    Totally random but im stuck in a hotel bord so.

    Im going to order a filter from gsf later and wondered, could i use red food dye and dye the paper element red? Obviously id leave it to fully dry out before use! Would it take and could it cause any issues? Cant see it doing any harm but wanted to ask lol.

    Hahaha! This thread should be called "Ghetto mods of the Max Power days" haha!

    Seriously though... I can't see why it would damage it tbh. I'd be more inclined to use clothing dye though, because it is cotton you're dying after all. Just make sure it's totally dry before fitting it as you would when washing a filter :)

    Lmfao, i knew when i saw that youd posted a link up it was going to be something stupid, who the **** would pay for that though
    that is a valid point though about a clean filter every year.

    Havent you seen the thread ben started westy? And also in jardos thread? On jardos a3 he gained 4g/s so on high ouput cars its possible the gains will be multiplied.

    Color it in with felt tip!

    Nah mate, we're the cool ones not blowing cash every time we need to do a service. Instead we just do a bit of cleaning ;) It'll be good once some real testing is done on the dyno. My money says there's nowt difference between a new Jetex vs. a new S2000 paper filter.

    I have been reading that thread but I thought the S2k filter was just a cheaper alternative to the jetex. Are you now telling me that people are seeing an improvement over the jetex?

    Im sayig jardo has claimed an improvement over the jetex, they are also going to by testing the filter on phil millers ko4 tqs so that will be interesting too as i believe hes trying to reach the 300bhp mark like yourself.
