Optic air 600

Just curious
Those that installed the Optic Air 600 filter, are you happy with it, is it performing the way you expected? Was the install as simple as it sounded? Just looking for follow-up.
Thanks, Kodiaac, East Texas

Re: Optic air 600

the opti air is great and alot cheaper than all of the others. I spent about 20 bucks to fab mine up its alittle redneck since I can't weld for crap but it works.

Re: Optic air 600

I installed an opti air on my rsr s when it had about 200 miles on it. I now have over 1000 miles on it and the throttle body is spotless. All I have done for air filter maintenance is pull the outer filter out and blow it off. The inner filter is still spotless. A friend of mine recently bought 2 rzrs, one for himself which has a ump and one for his girlfriend that had a stock airbox. I have had my car out to the dunes 3 times and there is no sign of dust ingestion. My friend has one trip on both of his. When we got back we checked his girlfriends airbox and I found about half a cup of sand in the airbox, there was a bunch of sand pouring out of the filter element and there was a lot of sand past the filter on the throttle body. By the way this was the first dune trip this rzr has ever seen and I drove mine at least 3 times as much as it got driven. We then checked the one with the ump and I found a little sand in the box, the filter was dirty (he bought this car used) and there was sand in the throttle body. I was really surprised since I have only heard good things about the ump. It could be that the filter was just to dirty so the sand just got sucked past it, but either way, my buddy decided to put opti airs on both of his cars after seeing how clean mine was and knowing how much more abuse i put mine through than his go through. Needless to say, I am very pleased with my choice to run the opti air since I paid a lot less money than the big name rzr airbox would run and so far It seems to work better as well. By the way, the filter element is way bigger on the opti air that the ump, so that alone means more flow and surface area for filtration.

Re: Optic air 600

Hands down best performer for the money if you can fab the mount and can live with an under-bed filter system that doesn't have a single piece of "billet".

Re: Optic air 600

I sure appreciate the replies, I've been kind of waiting for more feedback on this system before pulling the trigger and installing on my machine. Still looks like a winner and time to "git er done"
