Tegiwa Airbox and Filters

The Tegiwa airbox comes with the K+N panel filter, however there are several threads on the forum suggesting a genuine Honda air filter is the best:

http://www.civinfo.com/forum/engines...pros-cons.html

http://www.civinfo.com/forum/type-r/...-confused.html

http://www.civinfo.com/forum/type-r/...er-market.html

http://www.civinfo.com/forum/type-r/...r-results.html

Would there be any benefit in using a genuine Honda filter in the Tegiwa airbox rather than the K+N? Or has the Tegiwa airbox been designed with the K+N in mind?

Have had bad experiences of oiled panel filters and MAF sensors clogging up in the past.

Nothing wrong with a reusable k&n filter. I just had one fitted and feel the car drives better. I know there are prob no evidence of that as standard but personal choice.

Either are fine mate.

If you're overly bothered about tiny particles getting in the engine I'd run OEM.
If you prefer to have a reusable filter stick with K&N, though you need to buy a refresh kit.

Main thing with K&N is to not over oil it as it can muck up the MAF.

Performance-wise you won't feel the difference so go with your personal preference.

Would the k&n not be better or at least offer similiar engine protection as the oem?

I've ran them fine but I do change my oil regularly so never had an issue. The K&N ones apparently let extremely tiny particles through and the foam ones even moreso. Nothing I'm concerned about myself unless I had a super low mileage I planned to keep for years and years.

I used K&Ns for over 10 years on several cars and never had a problem.


I suspect any oil on MAF issues have come from folks cleaning the filter and over oiling it.
