They made a 100Q with the 20V?  I have a '90 90Q20V, and an '89 100Q 10V.
I'm jealous....

I put a K&N in my '89 100Q. OK, that's a lie. I paid my mechanic to
do it. He charged me $5. I agree there is a lot of stuff to get through
to get at the filter box.

As for the gain, it is noticeable. The car breathes a LOT better,
especially at high revs. I have noticed much more available at
4000-6000 RPM, either at WOT or not.

BTW, why do you think the 20V "leaves a lot to be desired in terms
of performance"?  I love my 20V. You just need to drive it fairly
agressively. None of this wimpy 2000 RPM bull. Gimme 5000!

Only my cat shares my opinions, and she can do about 20 RPM.
