Hello, I've noticed a few posts concerning K & N air filters, and they
don't seem to be bad. Against this, Honda owners seem to go berserk
when the subject is mentioned of using a non honda part as regards
engine longevity. So basically, what I'm asking is: Who's right? And
are these filters only good on American (GM) cars? And if so, why or
why not?..Thanks.. Ted

Following up on what Brent said, I had used a K&N on my '95 Jimmy. It ran
for about 100K miles with the CAI system. I noticed little difference in
All my other cars/trucks/vans have had the $2 paper part replaced about
every 3-5K miles. Works just as well, since I don't particularly floor it
on a regular basis.
Save your money, go to Vegas.
From what most people say, the car "sounds like" it has more power
with a K&N, but the tests show it doesnt really help much if at all.
Tests have been cited where the K&N lets more dirt into the engine
than good quality paper filters.
My choice would be to avoid them.
