hi flow air cleaners

Looking to put some type of high-flow air filter in my '89 sidekick 1.6L. Calmini and K&N both have OEM air-box replacement filters for about $44. Is there any other similar brand that costs less? Or perhaps a reasonably priced new air filter assembly (that would replace the box assembly altogether)? Looking for ideas....Thanks.

It seems to be the group here almost all anyway feel like the K & N is the best filter for the job. Check some of the previous posts by
using the search. The box you refer to serves several purposes other than just being a holder for the air cleaner. I just installed a
K&N on my 98 F150 and can tell a big difference. The price is high but it will last a long time with the proper care.

The K&N filter is dominate but it has its drawbacks,the micron size of the K&N is larger than others allowing more air to flow,even when properly oiled if you live or drive in alot of dusty conditions you'll draw in more finer particles.Of course I know of no one thats lost an engine due to this and I'm pretty sure the article I was reading was probably sponsored by one of its competitors,I run K&N in 1 of mine and like it.

Drive it like you stole it!!!

Re: hi flow air cleaners

I have the KN filter, the instructions tell you to over oil the filter if you are driving in VERY dusty conditions. Zuki South makes the kit, and will
ship it to you. It's well worth it.
This URL will show you a photo of one instaled on my Zuki.
