    i agree with the other sirs about what they said.

    remain stock unless you want a little engine accent and deep intake sound.

    Consider also the following:

    Cost of an OEM Air Filter - P1,100.00 (this is casa price and my car is a Lynx 2.0 RS); it requires replacement every 5000km; and in my case, I'll need 3 replacement in one-year.

    Cost of a KNN Filter - P3,500.00 - P4,000.00; good enough for the entire lifetime of the car, i.e., if we are to believe the manufacturer.

    I may not get a significant increase in HP using a KNN filter but certainly I can save quite a sum as opposed to using the OEM air filter. After a little over a year bawi na initial cost of my KNN filter.

    12k?! AFAIK K&N cone types price ranges from 3k-5k. you can attach it on to the stock intake tube or get those simota tubes for 1.5-2k. it won't cost you 12k unless if its one of those complete K&N setups like the FIPK2

    hmm...but won't we need to "recharge" the filter with some kind of K&N fluid every once in a while? magkano kaya ung fluid?

    Minimal lang sound difference from stock pag drop in. Pero when you switch off the engine may parang whoosh sound hehehehe

    What is the advantage of using a drop in k&n airfilter vs stock?

    its reusable. and you still retain that "stock" look on the engine bay compared to open type filters.
