Filter????  You need a filter on an engine?  I thought it was cool sounding without one?  Yes, I have a filter.  If I have it set where it won't idle at 3000, then as soon as I pull the clutch in, it goes right done to 0 pretty quick.  If I pop it to start the engine again, it runs while in gear, but then dies immediately when the clutch is pulled again.I guess it may be my imagination, but it doesn't seem to rev as quick in neutral as it used to either.
