    Re: K&N Filters installed

    Just installed these for my first mod to the car. There's more of a change than I thought.

    Re: K&N Filters installed

    This car had 17000 miles on the stock filters...

    There was a subtle but immediate difference after changing to the K&N Filters. Sound of the exhaust is better too...

    Re: K&N Filters installed

    Just out of curiosity, what do the stock filters cost?

    Re: K&N Filters installed

    Just installed the KN Filters... easy install... stock filters were nasty and dirty... started the car and it seems like rpms reved up faster... maybe was just my imagination... yet to take her out for a spin as its raining today.

    What filters are they? Not K&N by the looks of them. They dont have the end caps.
    Looks a good design.
