The new K&N is better than an Amsoil. Larry's intake is the best bang for your buck as far as intake's go.

JUst Curious to why the K&N is better than the Amsoil. Is it price, air flow, easy cleaning?? Just curious. If it is price, I can fix that. I am an Amsoil dealer, so I will sell them at cost.

I have a K&N cone filter on my 96L sedan and it kicks a$$. No low end power loss, and a definite power increase throughout the power band that can be felt (and heard! such a nice sound!) I would definitely recommend the K&N! As for the amsoil I can't say, I've never had one in.

I already sell AMSOIL's for $10 under my cost when you buy an intake !

The AMSOIL can go 25,000 miles between cleanings, and should last longer than K&N before falling apart - I would also assume the AMSOIL has more surface area to capture dirt. I believe they perform the same as a K&N.

So, that's what I think...

Larry,
Alot of ppl recommend your intake. Upon doing some search I notice that your intakes are too long therefore poking the fender out. Has that been corrected yet? Also there seems to be alot of iterations. It gets quite confusing. Are the specs on your website latest? Thanks.

Delhi-The only problem with them poking the fender out was the fault of the installer not being careful when positioning it inside the fender. I followed that post rather closely.

Delhi - Once the intake is attached to the airbox, it is 1.5 - 2" away from the inside of the outer fender, and CANNOT touch the fender and ding it. Don't forget the picture someone posted showing their fender dented in from an accident, and the pushed in fender still NEVER contacted the intake that was on the car at the time.

It was likely occuring during the install, and even then, only 3 or 4 people out of over 100 Version 5's sold had this unfortunate mishap - and all the info at the wesite is current.

I thought about cutting the intakes shorter anyway, but it is still possible to poke it in too far and ding the outer fender no matter how much pipe I remove, unless I make the intake only 4 inches long so you can't reach the inside of the outer fender But, then it wont reach the airbox...
