Cone *air* filter pre-filter wrap; Useful?

What conditions should one be used?
What conditions should one not be needed?
Is the only benefit when wet / muddy conditions are expected?

Will a pre-filter wrap considerably restrict airflow?
Will it significantly increase particle filtration?

Have you ever considered one?
Do you use one now?

Primary systems would include k & n or airaid FIPK / airchargers.

I would say DUSTY areas... desert areas, places where there is fine particle sand.....thats when you should use a prefilter. Or any time you feel SINCE your butt dynpo won;t feel any difference regardless

Does it give better protection/ air filtration, yes. Does it restrict air flow, YES..... would your butt notice a difference HELL NO!.... your mind might make you think you could feel a 10hp increase/decrease...but the reality is... you can't. any increase in filtration increase air restriction..unless you got a big ole filter....

Mud... it sure wouldn't hurt you to have it... but if mud is getting to the filter, you might consider moving the filter or making a splash guard. if mud gets to it, Water gets to it easier... water can be a bigger issue than mud IMO

I use a pre filter on my K&N (XK) every time I'm going to the trails, just to protect the filter a bit more and for extra pice of mind, they are cheap, and easy to install and remove.

Man that is bad! My block was still good somehow so i guess i was lucky! I live right in the middle of downtown Dallas. I'm trying not to pester the shop too much, but i'm really hoping to have it done by the end of this month. They've had it since August 7th, so i'm impatiently waiting! They plan to dyno it at AutoScope in Dallas as they have an AWD dyno. I hope it'll be done by mid October!
