Default Air hog...

has anyone used the Fram Airhog? is it as good as an K&N I got one today but after I thought about it and figured id ask here before installing it to see what you guys think, If i should take it back and get a K&N from someware else (it cost $91cnd :( )

performance wise is it comparable to the K&N?

$91?

Not sure on the comparison, but it'* made by Fram, so I don't like it.

dont have any problems with fram but jeeze 91 bucks CA sounds like a serious ripoff, it would be a lot cheaper for someone in the states to buy a K&N and ship it to you.....

I ran a K&N in my S10 and an Air Hog in my Jeep and Bonne before the rice pipe. AirHog is alot cheaper in these parts and in my oppinion just as good.

Why do some have a problem with Fram? Just curious, is there something I should know?
