    Full intake vs Drop in filter

    Do you guys think its worth it to pay the 300 dollars for the K and N FIPK or just go with the K and N filter. My paper filter is due for a change. Also where can i get these high flow factory style air cleaner boxes i hear about? When i put the k and n in my 1994 camaro v6 it was noticably better, but would i notice even more with a full intake in my 01 Trans Am? Thanks guys.

    just get a k&n filter (or paper) and a lid. You might gain an hp or two with the fipk, but its not worth the $300 in my opinion. Check the for sale section or our sponsors New lid is about $90, used you can get for $50 -75.

    I can't tell you an exact number as some cars will dyno different than others, but i can tell you that you will definately not see enough gains over a lid to justify the extra $$. Don't forget to do the free ram air mod. installuniversity.com - install documents
