YRV 1.3 high-flow air filter

Forum: 

My search for a cotton high-flow washable air filter for my wife's normally aspirated YRV continues. Not only will such a filter save money in the long run, but it will enable my wife to imagine a power or economy increase.

I rang Blitz UK (Fensport) to enquire about their 59554 LM Power panel filter and to ask why it offered no cleaning/re-oiling kit for the filter.

At c.£41 for the filter I was horrified to learn that there is no cleaning kit for this filter because it is disposable, not washable, and has a nylon mesh.

Thus no sale. Jetex may be my last chance so I will have to measure the standard filter and see what Jetex throws up.

Don't like the new shape much.

I asked for the Dimentions of the YRV filter ages ago after having problems with the Sirion Different Filters.

No one sent me the dimentions!!

I was going to ask Jetex.

Let us know how you go on Tony.

YRV normally aspirated filter size is 320 x 130mm Bob. Unfortunately it has highly radiused corners which means a standard rectangular panel filter won't fit.

I did check with Jetex and the nearest size they have is 325 x 135mm for the Fiat Punto 80 Sporting, so slightly too big anyway.

The standard filter seems to be made of compressed felt, which probably gives reasonably high flow compared to a normal paper filter

I guess I'll have to give up on this one.

At least we know they do one for the Sirion Rally 2 & 4.
