Do you want to know the advantages/disadvantages to a cone filter vs the stock panel air filter? There is no real advantage. Cone filters are only at a disadvantage when they are installed in the engine bay with no baffling/covered to bring in cool outside air. The way they are installed in the engine bay, they are bringing in hot air, which is not very efficient.

but still don't know what you mean by "limit"?? Limit what? Performance?

Ok what i mean is does a cone filter made your car revs limit(redline).

A cone filter does not limit the revs. The ECU does. The ECU limits the RPMs to around 4000 in neutral, at red line in gear and limits the top speed of the vehicle. --- A cone filter is larger than the air intake pipe. If anything to do with air intake limited the RPM's, it would be the smallest opening which is the throttle body.
