I've read a few short write-ups on the K&N Studstack. Apparently it cleans up the airflow into the carb, resulting in more horspower; but I don't know any details.

Just how well does it actually work? Anyone have any personal experience with one, and about how much can I expect to pay?

Thanks!

I think you're actually looking for a K&N STUBSTACK. They run under $40 at Summit.

Can't personally attest to the claimed gains. There's people who swear by them, as well as people who swear at them.........

Thanks for the link Clone. Summit does indeed list the part as a Stubstack; but the November '99 Mustang&Fords I have here at my desk calls it a Studstack. Neither one sounds very appealing!

I put a K&N substack on my Holley, I have not seen them for Edlebrock.
I can "feel"and hear a noticeable the difference and will also put one on my '68 when I can.
It does require at least 1-1.5 inches above the top of your air cleaner lid.( per instructions) With less than that I could feel no difference. So if you have a recessed base like I do you will have to build it up for the required clearance. I paid about $36 at PAW for mine.

yeah, but you have a "substack" ... the question was about the "studstack" and Clone decided to link the "stubstack". Where were we /forums/images/icons/wink.gif?

I guess a studstack is not as good as a "studSACK" but I would not know as I am stuck with a "regular sack! LOL
