Re: What's the best high flow air cleaner?

went to my customshop with the same question. I want the best flowing airfilter. I've got the screamin' eagle performance job on my 120 but obviously want the best flow I can get. The custom shop guy I go to told me he got another 7 hp on a 110 using a zippers. He's got a dyno and that's good enough for me. I put down the 100 bucks canadian and switched out the SE for the Zippers. If you look at em side by side you can see why the Zippers is better.

Icemann, sorry but still need to ask....why? What is it that makes it better? What does it do?
Sorry...not trying to be a buster. As Joe Friday said, "Facts, just the facts."

Re: What's the best high flow air cleaner?

How much a filter flows depends on material, design and surface area. Foam is the worst. Paper is in the middle. Oiled cloth is the best. Back plate venturis help with flow. Size matters. A bigger element will flow more air. Or you can just take Red's word for things. I like my K&N, it's the biggest filter that will fit in the stock cover without forcing my knee out, it's oiled cloth and it has the cutest little velocity stack on the back plate.

Its best because it has the most "flow area", deepest and widest pleats. the base has a great radius that promotes flow. hows that ???????????
