but it comes with this warning:

WARNING: This product is made for track usage only and is not intended by the manufacturer for use on public streets or highway.

Why would that be???

might have slightly less filter material than a street one as there is going to be a lot less debris

theres no such thing as an illegal air filter stevo! its just designed for track use, so probably skimps on filtration a bit to get better air flow

not too woried about "hot summer air" not in england anyway

Yeah adam i heard ya the first time . Its a good sealed box (just like a panel filter ) So wont make too much difference with heat etc... but should make some performance differences

sealed box will be better than a panel filter as the filter in the sealed box will allow much air to flow through it

i tried a std airbox with panel filter on my clio and it choked mid range to top end even compared to an open filter

the sealed kit i tried was much more responsive throughout the range
