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!|
