Default Samurai Performance Air Filter

I just ordered a RF1038 air cleaner from Carbs Unlimited for my Samurai. It is very similar to the RamFlo filter that seems to be hard to find. Looks like the same basic design (oval foam element that draws air from the sides and top). They say it dramatically increases air flow and boosts performance.

Has anyone tried this product? How does it work?

I guess I will find out soon enough.

I've never associated performance with my Samurai. Mine doesn't accelerate, it gains momentum! Let us know if it seems to make a difference.

Just installed the new air cleaner and here are the results.

- Stock 1.3 engine
- Weber 32/36/carb
- Stock air cleaner prior to the change

There is most definitely a big improvement in performance once you kick in the 2nd barrel. The stumble that was there is gone and it accelerates much better than before. You do get a little intake noise, but only when the 2nd barrel is wide open. Normal driving is as quiet as before. Donít know if it will improve gas mileage since I have not put on enough miles yet.

All said and done, it cost about $44 after shipping and handling. Based on what I know now, this is the best performance gain for the money. It also looks cool too.

Yeah, I tell people mine accumulates speed, sort of the same way my savings account accumulates interest earnings...
