I am looking at this K&N air intakes on ebay, here is the site.


do I need the heat shield for it or is ok just to buy it and install it like that?

or should I just get the rectangler filter for my original box air intake?

which is the best?

A heat shield is required to block the hot air from the engine from being sucked right back by the K&N filter...

also a properly made heat shield will ensure constant bhp being produced..

Heres a link on making a heatshield by yourself..

This filter will have better air flow compared to the rectangular drop-in K&N filter i'll say!!..
