    My new 3" kanaflex air system.

    I just made an air system with 3" Kanaflex and a conical filter for my RXT. I was in the 7860 rpm range with the stock air box. Now I am back to around the 8040 rpm range
    Not bad for under $70.

    I got the kanaflex from "grrubber.com" ask for "Chip", and I bought the other parts from Autozone.

    I used about 6' of hose. A conical filter, a T strap, a 3"id exhaust coupler, and a 3" rubber coupling "from Lowes". I still have to buy a small crankcase filter.

    I cut a couple inch ring off the metal coupler, and inserted it into the end of the hose by the filter to give the rubber coupler something to clamp down on. The T-clamp came with a rubber ring inside the clamp. I used that ring inside the hose connecting on the SC inlet .then placed the clamp directly in line with the ring "over" the hose.

    It's easy to find 3" hardware, and It was easy to install. I also just didn't see much benefit.
    I don't plan on doing a lot of mods. if I did, than maybe I would have went 4"

    From everything I've read you don't want a filter with a fiber\paper element, but i bet that 3 inch was a hell of a lot easier to route than my 4 inch.

    What do you then want ? Would be great to know couse I have a similar filter.
    By the way nice setup. I also just have a 3 inch setup and don´t think there is a big diffrent from 3 to 4 inch but for sure
    some of you have tested both 3 and 4 inch ?

    I think it's a cloth filter. It was super easy to route it.
