You can't go wrong with a K&N drop in filter. Easy to install and keep clean, and will last forever...plus you pick up a few extra HP to boot.
A low buck mod with proven results!

It's just a replacement for the stock air filter. Just take the stock one out, put the K&N in and your done 8)

Bump.... Just got a K&N filter and installed it today. I imidiatly noticed a difference. Engine sound is a bit louder, but the motor wakes up some especially in maual mode. For the price it's a great drop in mod.

DO you have to remove the air filter case (box thingy) to put the air filter in ??? Cause you don't have enough space to put if you just open the front right ? Or whats the best wat to do it :?: :?: :?:

I've done it both ways. It is very difficult to remove/replace the filter without opening up the box.

Its no big deal. Real quick and have it installed in five minutes.

Makes a big difference and a great roar when you step on the gas

Correct. What I should have written was it's easy if you disconnect the MAF and open the box. It was very difficult when I jsut tired to crack it open and out the stock filter.

I installed it by just cracking the box open and pulling out the old one and putting in the KN filter. You dont need to remove anything but you do need to unscrew the single bold that is holding the air box in place.

If I have a plan to install the CAI, still I can get the K&N air filter?
I mean they can be working together? :roll:

CAI replaces the stock filter box and has it's own filter, so no, they would not work together.

Man, I'd love to have seen you do that. I tried to do exactly that yesterday .. I can get the air cleaner case apart just far enough to ALMOST get the filter out, but not quite. I was really wedging the thing open as hard as I could, and just didn't have the opening nor the dexterity to get it out of there. After 20 minutes, I gave up.

I saw the write-up on the board, with the official Infi directions on how to do it .. but, quite frankly, I'm not that .. courageous. :oops:

From reading the official directions .. I'm afraid I'm going to unseat the "resonator" from the bottom .. I can't see nor feel that sucker .. being more courageous, I'd actually go under the car, but I was hoping to avoid that.

Any hints for the non-adept?

What price did you find for the K&N and where did you get it? Best price I have seen is $39 but shipping sux.

When I first installed the drop in..I unclipped the box and pryed it back and dragged the stock one out...the K&N are narrower,so easier to get back in
