Strengths: element is replaceable
few cheep HP for ur car
Weaknesses: dirt may come in at the screw opening at the top of the casing. the prob is easily fixed with a small washer inbetween the screen and the filter element. =)
Summary: works great, lets ur car breath better on the intake side. the filtering element is replaceable so you never loose air flow. some fitlers that r washable like AEM, K&N filters loose air flow due to dirt that is stuck far into the filter. if u want good flow all the time go for the HKS.
