What's everyone using for air filter and intake piping on their water cooled motors?

This is what I have so far. It's a universal air filter from autozone and 3 in pvc pipe. The filter will be tucked up pretty high in the frame. I'm hoping it will work good.

if you look up intercooler piping on ebay, you can find just about everything you need.

K&N filters are JUNK (period). You will ruin a good off road motor using K&N filters. Want your stuff to last this is the filter to use. http://www.enginaire.com/heavy-duty-air-cleaners/

X2 with mike. K&n filters are designed to to flow more. How do they flow better?? Larger spaced filter media. More flow=more trash. We ran them on our super late models but cleaned and oil them every week and had a spare to swap out between races.

Cyclone style double filter from a ford tractor. Similar to what comes in any industrial mower but bigger. Available in many sizes and easy to find and get filters for. Nothing gets through these filters.

I have been running the K&N with this sock http://www.knfilters.com/search/wrap.aspx for at least 3 years trouble free. May not be the best but then again I run a cheap water cooled engine.

Ding ding ding, we have a winner. We ran them on the sprint cars only because there wasn't much of a selection for the Kinsler or Hillborn mechanical fuel injections. Ours too were cleaned and oiled every week which didn't really matter for us, we had to rebuilt our engines every 5 race nights, if you didn't, you were driving a 750hp hand grenade by race 7 or 8.

I put a new small block chevy in my Jeep rock crawler last year. I also have used K&N filters for a long time, always using a prefilter over the oiled filter. My local speed shop owner suggested trying an R2C dry filter.

IMO...Absolutely the best offroad filter I have ever used! No dirt passes thru and just blow it out, and your back in business.

Like Huey I'm running a cheaper water cooled motor. I just picked this buggy up a few weeks ago and am trying to get some of the small things taken care of before moving on to the bigger things. I'm only planning on running this filter for a short time that's why I asked what everyone was using. Thanks for all the info. Oh and I'm running a 3.2 Honda v6.
