that is a good point, but how many paper filters are washable and reusable? not very many i would imagine...so even if its not a k&n its probably a high-flow unit of some sort made of probably similar materials to a k&n..

on another note which mod do you think would result in better gas mileage? i know both would, assuming i could keep from going WOT every 5 minutes...i know the exhaust is restrictive, the intake is so-so, no baffles or anything, just sharp turns...id like for these mods to slowly pay for themselves both in increased driving pleasure and fuel economy.

i know this is the wrong forum to be asking questions about a 3.5 shortstar Intrigue, but the Intrigue forums are either dead, or full of ppl who dont really know that much, so i go here instead.

EDIT: i found this in a post made by the owner of tranzgenic in another forum, someone asked him about the filter used.

"We are using "Funnel Ram" filters currently. They are an inverted top style cotton/gauze filter, are washable, and carry a 50,000 mile warranty. "

says theyre an off-brand k&n pretty much.

hmm... with a quick look at what you're considering, I'd recommend:

a) the exhaust

until

b) you had the time to do the intake yourself. for what they're asking, you can make yourself a nice little setup. Just take your time, get the parts you want, and piece it together until it looks good.

Yeah in light of the actual brand of the filter, I would go exhaust. I never noticed that they were offered in different colours, instantly tells you not a KN
