It's not the topspeed that changes with K&N! but surely the way that topspeed is achieved. If it was a struggle before, now it should be smooth holly molly!!!

And regarding the maintenance of the filters, Better get it cleaned every 10k. 15k is a must cleaning time. And it can be done DIY if you have all the necessities including passion!

I am using stock replacement filter for SWIFT. It really made a good difference in terms of performance and marginally on FE.

Not very sure about this guys but I would recomend contacting methods online, who should be able to give you the right model of filter for your car make.

I wanted to know if any one has got chargers for the K&N, which I heard is very handy in themansoon and also wanted to know how much does it cost with the entire kit to clean the filter.

I see you are in Hyderabad, can you tell me where I can get a KN filter in this city? I am looking for the filter for my zen-mpfi petrol model.

Thanks

Have been using the filter maybe for around 2months now. Its worth the money, thats for sure. But its not AS good as it was initially (not that its bad, its still very good) but that could be due to clogging as a result of a lot of dirty air, dust etc. in the city

Here are the figures, tested y'day.
1st - ??
2nd - 105kmph
3rd - 140kmph
4th - Couldn't test it [/quote]
