    Using a K&N Cone filter,
    Sound is amazing and it really does not lose any power.... however my mpg goes higher .

    Apexi, would sound the same i guess.

    I tried bypassing my bcs, however I'm getting a slight chatter that sounds like a 1200 hp supra but I'm scared of it...

    Apexi filters are excellent. I have one and love it. They are better than the K&N IMHO as they aren't an oil type filter and there's less chance of stuffing an AFM by oil contamination...

    I put one of these on about 4 months ago and love it!!! I have not noticed any loss in the hot weather and the sounds are grear, nice little induction noise but i love the fact it sets the standard d/v off, although im not sure why it does this??
