The RacingLine R600 Intake System Induction Kit Replacement Air Filter is specifically designed for the RacingLine R600 intake system.
Choice of Trifoam® or Pleated Cotton air filter material.
- Pleated Cotton - Can provide long term trouble-free high performance use
- Trifoam - Can deal with much more dust and essentially provide better performance for longer in most environments
PLEATED COTTON FILTER:
The pleated cotton filter is an extremely robust long-lasting filter with excellent flow characteristics and minimal initial pressure drop.
Constructed from three layers of extremely fine-weave cotton, bound tightly top and bottom by the mesh. The material is then pleated and hand-formed into shape.
By increasing surface area, these pleats increase its filtering ability and increase its dirt holding capacity. The mesh provides the support to stop the media get sucked into the engine and also makes for a durable outer layer to protect against larger debris.
When clean, both the cotton and foam filter are almost identical in performance. The initial pressure drop figures RacingLine have recorded are just as good, and as far as power and torque are concerned the difference is near enough negligible.
Cotton filters are fit and forget due to being extremely robust and long lasting.
The Trifoam filter features 3 difference densities of foam are bonded together into large sheets, then cut into shape by hand and bonded over a plastic ‘cage’ to form the shape.
Foam air filters have a huge dust load up tolerance, which is far superior than the likes of cotton or paper. RacingLine's Trifoam is known as a ‘multilayer depth loading media’. This means when dust is fired into the material, it is trapped throughout the depth of the foam, keeping the airpaths open for longer rather than collecting it on the surface.
Another factor is that foam filters weigh a fraction of a cotton equivalent, and the ‘dome’ design increases the surface area. Rather than using an end-cap on the filter, the open end of the RacingLine Trifoam filter allows for more air to be filtered.
Many top-level Motorsport teams around the world (including World Rally, WEC and even F1, plus nearly every single performance off-road vehicle in the world) currently use this foam filter material, it speaks for itself.
Trifoam filters are delicate, Motorsport inspired material and are to be cleaned and reoiled regularly in order to maintain peak performance. Do not neglect and allow the oil to dry out
COTTON PLEATED FILTER:
- Inspection every 10,000 miles / 16,000 kms - check its clean
- Replace (or service) every 40,000 miles / 60,000kms
- Visual inspection every 6 months - check its clean and still oiled
- Clean & Reoil every 10,000 miles / 16,000 kms
