Performance???

Per K + N's website: The K&N FilterCharger® air filter is designed to achieve high, virtually unrestricted air flow while maintaining filtration levels critical to ensure long engine life. Our automotive OE (original equipment) replacement air filters generally add 1-4 horsepower.

Other than that, you may save a little $ over time by not buying paper replacements... But,,,, Takes about 2 minutes to swap a paper filter out,,, Takes quite a bit longer to wash, dry, and re-oil a K + N,,, No big deal if time is of no concern,,,

Also don't forget the cost of the recharge kit for the filter.

regardless, let us all know what you get and your results. good luck with whatever you do.
O yeah, Ive read it..I believe Chefred has said it more than once that hes tried most of them and really likes the BFI and the vararam and owns both. As youve mentioned the gen 3s has waited 2 years to receive there BFI and close to the end of the road..and the vararam is still in design stages. In all honesty I cant wait that long for what, maybe 10 more horses than the other brand? I think I can find them ponys elsewhere so to speak in less time, no offense to anyone, just my train of thought. There is a gen 4 mule running a vararam now at the other forum and has cracked 13s with a QC 2wd. Its either the Volant or the K&N CAI soon so I can have a chance to test it at the track before they close. Whats your take on that new filter Volant is using? Cant wait to hear from you guys as well, those BFIs are bad as hell looking. On a side note, Im only comparing the intakes that I pictured.. no BFI or Vararam mentioned for its not available to us... to avoid any confusion

I like my K&N and customer service is great i had the cone for a year and there where small rust spots on the chrome and i called them and spoke with em' and they shipped me out a brand new cone and i said "do yo u want the old one back" and she said "nope, you can keep it or throw it away its up to you" so i give em' 2 thumbs up

I dont know if this is a repost, but has anybody noticed how wide the scoop is from the fender on the volant? You can almost the double the size of the hole on the fender with some snips and utilize the size of the volant fender scoop. Couple that with "jmr tube mod" I would think you can end up with a decent setup. Whats everybodys take on the new style volant filter?

I actually have a round old style chrome K&N air filter. I have never read the specs of how they compare to the newer styles.

I'm assuming you're referring to the PowerCore filter? If so, that is the exact reason i got the Volant. The great thing about the PowerCore is the air flow direction and the way the filter 'loads up'. I could go on and on but there's a much better explanation here
http://www.volantpowercore.com/
It has more than 10x the filtration area of a typical conical filter and they warranty the filter for 100k miles.
I'm extremely happy with mine so far.

I have a Mopar cold air intake and love it. I don't like the oil filled filters because I think the oil effects your oxygen senser.

If that happens, you put WAY too much oil on. I learned to oil filters on dirtbikes, and it's not spray painting!
