Question K&N Air Filters

Hey Ppl

I have a EA 5 speed manual CFI.

Thinking about putting k&N Air filter on. I went to autobarn they gave me a price of $138.50 Product number is 2855

Will i notice increase in performance.. how many kws would it give my car?

Where would i notice it? Mid range, top end or take off?

Also does anyone know where to get one for better price than what i've been given?

Thanks

Hmmm... I dont think you would notice much difference with the CFI. You might gain 1 or 2 rwkw if you are lucky. In my opinion, not worth the money when there are other Mods u can do (you know what im talking about ) for not much more cash :)

Re: K&N Air Filters

ever thought of doing a MPFI conversion
i personally dont think you will be able to notice much of a difference if any unless there is something wrong with your current filter. but the K&N ones last a lot longer anyways so theres no harm in trying

Re: K&N Air Filters

to get full value out of a high flow air filter (k&n) you have to have extractors. a 2.5'' sports exhaust wouldnt hurt the performance either.
