Have a 99 2.5 Cougar.

Am thinking of taking out the stock airbox and replacing it with this Ractive cone filter with a heat shield. See pic below.

Here is info from Ractive web site...

SF007GR - Ractive’s patented design, the SF007GR is an air filter that has a special conical feature that is designed to increase airflow into the intake and lower the air intake temperature. This kit comes complete with a 3 inch air filter and all the hardware needed.


Few questions, will their be enough airflow into the filter. Also what positives or negatives are there about this filter.

I plan on either routing a cold air inlet to the mouth of the filter or mounting the filter inside the fender with a tube supplying cool air up to the intake.

Will this Filter give same airflow and or performance as Injen or AEM filters ?

Yeah it'll just be as any other aftermarket intake, sorry I don't know too much about the filter itself though.

I used that intake filter for a while before I sold it to someone locally but this is my observation from it...

Pros
- Does help cut down on some heat soak
- The filter stays clean longer due to the cover
-Looks cleaner Aesthetically IMO

Cons

-Less filter area
-much quieter than an open filter element

So Iran is distributing that crap to ricers now? Oh great, thats just what we needed. "Destroying Israel, one heat shield at a time."

Plastic would be better in theory ... less heat soak across the material.

Then again maybe asbestos would work ....
