K & N Drop in filter
Hey everybody, i was wondering if anybody with the 4.7 motor has the k & n drop in filter and if so did it make any kind of a noticeable difference with either a fuel mileage or performance difference and input would be appreciated....thanks

I had one for about 2 months before I upgraded the whole intake. Honestly, I couldn't tell that much of a difference. It may have something to do with the fact that I do a lot of city driving instead of highway. I know they are more efficient and produce better air flow, but I guess the more you drive, the better the gains.

I did the drop in and didn't see any improvement . Your better off applying that money to a CAI . There are several guys on here who have saved even more money by making their own CAI .

The drop in filter will only give you a couple HP. I do not think you will notice anything from it.I would just save a little money and get a CAI. You can find them on Ebay for like $100. I think that would be a wise choice!

I agree, save your money.
