its been long enough to give report now K&Nexstrem

well bought 2 months ago I felt like blowing some money when I spotted k&N exstrme sitn on the parts self at the local store. so I bought it and tossed it on the truck, shortly after I went on short road tripp that went through some winding canyons and high speed and slow speed stuff. 14 ceoming back from the tripp, and 18 going down. not bad. ohhhhhhh I also tossed a msd coil on at the same time, maybe its helping to.
I also got the blue K&N prefilter cause couldnt stand that have the k&N out in the elements the way it was

even around town Ive been getn right at that 18 mark, but thats going real easy on just so i can see how good a mileage I can get.

anyways I thihnk the exstrme K&N was a worth while mod, I wasnt impressed with just the k&N in the chevy airbox but this setup seems to be better.

the K&N also gave my exhaust a throatier sound I think, and the truck feels like its more responsive.

just thought Id let you know.

ohhhh this is on a fairly fresh tbi 350, has mild cam and free flowing exhaust.

Re: its been long enough to give report now K&Nexs

ummmm

well not realy I didnt get a kit.

i already removed all vacum and smog lines prior to tosn the exstrem on. didnt think about that. you might run into trouble. i dont have any smog whatsoever on the motor.


check out chevys 383 TBI motor. spendy but maybe worth it.
410fpt at 3300 rpm, not bad eh

Is that the X-stream lid or the whole setup that you're running?
