    S2000 Air Filter

    Hi guys I have decided on fitting an OEM Honda s2000 cone filter to my AGU engine.

    Does this filter require a reducer or will it jubilee clip straight onto the MAF? Standads air box is easy to remove I assume?

    Thanks

    This is covered approximately every 20 minutes. At which point, Jardo piles in claiming it's the best thing since sliced bread. There's no real evidence apart from logs which vary at the best of times and the old "it feels good" placebo. It is cheap though, and paper is meant to give better filtration.

    LOL Sam. You make me piss.

    Do you know who put me onto the S2000 air filter originally? Bill. If it is good enough for Bill it is good enough for me. Even if it doesn't add any performance over a Jetex it does the same job potentially better for less than a third of the cost, so of cause it is the best thing since sliced bread.

    And as I say all the time, if my S2000 air filter wasn't up to the job I wouldn't have the most powerful K03s on the forum. As you know with a K03 it is ALL about flow.

    I have seen a couple of S2000 turbo setups, ranging from 300 to 500bhp all using this standard filter and airbox.

    You just don't like it because it isn't a brand name to out on your list of perfect mods

    Can you point me in the right direction on where to purchase a reducer please buddy? Is it just a standard 70-80mm silicone reducer I need? Sam

    That's great thanks buddy Is airbox simple to remove? Is it the AGU or AUM that has the little sensor on the air box that you have to fix somewhere else?

    Agu has an ignition amplifier in the airbox, just zip tie it somewhere out the way but as far away from the engine/turbo as you can.

    That's because AUM's don't have the ignition amplifier in the airbox, it is built into the coil packs. Four wires for the coil packs, not three like an AGU.

    I'm guessing all you guys with a3's and s2k filters had to use the 80-70mm reducers?

    Yup, in one way or another. But the entrance to the filter is actually bigger than 80mm, more like 82/84mm. An 80mm will stretch, but it's a push.

    No oil in mine; I got my filter from GSF.

    You shouldn't need to oil a paper filter? Hmmm.
