Better air flow means more power. Cleaner air means increased engine longevity. Now you can have the best of both worlds with the WORKS High-flow Drop-in Air Filter for the Evolution X. This direct drop-in replacement for the factory filter retains stock drivability and can flow more than twice as much as the stock filter. Constructed of multilayer, uniform cotton fabric with stainless steel mesh reinforcement, this unit will filter particles down to several microns with very high saturation capacity. The reusable element is easily cleaned, re-oiled and back in your factory airbox in a matter of minutes with the WORKS Service Kit. Pays for itself after only 3 to 4 scheduled maintenance periods and lasts a lifetime! Includes one carefully pre-oiled filter and simple installation instructions.

High quality product. Makes slightly more choo choo noises over the stock filter. Slight bump in power. A must have for a first mod. No tune needed.
Good filter for the money compared to others like AEM and K&N. Was able to hear BOV and turbo kick better after installation - minimal HP/TQ - sound was notably better - improved MPG by 1-2. Installation was simple swap. Nuff said - buy this and then install CAI later.
If you can wait the ridiculous time it takes to ship this product (well over a month & on back order, not explained when purchasing) then I would say it's well worth it. My mpg increased on my 2014 lancer ralliart. You can also hear the turbo a little better too. As for a power increase it seems to have better acceleration. Torque may have increased a little bit. It claims to add the same amount of power as a cold air intake but you do less work, just drop the filter in!
Replacing the OEM air filter with this WORKS air filter was the very first mod I performed to my X, and I was not disappointed. While the difference was not night and day, it did provide a boost in power as advertised, and improved induction noise a bit too. Dyno confirmed to be the best flowing drop-in panel filter, and that's good enough for me. Most definitely a better option than opting for any cheap short ram / "cold air intake."
Worth noting, this filter is reusable. I do a quick clean every oil change, but WORKS states that every 12k miles would suffice in order to extract the expected boost in power that they advertise.
Anybody worrying about fitment, the term "drop-in" absolutely applies.
