Is it possible to clean your PIFLOW?

hello everyone, i was just wondering since my piflow is very dirty. Is there a specific product to clean it or i have no choice but to buy a new one?

thank you


and oh something else off topic, would you upgrade a prelude 5th with a turbo or a supercharge? what are the differences?

thank you again

Re: Is it possible to clean your PIFLOW?

What exactly is the "PIFLOW" am I not getting something??? Turbos get you mostly top end power and are typically more involved and more expensive to run but you see the most gains. Superchargers are relatively cheaper and involve less modding and most gains are bottom end. Depends on what you wanna do with the car and how much money you have and are willing to spend on a FI(forced induction) setup.

Re: Is it possible to clean your PIFLOW?

P FLO, P-FLOW, PIFLOW all look like the same thing from googling around. I think he is just talking about his cleaning the CAI, not the filter but the unit.

Also there are tons of threads on Turbo vs Super, we don't need another one it's been discussed time and time again.

I'm sure that by Piflow he means his short ram intake. I had one of my friend who use to call it like that..

Re: Is it possible to clean your PIFLOW?

If it's that bad I'd suggest getting a new one. Even an AutoZone brand like Specter will be better than a black filter. Most of the time you can take a compressor and blow most of the dirt out, but honestly it sounds like it's time for a new one.

Jus buy a K&N filter and slap that sukka on bc if after some time that it gets dirty then you can buy the recharge kit for about $12 at AUTOZONE!!!

Bc when I first bought the car it came with a AEM dry flow filter and it was black as hell to begin with. Stupid me...I thought it was suppose to be like that, but then after thoroughly checking it that it wasn't then I bought the K&N one and after 1 yr it was dirty as heck and jus recharged it and BAM it's good to go again!!!

What is this, "recharging?" A fluid that goes on the filter to clean it?

its a cleaning spray to make your filter brand new again :) it usually comes with a oiling can too i think its 13-20 dollars at your local autozone or pepboys. Works pretty well too.

Re: Is it possible to clean your PIFLOW?

The filters I get are the K&N knock off looking ones that sell for what the recharge kit sells for and I buy a new one every 30k miles or so. I imagine the performance difference is negligible between the two.
