*I see you did compare K&N to K&N and this is what your results are based on. Do you predict a much different result with another panel filter? K&N isnt much liked in the subie community because of the oiled filter and MAF
I think that a paper filter would flow close to the the same. There have been other tests (not by me) that show that the difference between a K&N style and and oem drop-in make hardly any difference. What I don't like about the oiled filters is the increased amount of silica that is found in an oil analysis.

The panel filter flows more because it has more overall surface area
