I can make you a deal in one with about 500 miles on it. Can't post in the for sale section yet due to lack of overall post. It is like new, and still in the box. grlaws@bellsouth.net

I put in an AEM DryFlow drop in air filter over a month ago and I noticed a big difference in throttle response. Especially on cool dry mornings. Ha ha. Seriously, I noticed squat from it. Maybe I need to try a K&N or Airaid filter

Default K&N

Sorry guys but there is really no Horsepower difference after you install a K&N drop in filter. It is a better filter that will last forever if you clean and oil it but your butt dyno is fooling you. And it sounds better too???? How can that be with a silenced air box? It's all in your head. Do a real dyno test before and after, then prove me wrong. This otta get a few replies.

I said before that I thought it made the exhaust louder but it was probably my imagination. I think the "butt dyno" works the same. My Charger is muffler delete and has a cai. It seemed to have more power after those mods, but I think a dyno would tell the truth. Things like headers,gear changes,cam or heads are the only way to make really noticeable hp increases.

Well since I own both the K&N and the stock filter, I tested my theory. There is a CLEAR difference in the sound vs the stock. As far as the HP you might be right however K&N has stated that it is dyno proven to increase HP and MPG.

It's an more free flowing filter even thought it is just a drop in. I have noticed a difference in sound. Now horse power, i would agree. It's not going to give you 10hp more. you might just get a little better response in mpg. But i can tell you that i can see a difference from stock filter to K&N

The K&N's are proven to be a more efficient filter over stock filters. Will a drop in give you more power yes but not enough to notice. Will it allow your engine to run more efficiently you bet it will.


A new high flowing filter has been the first mod I have done on every automobile I have ever owned.

your talking just the filter to drop in your existing box, right? No cold air intake system?
