BMC air filters BMC was found in 1973 and until 1991 was essentially a motorcycle accessories distributor.Some of the brands traded were Yoshimura, Bridgestone and Kayaba. Since 1991 BMC started also distributing technical products for cars: some of his first customers have been Cosworth and Ferrari. In 1995 BMC started producing his own air filters due to an inquiry of F1 air filters from Ferrari Team. From race air filters starting manufacturing air filters for street cars is easy. Now BMC range includes panel sport air filters, conical air filters, direct induction kits and Carbon Airbox. Main BMC's aims are product quality and enlarging the products range in the quickest way. BMC air filters are designed and produced by Italian Engineers to be used in extreme conditions and to give you the highest performance. Since 1996 BMC air filters have equipped some of the most important Teams in F1 and American Le Mans Series like Ferrari, Prost, Sauber, Minardi, Porsche and Audi. Thus demonstrating the high quality level of the product.
Replacment Filters

BMC air filters are designed and produced to ensure a higher air flow than original paper filters. In F1, for example, BMC cotton filters minimize the loss of air flow pressure passing through the air filter; this way ensures the best conditions for full exploitation of maximum power. Therefore the benefits of replacing the original paper filter with BMC cotton air filter, produced using the same technology and materials as the F1 air filters, are evident.

CDA filtering system is composed of a cylindrical carbon air box containing a washable filtering element. Substituting the original air box with our CDA, cold air is directly channelled through an internal airflow deflector to the filter and drawn into the engine with a very small pressure drop (patented system). The CDA system also includes a black alloy ducting (60 cm length) for connecting the system to an air intake on the front of the car. The system is available in two different dimensions: we advise Type 1 for engines up to 1,600 cc; Type 2 for bigger displacements. Every type is also available in different diameters on engine side for connections. Dyno and Datron Laser tests demonstrate the great performance of CDA filtering system.
