air filter

Hi all

dont know what ive done but having changed my air filter yesterday in my 2.5 v6 with some difficulty due to those fixing screws seizing up , i seem to hav lost that instant pickup in midrange and it doesnt sound so smooth ( a bit lumpy on idle mainly ).

the reason i changed it caus it hasnt been done since i bought the car and i thought id change it for peace of mind .

the old filter didnt seem that dirty and im sure it was for a 3.0 gtv ( had round mesh holes on the outside as well as on the inside of the filter .=)

the new filter i bought was a fram aftermarket one from a respected indie specialist who said they were good .

could it be the new filter is a crap make or should i put the old filter back in although its not the right one for the 2.5 v6 engine

there again it must do no harm caus i had the performance there when it was in .

should i have bought a gen alfa filter or are they all much the same .

sorry for goin on a bit but all replies would be welcome .
