    Yes m8. The VX engines give off a massive amount of heat so all your cone filter is doing is sucking all that hot air back into the engine making it perform worse. The best setup is a an airbox of some sort or closed cone with a dedicated cold air feed from the front area as in the how too's.

    There is no "best panel filter" to get just either go with a foam high flow filter from ITG, Courtenay Sport (like mine), K&N or similar they all do the same or just insert standard paper filter and change it evry 6 months.
