    Ah ha ha aha ha ha ha ah ha ha ha classic, i'd have laughed my head off at the guy if he'd said that to me. I've found stones and god knows what else in old filters, what a pleb.

    New garage needed, he'll be telling you british roads are too smooth so you don't need springs anymore soon

    some racing engines run on open bellmouth cones with no filter. Mind you they last for 1 race if your lucky.
