    You could go that route or go with a Volant. Either way, you should be fine. Just keep a can of MAF cleaner whenever you service your intake.

    K&N has always been good for me. You'll hear about problems with them from others, but that can go with any product you use. All in all, I prefer K&N.

    What i dont like about the K&N is that it lets in hot engine air.

    There are threads here posted that contain actual facts and data about K&N air filters. They are junk period.. Get a paper filter or one from our sponsers for best results. A cheap paper filter flows about the same as a K&N. An oiled filter works well on a Briggs & Straton...

    Suggestion: If you are particularly irritated by another member's posting habits and are constantly fighting the urge to flame them, you can click on that person's profile, and select "Add to ignore list." This will make that person's posts invisible to you.

    had the K&N but ditched it because it got dirty really quickly and sucks hot air back into the intake. Also i saw no gain from running the K&N over a LID when i dyno'd my car.

    nothing much just bolt ons. i want to get a cam but still researching and deciding which one. Leaning towards the Torq V2. What do you think Z28boy ?

    if you've got a functional ram air hood then I'd get the k&n/volant setup. if you don't just get a lid/k&n filter, other wise like nhraformula said your gonna be sucking hot air=no bueno at WOT
