They are about $40-$50 depending on the exact unit. I have one in my
'89 100Q. Buy it for the maintenance, not the breathing. The power
improvement from the filter alone is negligible. If you are planning
on improvements to the cam, air box, throttle body, or exhaust, then
a K&N is the logical first step.
