Default K&N Drop in

Bought one this weekend. You can obviously hear the difference. My butt dyno says it has a bit more get up. You can feel the HEMI breathing better. Good investment for sure

Love my K&N Drop-in, my dyno-butt also confirms improved performance.

I agree. Great investment!! I put one in my truck about a month ago. It can breathe easier, and I love the deeper throatier sound with the K&N in it.

How much did you pay? It's probably the next thing I will do, well maybe... so many mods so little time (and money!)

The filter itself was around the $80 point however I never need to buy another filter. The recharge kit was about $20 I think (don't remember exact cost) and it's good for several recharges. I have 20k on the filter and just did my first recharge, it was a piece of cake to do it.

Not too pricey, the only knock I've ever heard is when guys forget to oil them.

Don't forget those are American prices, we always get ripped off up here and have to spend slightly more.

Thanks for writing up this thread, Teufel-pup! I think you were the straw on the camel's back for me to purchase a drop in. Next pay day I will probably pick one up.
