What, the fact they are British isn't enough for you ;>)
Both are readily available in the U.S.A. http://itgfilters.net/ and http://www.pipercrossusa.com/
I was always led to believe that foam filters have a better airflow (lower delta P) at higher cleaning efficiency/higher particulate load up. Look at most vintage racecars running ITB's or carbs and the largest proportion will have one of these style foam filters. I run a Pipercross filter on the Formula Atlantic using twin DCOE Webers. When compared to the K&N sandwiched between two plates the open filter area is significantly larger and you don't have a blank sat right over your carb/throttle body inlet.
Probably not the scientific justification you were looking for I know.

And here I was sitting and wondering why I'd never heard of either company.
I should have known, Julian!
Do you have personal experience with how/why they are better than K&N, for example?

I like the IPSCO offering, but when I do mine I'm going to go with an ITG or Pipercross foam filter system.
