Has anyone heard anything about these? I see they are just like the the k and n but they are cheaper. They also fit your regular air intake box. I was thinking of getting one, im cheap and cant afford a k and n plus the intake for them. So anybody think they are worth it?

I'm planning on giving them a shot. Won't use their Oil filters anymore, but their air filters have been good up til now...

hi

if you go this route, be advised that these oiled - permanent type filters usually accompany high Si levels in the engine oil as they appear to sacrifice filtering ability for higher flow.

this is not healthy for your engine'* long term viability.

i'd go with a high flow paper filter like Baldwin.

When my car dies from Si injestion, I'll put out the warning.
