Pipercross launches Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG Performance Filter
Filtration expert Pipercross has released a high performance foam panel filter to fit the A45 AMG Mercedes Benz. These new, OEM-sized filters for the latest W176 models fit as a direct swap, offering huge improvements in flow, balanced with significantly longer life and greater engine protection.
Many AMG owners are looking to safely tune their cars, within the comforting confines of the Mercedes warranty. These filters are the perfect way to do that, improving the breathing of their engine thanks to this new, direct replacement panel filter, while retaining the factory airbox. The lightly-oiled triple layer foam used is precisely the same as that which Pipercross uses in its BTCC and WRC programmes, so it’s more than a match for the AMG’s air-flow needs.
The vastly improved surface area, carefully selected multi-layered foam within these filters offers 30% more air-flow than even the most efficient of OEM style filters. As well as getting more air in to start with, the ingenious multi-layer design also filters down to a far finer rate, protecting the AMG’s engine against damage. With a comprehensive lifetime warranty it makes huge financial sense, especially when you factor that each kit is lovingly hand-crafted in Pipercross’ UK factory.
Although designed with performance and longevity in mind, a useful by-product of this optimised induction is that, in most cases, fuel efficiency is often marginally improved too, which is no bad thing, given the AMG’s relatively heavy thirst for the juice!
The Pipercross panel filter provides a very subtle improvement in induction noise combined with a genuine airflow improvement, making it an essential enhancement for anyone running either the A45 . Whichever Mercedes car you run, with over 3,000 applications covered in the range, there’s a good chance they have one to enhance and protect your engine.
