I am surprised you didn't go for the K&N air filter. Are they too much of a bother? They add about 5 HP, I think.
FYI, the foam pre-filter is designed for cold climates and protects the paper pleats from getting clogged by the snow and ice that might get through the air intake. For very dusty areas it might protect against large particles that might otherwise get through, but how many people will clean the foam liner?
In other words, the foam strip is not needed in warmer climates like Florida.
