    Amazing... Filters

    You guys are not going to believe this.... Just left Top Speed and they had a R8 on the dyno. They did a pull and then put the BMC filters on there while it was on the dyno and it gained 21 hp. I am not even kidding. I will get the dynos. No one could believe it. I freaking knew it, the filters do help

    Hey Dustin do you know if the R8 on the dyno had a tune?

    Nope just exhaust. Put down 434 with the exhaust and then 455 with the filters. It was just the craziest thing ever. No one could believe it.

    Re: Amazing... Filters

    So with the APR 93 tune (+59) + Exhaust (+10) + BMC filters (+20) we must be around 610 - 615 at the crank?

    I would say maybe 490 to 510 at the wheels. So yeah right around 600. I will let you know for sure. Going to put mine on the dyno one day soon before the turbo project begins in the next few weeks. I am so excited.

    If the BMC dyno numbers are correct it would appear that the BMC filters are worth the investment. Has the tt project been finalized?

    Wow..that is amazing.

    That changes everything I have been told in regards to getting any substantive increase with a filter change.

    Can anyone advise the best place to buy BMC filters.

    Bought mine direct from BMC which was by far the lowest delivered price (650EUR) I could find at the time. Took exactly two weeks from order to receive. V10 Part # CRF605/08 - http://www.bmcairfilters.com/index.aspx

    I'm not sure if they sell direct to Australia. You can contact Stefano Dore, BMC Marketing, at marketing@bmcairfilters.com He is a great guy and was very helpful.
