Important useful information
There are many different types of automotive airfilters / element replacements available today.
Special induction kits like "cone type" air filters and extension pipes can be bought at supermarket-type / automotive shops and fitted at home in the conventional d.i.y style. 
This is dangerous and more often than not a absolute waste of money.  
One is easily confused or convinced that the vehicle is stronger or faster simply because the induction noise is far greater 
The average vehicle today is kitted with a highly sophisticated electronic control system, which automatically changes the engine settings while you are driving.
The most common change being a de-tune if or when a extreme temperature is detected.
Air intake temperature as well engine operating temperatures are measured by way of electronic sensors and all this information is automatically taken up by the ECU after which the settings are adapted accordingly
Any normally aspirated internal combustion engine performs at its optimum when it is fed with at the very least, absolutely clean ambient temperature outside air. In the case of forced induction engines the charge temperature needs to be as cool as possible.
What we are saying in a nutshell is that air filters which are exposed to any additional under bonnet temperature will have a proportional negative effect on the engines power output.
Don't be fooled by a dyna-test which indicates good power / performance gains if the test was performed with the vehicles bonnet open when testing airfilters or boxes.
The dyna test should be as close as possible to real driving conditions i.e. bonnet closed if the airfilter box has been changed in any way.
Automotive airfitler manufacturers normally make huge claims regarding fuel consumptions and power outputs, but don't be misled.
A good airfilter like the foam type performs at its best when the engine is properly optimized after the fitment.
The overall drivability is enhanced substantially when the airfilter is installed and the vehicle is setup by specialists like SAC, the preferred distributors and installers.
All SAC outlets are preferred distributors and installers of Sportflo airfilters. 
Sportflo airfilters keep engine lubricants & intake systems cleaner
Sportflo oil treated foam airfilters keep engine lubricants and intake systems cleaner for longer periods while successfully balancing the following criteria:
Efficiency dirt stopping
Capacity dirt loading
Resistance airflow
Independent filter testing has proven that small quantities of dirt less than 10 microns have no significant effect on engine wear.
The second layer of foam used in the Sportflo filters together with the polymer fluid arrests dust as fine as 8 microns - is this peace of mind or what?
