FWIW, one of my wealthier customers some years ago tried every different air
cleaner available (four different types, including the expensive K & Ns) on
his otherwise stock MGB. He carefully measured performance (time to
accelerate between two fixed landmarks) and fuel economy with each set,
comparing the data to the numbers as delivered with the original, factory
air cleaners. He was surprised by the results of the test - and gave me back
all the aftermarket ones. 'Twould appear the factory engineers were smarter
than some people nowadays give them credit for being.........
