K&N Pannel filters are they worth the $140.00 ?
A mechanic friend of mine say's they're shit and make no difference
to performance or fuel eco.
Obviously there are a few people here who use them, give me some feed back
on how you found them..is there a performance gain to be had (I think there should be) or should i just stick to the good old $10.00 paper filter.
i think my exhaust had a slightly deeper note to it after i grabbed one of these, although my old panel filter was rooted so whether that was just due to any new filter or not im not sure. your probably better getting a $10 one and saving the $130 for a new induction system or towards another mod if your looking for performance
Yeah...I bought one a couple of months back (retangle type not pod) and noticed a slight increase in horsepower especially when at about 1000-2000rpm. I do have extractors and exhaust thought. And about efficiency...welll I was not getting as many k's to the tank...about 80 k's less, so I put my Ryco paper one back in and am getting the usual k's. It's all about personal choice...if you are rich and would like a little more power, put one in, but otherwise, I could put it on the 'waste of money list'.
repco sellin them for $100 wit a free DVD worth $30, it say its worth it mate, after changin a very cloged and stuffed up paper filter, it runs an goes alot more qwicker now that ive noticed, no fuel savin thow, epsally wit the prices atm
