Oiled filters have a sweet spot, too much oil and they restrict flow and may contaminate
MAP or MAP sensors etc. Too little and it will not filter properly.

Received a free K&N Filter for my car, sold it on here.


If you want a filter that does its job then get a decent quality paper filter and check it
every 6 months or so depending on mileage. If its dirty then swap it no matter how
many miles you have done.


Think the ST airbox will have a cold feed and twin inlets to flow more than the lower
spec cars. Its not restrictive.



If you want a filter that makes more noise and not bothered about its efficiency then go
aftermarket panel or cone.

Only the 220 has a twin inlet air box. The TDCI doesn’t need one as it has a smaller lower revving engine.
Did the facelift's to date come fitted with a twin inlet, i know the first gen st220 had them, haven't you gotta watch for deep/standing water as i believe one inlet has a very low intake height..am i right or wrong..cheer's.

Five speed cars had a second feed hose that ran from the base of the car to the bottom of the air box, just as you say.

 

Six speed cars don’t have the room for the second feed pipe due to the different gearbox, so just have the hole in the bottom if the air box.
