Some people have reported the K&N air filter to provide a little more umph...

Others have noticed no increase in power.

Our sponsors sell the K&N if you plan on purchasing it. Also, search the board for the topics related to the filters so you can read some other people's feedback.


Please keep us informed of the progress with this situation.

Thanks and good luck!

We are set to start testing the week of the 28th. It will proabably take about a week. I will need to find somebody with a V8 to test and prototype. Again, we may need the car for up to 1 week. If you are interested, email me, [email protected]. BTW, we are in Pomona, CA.
We will try to make a 2 piece intake system that is a cold air intake unit that can be made a short ram just by removing the bottom. I will also make sure to have a dyno of the results. Cross your fingers, I know the V6 is sluggish up hills.

I installed both K&N filters yesterday. Left side, no problem. Right side..... :chainsaw: Ended up taking a few plastic covers off to finally have enough room to get the tab out of the slot on the bttom of the filter cover. Two lines run over top of the filter cover were not a big deal. Im glad I wont have to mess with it again for 50,000 miles. Havent really taken it out to see the performance difference. Ill keep you posted. :smile:
