Hey Black ,
Thanks for the info
I'm not knocking K&N, I was thinking about a big open element
filter like I have on my Diesel ,
I'll check out the K&N
Mahalo

"ran away from cop using DRIFTING "

now thats an interesting procedure!

I would say just keep your stock one clean, and you should be fine... the intakes on these engines are not bad stock...

regardless, the box restricts air flow, an open filter lets the engine suck in a lot more air

Yeah, hot air. And even with it heat shield it's only going to give you .5-1 HP so it's not even worth it. Stock flows good.
