    At the store ( I work at an Advance Auto Parts store) we have a makeshift setup that has a ping-pong ball being held up by 2 fans that pipe air through the filter. With a stock paper filter it hovers about 2 inches from the top... once you swap the K&N in the ball shoots to the top and sticks to it. Not saying it filters better.. or gives any gains.. but it seems to flow better... just my observation.....

    Im still using my fram filter....works great for me. I guess when I have all the mods on the car I want i'll spend the extra $50 bucks or whatever to see if it actually makes a difference. For now with hardly anything it's not going to make a damn bit of difference.
