    Luma na yun.

    In most filtration tests, K&N comes out at the top or near the top for aftermarket filters. It's still not as clean as a stock paper filter, but it flows so much better, it's worth the price.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    It comes out as second best among three filters tested (APEXI, K&N and SIMOTA). I dont remember the exact thread title but I remember reading it in the workshop section.

    I'm using a cone filter my ride (not K&N) and have noticed improvements in acceleration, torque and fuel efficiency. The gains are noticeable (along with the increased engine noise) in city driving but are best appreciated in long driving especially the ones that involve steep uphill drives.

    I'll be switching to K&N when the oil change comes around. Never mind the filter charging. I appreciate my hands getting dirty anyway

    yes. I got that link from a very old thread here.

    the link mbeige posted had a K&N user and had his personal test, that K&N doesn't filter dirt as much as stock paper. but all of the racing filters gives almost equal gains.

    btw, where do you guys buy K&N? may store ba dito that covers a lot of models?

    But in order for you to get the most out of the cold air intake you should route it to the front. The ones I saw here in the pics posted are just inhaling hot air, which is less dense, and so you get less oxygen per volume.

    Most accessory stores that carry K&N carry them in a variety of sizes. Finding one that will fit your ride takes some luck, searching, and experimenting. ;)

    *falken: ok salamat po.

    *Dyipi: I think Simota is Japan/Korea made and K&N is U.S made...

    I'm pretty happy with K&N... flow doesn't degrade as badly as my old Simotas did (I had them on my Sentra before)... and it's very free-flowing. I guess the only way I could get better air-flow is by using the steel-mesh filter, but that doesn't keep anything out. Looks damn cool, though... (still have one at home... )

    i considered purchasing drop-in type K&N Filter but changed my mind for the reason that it can't filter dirt the way stock filter does..

    siguro mas ok if safari snorkel na lang: cool air intake and flood fording ability. but the price hits the 20k php mark. also, sa nissan terrano lang available ung smooth-end snorkel without that large mouth thingy.. :P .. OT
