StingRay I guess ebay was just lying to me about the filter not being shipped, because I got it today! :>

Other cars with plastic MAFs didn't have notches cut into the mating surface for the filter. It doesn't make a firm cylinder.

UnleashedBeast This is a bad idea, and let me tell you why. I know from experience with my Focus.

The MAF housing is plastic. When you tighten the filter with the band around the MAF housing, over time, the MAF housing becomes distorted. The housing begins to collapse under the heat and will loosen the air filter. The filter will then fall off.

This is why the OEM style air filters do not require a tightening band (being supported on the opposite end). For a banded filter to be effective, you need a better MAF housing.

nerdrage I got my buschur racing filter in last night. It was pooring rain so no pictures. It installs 10 times easier then the k&n filter, as it is slightly shorter then the K&N. Fits perfect.

Initial impressions. Sounds great. Cruising sounds like stock. Half throttle to full throttle sounds like a intake but not as loud. Ive only drove it once this morning to work with no coffee. Does it feel faster? Who knows my butt dyno was still asleep. Does it sound nice? Yes I love it and its staying in. The K&N with 7000 miles is for sale.
