    What's the best source for a reasonably -priced air filter element for a QV? Do Fram or Purlator make them ? if so, what are the #'s?

    Thanks in advance, Tifosi.

    I ordered a new OEM UFI Ferrari filter from T Rutlands for about $30. Stick with OEM.

    P.S. You may also want to call Algar (www.algarferrari.com) They seem to be very cheap as to parts.

    Doc,

    You can use an STP SA3901 (Deutsch A731) air filter and i found it at Pep Boys for $5! Fits GREAT and seems to work well too. Always glad to help.

    Enjoy the Drive,

    Thanks, Steve. By the way, I just bought the Purlator equivalent of those 2 sizes and it didn't fit properly. I'll return it tomorrow and try the exact one you've rec'd.

    Doc,

    On the STP, the legth is a TAD too long, but a mean JUST a tad so it squeezes in. Width is a touch short, but JUST a touch and still seals fine. Works fine in the 1985 308GTS Qv that is here.

    Enjoy the Drive,

    Why not fit a KN air filter.Once done you never need to buy another just clean & oil it.

    Because i am not convinced that the K&N filters enough junk over time. Would rather replace my air filter every 3k miles with oil change. At $5 an STP filter it is cheap enough and good insurance.

    Besides, the Euro version 308 is not desperate to make "added HP" using the K&N as the much heavier and slower US version might be. Guess there are some things where it is better to err on the side of caution. $5... or $50 aint gonna break the bank here.

    Enjoy the Drive,
