Thumbs up K&n

Ok so heres my story. I've been using a short ram for awhile now and I had been using a cheap air filter for all my filtering needs. So one day I decide to get a K@N filter for my 300zx turbo. I had bought the Z a few months back and I was hopping to get it running. Well i didn't so the K@N filter was just sitting in the car. One night I decide to take it off the z and try it on my lude. Now the filter that I had been using was from SPECTOR and was like 6-8 in long. The K&N one is like a freaking 1.5ft long.

Took my lude for a drive and OMG what a diff. No the one before wasnt dirty or anything but damn. Props up to K@N. They may be alittle more higher priced but in the end your gona be so much more happier. And your car will to.

I have not felt a difference on any of my cars, but they all have a K&N. It is just nice to know that I have a quality filter that I never have to replace. I have used a K&N on everything btw, but honestly, unless you have a wicked HP car. The difference is only going to be in the ass dyno unless you were using a rock as a filter.

Never noticed a difference but after reading up on filters they're one of the best.

ive never liked k&n filters but most of my applications were off road oriented. ive seen sand in the bottom of airboxes on countless dirtbikes, quads, buggys, and even trucks... for the street tho it may be fine since you arent seeing sand roost very often. just my .02

I would have to agree with ya but why not go with a filter that never has to be replaced. If ya dont care about hp the throtle response is something to think about.

K&N are provent hp uppers...maybe as little as one or two, but anything is better than nothing. Ive used them on my bike for 11yrs, and just installed on the lude yesterday...WOW! Total difference! I love the fact that its the last air filter i will ever have to buy for my vehicles.

k and n and flowstack FTW. Quality filter that can be cleaned, and never has to be replaced.

ok K&N dont make a filter for 3gen. I have used them in a ford truck camaro camry celica and stratus. Each vehicle gets much better throttle responce and improve gas economy. the stratus gets 40 + mpg . They are good quality and pay for themself in a few months. I know I sound like the ad but this is the one wiz bang product that delivers

I think about 4 seconds of searching on google will show you that K&N makes a filter for the stock 3g airbox.

BAM! Here is mine I pulled out of my stock airbox.

How much stuff can I remove from the stock system if I go to a K&N?

It looks like there's alot in that maze that can be lost. What can I get rid of without hurting performance/ emissions?

Thanks for any help, I'm new to Honda cars.

If your going to pull the filter canister you can remove everything up to the throttle body. Its actually going to help free horsepower because that maze your talking about was designed to quiet the airflow to the intake. just check to make sure you can get it in its pretty cramped. I relocated my battery so that i could put it there. Ill upload a pic of my first effort in a little while. Take it all out!

Frankly, I've never felt a difference with K&N. Had them on various bikes and cars.
From what I've read, the only difference you may feel is at hi rpm with the pedal to the metal. Either that or it's just the placebo effect.
