Default Aftermarket Air Filters

Just wondering if these are worth the cost. I know that K&N are really expensive and was wondering if there is any difference between a K&N and basically buying the tubing and filter separate and saving money.

Trying to squeeze some better fuel economy out of it. 20 Dollars gets me 147 miles though before my low fuel light comes back on. Low fuel light got me on a 100 mile trip once ......barely

A few of them are worth the cost, including but not limited to the K&N'*, AMSOil EaAR, Fram Air Hog, etc...

Do not get the cheap parts store filters, they actually hold water.

I personally run a K&N. I would look into getting a FWI (fender well intake) for your 93 from INTENSE

The Intense kit will improve both performance and fuel economy with clean cool air.

Got the K&N already and ordered the tubing from Intense. Just figuring what to do with the sensor in the airbox, I think its the air flow sensor. Probably gonna use some magic to place it into the tubing nice and neat

You did buy a 3" flanged filter, right? And 3" tubing?

You'll need some method to couple them together.

Yeah I have the filter and am waiting on the tubing after talking to some fellow members via PA. The filter is not going into the fender its gonna be resting above the horn in the space the airbox used to be and I'm gonna put some material around it to prevent warm air from getting to it.
