BMC F1 Filter Vs. True Flow Premium Filter?

Hey guys, I've been thinking about getting either a BMC F1 air filter or True Flow filter for awhile now. I've read differing opinions through the archives. Has anyone tried both the BMC and the True Flow filters and decided which one of the two they prefer? Or anyone with any dyno's with the BMC or True Flow?

Thanks in advance!

Anyone? I'm starting to lean towards picking up a BMC F1 filter, primarily due to lack of hits on the True Flow in the archives.

Would anyone with first hand experience with the BMC please chime in on your feedback/opinions about it?

Thanks!

1 word... expensive. Might as well go all out and get an evo intake. Its probably just worth it to spend the extra cash.

I wouldn't risk any of these on this car due to the likelihood of MAF issues.

I replaced my K&N with a Truflow filter... Definatly less power and intake noise with the truflow but i bought it cause i was worried my maf would kill faster with the K&N filter.
