S1 Air FiltersThere are lots of claims for the various after market air filters but the simple truth is that an air filter alone will not give you much more noticable power on the Elise. At best it will give you an improved engine noise through induction roar, at worst it will make your engine run roughly. Some owners have noticed dramatic increases in fuel consumption. The standard air filter and ducting is designed to suck cool air through the air vent on the side of the car. Air filters that sit within the engine bay (and have no ducting from the outside vent) are liable to pull in air heated by the engine and this will actually decrease the engine performance. As part of a complete package the air filter is worth upgrading but, in isolation it's not worth the effort.
