Just an FYI, ITG filters (what Jim uses) are racing filters. Period. Thats all they make. Most F1 and WRC cars use them, so I guess its for good reason. I like K&N too, in fact thats what I'm running right now. I'm using it simply because there is no ITG filter of the size of the K&N that I'm running (9" long, 4.5-5" diameter, 3" outlet).
Remember, the more surface area, the more the air. Of course ITG makes up the size by filtering material, but I also **PERSONALLY** think that ITG filters will be unsafe for long term road use as opposed to K&N, since its a very loose foam core as opposed to woven fabric.
