Just wanted personal opinion on what you guys thought was the better air filter. I’m ditching my siderafts for a bit because I can tune a weber and get it going better but I have yet to purchase a filter.

I was debating between the ram flo filter or the k&n knock off which would be a thin square filter. I doubt there’s much difference?

Also, has anyone run a 32/36 with a strut bar inside a 510? I was wondering if the t3 strut bar will even clear if I have the filter

Located in SoCal.

Just trying to figure it out.

strut bar really needed? I never had them on anymy 510s

weber sells a short 1.75 tall air cleaner. and the standard size also.

webercarbsdirect.com sell them and Piercemanifolds


Throw on some Weber sidedrafts, Rising Sun hood.... call it good

The above. Get the Weber filter and skip any strut bar.

Strut bar? Just get the weber filter, make sure it clears, they have different sizes.

Yes, I have run an air cleaner on a DGV on a 510 with a strut tower brace. Mine were custom made, so it really depends on the brace.

Of course I know there’s always the option of not running a strut bar but I already have it so I might as well.

And if I have the option to get the filter to make it work which is practically the same price, I’d do that.

Thanks motorsports! Ill see if the stock one fits fine then. Mine is the t3 bar so it’s just directly across.

The taller one rubbed the hood when i had an L20.

"I can spend time working on the Dattos, or wasting money at the strip club. You make the call." :D


I'll put on chain mail and a dirt bike tire jock strap and drive it!!!!!

Having something is the worst reason for using it.

 

Having something that actually does something is different.

That's some good wisdom. Regardless, I'm gonna still go with the shorter one because I have an l20b and if the strut bar fits, so be it, it'll be on.

If the strut bar is already there then leave it.

That's exactly what I'm saying lol. I just don't have a filter so i wasnt sure the stock one would fit before I purchased one.

Surely you don't mean the stock Datsun air cleaner. You're speaking about the "stock" Weber air cleaner, right?

i ran a weber with filter on an l16 with a t3 strut bar and no issues 

if you have the stock hood prop you might have to cut part of the loop that holds the bar that holds the hood up mine is cut for clearence
