• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $49.99/year or $6.99/month to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction). Annual membership also comes with two BiplaneForum.com decals.

Has anyone seen a good gesign for an air filter system for an S1S with standard nose bowl, 4-1 exhaust (skydynamics) and horizontal fuel injection servo on an IO360 A1A

I just pullled my engine apart (165TT)and it had severe silica damage to the crank and pistons. The oil sample after 6 hours showed high silica. I know most acro guys stay with the ram-air no filter. I am doing anoverhaul and do not want this to occur again.

My research shows I ned at least 450cfm passing through the filter.
