Hello,
I have read some conflicting opions concerning aftermarket airfilters and boxes. I was looking at the Taliaferro High Flow Intake on genuinesaab.com http://www.genuinesaab.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=47_53&products_id=311. Some people say that there are performance increases, while others said that hese came at a high price, becuase the aftermarket filters were alot less restrictive and could let contaminants into the engine. Without opening up that argument again, I was wondering if anyone has specs about the filtration amount on the stock filter versus the one in the link. I think this can end the argument once and for all because if the stock and aftermarket filters have the same filtration (I guess in microns, I forget how it is measured), but the aftermarket filter is bigger and the box is less restrictive, than there is no potential for damage to the engine. Oh, if it makes a difference my car is a 2005 9-5 Arc with 20k miles.
Thanks,
Jack
