intake ?'s

i have a full k&n setup now, pipes, box, filter... instead of spending a whole lot more money on a new setup i was wondering which brands will fit nicely on that k&n tubing and is actually a good filter. i know the 6637 will slide right on but i was thinking about trying to keep the k&n box (cage) and just run another filter.... any suggestions would be helpful

Re: intake ?'s

Get the measurements from the k&n filter and check out s&b, afe, or airaid. I bet one of them will have one that fits. I am running an Airaid dry filter and I am really happy with it.

Re: intake ?'s

There is nothing wrong with the K&N filter heads... The issue is the drop in filters.

No matter what all the nut swinging read it on the internet people tell you.

The issue with K&N filters has been, and always will be the way it sealed to the factory box.

thanks for the input, so with keeping the K&N head + giving it a routine bath/lube i should be alright? a lot of people seem to think even having a full k&n system is garbage

Lots of people regurgitate things they read on the internet...

K&N use the same type of filter media as AFE and S&B.

Clean the filter properly.
