Oho! I should have thought. So you are still laughing (or is it laaffeeeng? ).

Hmmm... Is it the stock replacement one that you have or the conical one with induction kit? Would you say that the difference is big time noticeable? As in would you say the difference is as big as getting a hard kick in the pants?

Yeah Zappo - i'm a bit sceptical too, yet tempted. Whatever's letting in more air into the engine should logically, for similar reasons, be letting larger micron particles too. The only question is - how bad is this tradeoff. No doubt the performance will go up (2-4% for the dropins and upto 8% for the universal ones as per RAC guys who deal in them here) but there is no free lunch. Whats the price one pays - huge/insignificant/random ?

There are already too many threads with K&N as the topic of discussion, But For the record i will once again vouch for the advantages that i have experienced with a K&N. An FE of 19 on the highway and 12.5 with ac in crazy bumper to bumper bombay traffic. that is atleast a increase of 1 kmpl over my earlier FE in city driving.
