yeah lamborghini i have witnessed an increase in the performance with the k&n and the free flow .
i have an increase at about 10-12 hp.
it gave a boost to the pick up and in high speeds too.
the k&n is just amazing man and the work done by automech is cool .

Hey Bhp,

How did you arrive at that figure for your hp increase?

i had got the configuraton of my car got checked from the ford service station . they have some machines by which u can come to know . the ppl frm automech also had told me that you will increase yr hp by installizing the free flow and k&n .

Hey Bud,

IMO a 10-12hp increase from just a K&N and Freeflow is rather unlikely!
Also i doubt that the ford service station has a dyno to measure horsepower! (would love it if they did however!)

And it is true that the free flow from automech and KnN will give you more hp, but 10-12hp is a bit optimistic!

cheers

Hey even i think a 10-12 bhp gain is unlikely. Unless maybe the stock exhaust system really robs power from it's engine.
