what are the benefits of the twintake then? Ive read some bits about them and am wondering what difference the two filters make? cheers
The point is all about where the major restrictions in the induction system are.
If your air filter is a major source of airflow restriction,then making it bigger,either by using a single larger filter,or in the case of the Twintake,using 2 filters,may reduce that.
This however doesnt get around the problem further along the piping in terms of the MAF housing,which,at 2.75",remains the narrowest area of the system.
The only way to improve flow here is to use the smoothest,and widest radius piping possible,as in the Revo or AMD,hence the improvements seen on both.
As soon as the airflow becomes turbulent,resistance increases dramatically,for very little increase in flow,and minimising turbulent flow is the aim with both these systems.
The Twintake is basically saying that the previously used single filter,was restricting flow.
