poor student cannot afford..is it really worth it?
or any other lower priced alternative
I would like to know this info too.ekizz said:how much of a difference does a K&N filter make performance-wise, compared to an ebay filter?
also if you want to clean out your filter, do you just wash it under water then reoil it or what? and how often should you clean your filter
where to get a good used CAI for my B13?NickZac said:. You will notice even better mileage with a CAI than a K&N and without a doubt a good power gain. If you are on a budget, I would just get the K&N unless you find a good used CAI. The K&N is cleanable and only needs to be cleaned about every 50k miles. In the long run, it saves money for gas so there is no reason not to live it up.
No, you dont want to cheap out on brands for cold air intakes. Our forum here in the classified section currently has multiple used HotShot CAIs for your car up for sale. I honestly dont know all the good names for your car, but if you search in your section I'm sure you can find out what you need to know. Goodluck.a_d_y_a said:where to get a good used CAI for my B13?
cheap one at Walmart??
Buy PSr's K&N filter then use a hole saw and cut some 2" holes in the bottom of your air box, about 6 would be plenty. voila you have a cheap intake.PSr_SEX-R said:ill sell you mine for 20 bucks but you pay for shipping selling it cuz i got a cold-air
and ill even clean it for yeah before i send it
otherwise you could just buy a cone filter you can find some cheep ones out there
UMMMM......Twiz said:Hotshot CAI came with some filter called SPW... it's got a funnel opening on top also to let air in, I like those... I'd say any performance air filter that doesn't rust is good. 15 or 60 bucks... I don't believe in any difference anymore. Get one that has that opening on top also... they let even more air in... I don't like the HKS mushroom kind... they're very ugly... looks like sponge bob oval pants.
idk, but the 3in fits the MAF holes's diameter, if its any smaller it will bottle neck it. how ever i do know the curent gen. of hot shot CAI have a 2.5inch pipe, the part that goes between the MAF and the throttle body. and that is suppost to provide better power.ekizz said:does a 3 inch intake have better power gains or performance as opposed to a 2.5 inch intake?
