The stock replacement is just like plug n play....
Conical performance filter has to placed properly under the hood else it will hamper the performance of your vehicle by absorbing all the hot air from the engine....
The filter should cost u around 5K(approx)

Automech hv got 2 types for free flow systems i think. One will give u a fair rise in performance while the other one is mainly for the sound with a marginal increase in performance.

A free flow with a K&N will be an awesome combo n u won't regret it..

Will there B a noticable diff in fuel eco??No I find the sudden pick up of the car is very less...there seems to be no power even at 70km/hr in 4th gear...wat could be the reason???anything to do with FUEL injection..my car have just completed 40K kms.finished a service at 38K...everything done by authorised dealers...aqny other Accent tornado owners in the forum...the sdervice guyz said there is a slight prob with the tappet setting of my car but nothing serious anf they said they would fix it later for Rs.6K....but Iam worried if this problem will hav any part in damaging my engine....will free--flow help in the LOW--end TORQUE...
THANX in Advance.

Free flows generally improve high end performance but they can be designed to boost low end torque
