MG Midget and Sprite Technical - K&N Fancy filter - any good ?

I'm sure somebody on here will have or had one of these,

Are they any good, I'm planning on a slightly modded 1275 engine - just a bit more power and better breathing than standard already got the Peter Burgess head, staying twin carb and a slightly lumpy cam and maybe roller rockers, just wondering if the ridiculous price is justifiable.

K&N filters are the ones to have, but I wouldn't pay that much. I have a single HIF44 with a K&N cone filter, which as I recall was about 30. Make sure you have at least a stub stack inside to ensure smooth entry of air.

They do work well and have a built-in radius, which helps.

That does seem a bit pricey.

Secondhand ones do come up for sale, sometimes.

Welsh MG have a used one for 75

You can wash the filter and re-oil it.

Got one on my 1500, looks good, fits well and breathes really nicely. Good old carb roar!
