kit, if you go indy kit go cold air feed inner wing, but you'll mroe then likley need a map to cope with that amount of airflow change.

Got an indy kit on mine purely cos of goin front mount.

Re: Panel Filters

I do plan to eventually go for a full induction kit, but it'll need a re-map as you say. So a good high flow green filter will do for now until I have the funds for the induction kit, full stainless and a re-map - which I want to do in one hit later this year.
