Very untrue, sorry for the disappointment but a K&N Drop in filter in an esteem MPFI will do nothing! I wrote up on this in another thread but cant find it now. Anyway, if you cannot take my word on this, then let the thread starter's own analysis prove that it did not do anything, as he says he tried it out and did nothing!

An esteem MPFI has a nice engine and they really improved it and twieaked it up when they went to fuel injection. The air-box of the esteem is not restrictive in stock form, so a K&N will no nothing, and even IF it gave 1-2HP more (which is highly doubtful), you cannot really tell this while driving.

I had to drive back to the dealer for a typo in the reciept and unlike the test drive after the filter i was driving normally.... no deliberate flooring of the accelerator.... no deliberate attempts to evaluate the pickup and performance....

....And to my surprise the car was very peppy and responsive. Very Very quick and zip zip zip.... i dont even have to floor the pedal now....

i freaked as i almost avoided hitting some biker.....

Hey K&N... Add me to your list of excited new customers.

I cant wait to get behind her wheel and take her for a spin ;-)

Thanx 2u all.
I would say that the car is now 'peppier' as a result of the cleaner injectors. Had you done this BEFORE getting the K&N, you would have seen the same improvent! If the K&N was meant to really help, it would have after the installation, and cleaning the injectors cannot be connected with the K&N in any way. Hope this helps.
