To clean and freshen a Spectre Performance it’s advised to use a Spectre AccuCharge Air Filter Service Kit. The AccuCharge system features markings on the bottle for precise measuring and an easy-to-use squirt top for effortless and accurate application. The AccuCharge system comes complete with a 12 oz. pump spray bottle of cleaner and an 8 oz. bottle of specially-formulated filter oil with absolutely no petroleum products or animal fats.
When you think of good engine breathing you’re normally considering intake systems. However, efficient crankcase breathing is an equally important function of any engine. If an engine’s breathing system is blocked or restricted, the crankcase pressure will find a way to equalize in any number of ways including out through weak seals, the oil dip stick tube, or past the oil rings. While all that’s going on, impurities like water vapor and acids created through the combustion process will build up and cause sludge, which in turn increases engine wear.
For most engines the standard emissions control system will manage this chore, but in aggressive street motors as well as those built for motorsports applications, increased crankcase ventilation must be added. These highly-tuned engines with higher compression ratios, higher oil pressures and higher maximum revs demand improved crankcase ventilation, not to mention that aggressive motorsports cam grinds reduce the amount of vacuum available to relieve the pressure inside the crankcase.
To help vent the crankcase without causing any of the problems mentioned, Spectre Performance offers a line of breather filters to clamp directly to metal or plastic tubing, making them ideal for filtering the air going in and out of not just your engine’s crankcase, but also for use on transmission and differential vents as well. Spectre Performance breathers come with air filter media, or screen mesh and are made with a pre-dyed synthetic media for lasting color.
Note: Breather/Crankcase Vent filters are legal in California only for racing vehicles which may never be used, registered, or licensed for use upon a highway. See spectreperformance.com for CARB status on each part for a specific vehicle.
