    If you fit a free flow air filter, will the ECU compensate for the extra air by equalizing the fuel / air mixture or will the car run lean (diesel)?

    Cheers

    I tried this Dave on my old diesel Accord and was pointless.
    It smoked more and made no difference to performance.
    Petrol cars are only worth having performance filters IMO

    Thanks @2.4 8thGen , always good to hear off people have tried it :Niceone: Not liking the more smoke business.
    I didn't suspect there would be much gain TBH, I have all the cleaner and oil left over from my bike days so thought it may be a long term solution to buying a new filter every year.

    Cheers for the reply :Thumbup:

    Also Dave you might find it hard to find one.
    When I had mine about 30 was made through pipercross for a Accord forum.

    Good choice I think as I put the stock filter back in after a few months of trying it out.
