K&N air filter

1468 32
hi
i was thinking that i want to buy a K&N air filter.
does it really make a difference?
if so =)

anybody know where i can get instructions on how to install it.
To let everybody know. i am a TOTAL noob at this.

This beast is my first car.
If it's tricky, should i bring it into a mechanic?

thanks for reading

Ummmmm, what exactly do you have in mind? Removing the airbox and replacing it with an open element filter? I can tell it makes no difference in performance, just lower the intake temps a bit and maybe helps the turbo spool just a little bit quicker. It makes a big difference in noise, you can really hear the turbo whistling and the bypass valve uuhhhhhh.......bypassing. :cheesy: Though I don't know how loud it'll be on a regular 2.3L.

oooooooooooooooooooo, a drop in filter, :lol: silly me. That's a piece of cake to change out. ;) We're talking about replacing the airbox with an open filter, something like this....


Don't think you'll notice a difference in performance, maybe a little fuel economy. Also don't know about the noise with a setup like that.
