  1. other two cons,hot air is getting sucked in and better acceleration at the expense of poor filtration.

    i don't know about stock replacement filter
    but this filter shows some magical "IC" figures as well as Kmpl increased, there is slight difference in performance

    COST - i am having this filter in my Wagon R bought in 2009 at Rs-4750. . . .

  3. Here are the few links you may want to go though before you decide use Cotton gauze filter, I am not for or against it,I will let you decide it as against some fan boys telling you it is the best or the worst :)

    As per the thread "At 4 microns there is bearing damage and and 20 bore damage"

    K&N filter bore damage - LR4x4 - The Land Rover Forum

    Results (Performed by K&N) of the ISO 5011 test for a new factory oiled K&N filter.

    Do K&N filters really damage MAF sensors??? - Page 3 - Benzworld.org - Mercedes-Benz Discussion Forum

    K&N air filter damage engine? - SaabCentral Forums

    BTW, There are 2 ways of doing things : 1 is to sit in front of a screen with a Keyboard and let Google do the Talking . And Paste the Results anywhere you get space to do that. :mrgreen:

    2 is to make your judgements based on Knowledge you gain from these information and implement them . (Dikhawon pe math jao, apni akal lagao) ;-)

    There will be difference of opinions. But there is some Glimmer of hope in the world or else the Sales Figure of FIAT would have been Zero in India. ;-) i.e. if people followed opinion using Google or other forums and general perceptions :roll:
