---318is--- is an unknown quantity at this point
Just wanted to know if anyone can tell me wether i could get more power out of a K&N panel filter for the air box
or a K&N 57i induction kit.

Anyone recomment other induction kits?

I know induction kits give a nice sound but i hear it can make certain cars perform worse than their standard airbox

Is the induction kit shielded from engine heat and from the engine fan? Either one can cause problems. Usually need to add exhaust kit to work well. If you pack more air in, need to get the air out. I'm not familiar with the 57I kit, can't help there. It really depends on the shape of the original air box. I've seen gains of NONE, to 8 to 10 hp (very rare).

The best way to add hp to the 4 cylinder is a Downing Atlanta supercharger kit. start saving money.
