They don't make a huge difference on a street car. You probable
won't feel the difference but your motor does. I can't feel any
difference on the track cars either. It is such a small amount of
gain, but any gain is good. If you do several little things it will make
a difference you can feel. I use the flow through top also. It has
been proven that the K&N filter does help. I use the K&N stub stack
on the track cars as well.

GET BACK IN THE CAN WORMS!!! Hehe, honestly, the only engines I've noticed a difference from a K&N on are the turbo engines in my Talon... But thats a big difference from a NA engine, which I have NEVER seen a difference in.

Depends on who you ask, I guess. I didn't notice that much difference on my '98 F-150 (5.4L, 3.55 in rear). I did notice an improvement on my '65 Mustang, but the old filter was badly in need of replacement so a new foam or paper filter may have had the same effect. They are nice because the don't have to be messed with very often, and that's one less thing I have to worry about. They're cheaper in the long run, also. Plus I like the look of the reddish filter peeking out... <g>
Well I'm letting my 200 cubic inch breathe a lot easier already with a 2 barrel Weber DCOE carburetor and a 250 cubic inch Aussie head... So I figure, why the heck not a better air filter... Thanks guys =)
I was REALLY hoping no one would ask that question, because I didn't want to have to say that I shamefully, disrespectfully paid someone to do it for me... To the tune of 600 bucks.
There goes my pride! He also figured out a way to keep my stock air cleaner with some type of adapter from Clifford so I'm happy... The car idles so much better now, along with a LOT more tire-spinning goodness.
Noticed small power increase and MPG in my '97 - Virtually Nothing on the '67. (When she was still running.)
