More breathing?  You've been reading too many ads, my friend.  Less filter
area (that's filter material measured in square inches)by a factor of, for
sure, at least 50% (and likely more), larger pores allowing far smaller
particles into the engine, and a serious potential for oil fouling the MAF
sensor, a not inconsiderable expense.  If K&Ns were as good as they claim,
they wouldn't need the humongous ad budget they have.  Too many true
independent tests out there revealing the truth.  Look for 'em!  John
