Re: Air FIlter on Carb
i too feel that the free flow air filter thing is over rated. the stock setup actually "pressurizes" the intake very slightly at speed due to it's closed nature and the snorkel to the grille. free flowing filters really only produce noticeable differences at very high speed. if you go for the k and n, be aware that consumer reports tested them a few years ago, and found that they reduce intake restriction, but let in fine dirt, just in case that is an issue with you. one other option, if you want more surface area for the air to get in, is go to the parts store, pick the stock round one off the shelf, and look for another one a little taller, but with the same diameter. it will lift the cover up of course, and you'll lose any "pressurization" of the air intake, you may have trouble with the bolt that holds the cover on, and you might hit the hood. but if that's what you're after, that's the cheapest way to go. just some goofy thoughts..
