Re: K&N air filter vs regular air filter
I put an Edelbrock air filter assembly on a small block Chevy once. It was supposed to increase HP and last forever because you could clean it. What they didn't tell you about was the noise! There was a very loud swooshing/hissing sound coming from it all the time. I eventually gave it away.
The K&N has been "proven" to increase performance a little bit, but it is a tad expensive for what you get. Most aftermarket gimmicks are just that -- gimmicks. On the other hand, if you're rolling in money, then go for it! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
