R2C Air Filter Element - Good Enough....Again!
02/09/17 at 21:29:07
 
If you have been watching Ebay over the last few days it has exploded with a reproduction air filter element made by R2C Performance. áMultiple vendors are carrying it ranging in price from $89 - $125.
 
They looked good in the ads so I ordered one to take a look at. áWell, all I can say is we have another failed attempt at reproducing a quality piece. áAt least all of the components seem to be available but the attention to detail and quality has a long way to go. áThis is another driver quality piece.
 
The material now being used for the face web is in the ball park. áThere is a quality problem holding it in place though. áThere should be 3 holes visible with a 1/2 hole on the top and bottom. áSee picture below.

They have the lap in the face screen figured out. áIgnore the terrible misaligned and just look at the lap joint.

But hey, the internal screen is finally correct. Smiley  I hope the folks at R2C read this.  With a small amount of attention to quality and detail this would have been a really nice reproduction.  Instead we have "good enough" again. Angry Angry

According to Dante...these R2C filters on ebay are Blems.... undecided undecided  
 
I guess you would have to see a good #1 piece to actually compare.
