Guilietta air filter upgrade

Hi all

I had origonally made a custom intake for my 1750 but grew tired of this and decided to try something a little different.

I bought a bmc 90/140 and replaced the origonal filter in the housing itself. hope you like and let me know your thoughts

Because someone needs to experiment with these things. Take my word when i tell you there is nothing wrong with the old system. Air is far cooler on the uptake. This is more of an experiment for us kids in SA that cannot yet access the fiters.. the old filter and the new one are identical with the exception if inner diameter. one is a 80/140 and the other is a 90/140

Meaning...? More raspy? Non-turbo sound? (excited)
I replaced the exhaust on my Brera with a Brera S one. Definitely better, but not much "rasp".

I have a super sprint cat back system with a novitec power jet 3 as well as the intake.. you hear the turbo spooling up very nicely and the dump is loud.. the flutter from the waist gate is awesome

BMC sells this to Brera TBI: BMC Air Filter FB454/08
Any difference from yours? This seems cylindrical, not conical.
