Cobb stg 2 + fmic..drop in filter

I got catless dps and vrsf fmic installed ....question is on the intake. Would a drop in filter suffice running stg +fmic? Keep in mind I don't track the car I just like having that extra power for a little fun.Plus I'm in deep south TX so it's very humid and hot.I have researched but but haven't found a direct answer for a car that's a dd and not used on the track..

Any reason to choose amazon?

We have the same filter and our price should be competitive.(If it isn't let me know as we price match any item in our store). It's also in stock.

For DD, it should be fine.
However, I feel like that drop in filter reaches its limit faster at higher rpm compare to dci with my tune (boosting around 18 psi).

As for drop in, I like oil-less filter. It's easier performance maintenance on it.
I used aFe oil-less drop in filter prior to installing bms dci.

Yeah I peak at 18-19 but tapers off...I'll probably get the drop in for now. I'm not too worried about gains the car is running like beast already. It's more on putting less strain on the turbos and engine.

Jeff
I love you guys and recommend strongly.
It wasn't price.
I've wanted one for along time. Only remembered when commuting. Ordered from my phone on the train.
