Ive used kn on several vehicles to save on replacing the paper element that was stock. I ve never seen an increase in mpg, just noise and maybe a change in performance.

Waste of money, more fines go thru, then you have to buy the oil & cleaner to maintain them, papers better. (Not that I haven't had a couple)

If your not just trolling...
U might try sheach echo mod threads for:
1. Aba testing (anything else is "the bull sheet")
2. Kn filters. There are several factual threads.

BS, plus the oil in the filter messes with your airflow sensor.

Clean and oil it? I used the same filter for the life of the car unserviced. They say the more dirty it is the better it works.

I feel we have a problem here.

If TheSheet (welcome!) is a spambot all these replies are a waste of time.
If (s?)he is an aspiring ecomodder we put her off big time. Yes her claim doesn't sound true to our 'expert' ears. She didn't follow the read, read, read, introduce, post protocol.
But you cannot teach good manners with harshness alone.

So, what to do.
I don't like the idea of scaring away new members just because they make some incrediulous claim in their first post.
Nor would I like to waste any time on some clever spam bot or trolling fool.

Do we have to tackle this issue in some way? Or just let it bleed out?

I purchased the crz kn cai and put it on my insight. All I can say is VROOMMMmmmmm. Its noticeably louder and there is a chang ein the power band. It no longer seems to hyperventilate as you approach redline, but in fact keeps pulling. Unlike the maze the air had to travel through its just a piece of pipe bent at a 90 degree angle with a cone shape filter on the end. No improvement in mpg, but the butt dyno says yes.

Well.....if your concern is real and sincere, then you wouldn't talk about her?(really..) like she's dead.
Instead, you welcome them and address them, laugh the other posters off and move on.
Unfortunately your post is lame
