ah,, thanks for the recomendations.. sounds interesting to look into...
I actually have a K&N open pod filter, and had it installed some time ago. As you say, it does have a "throatier" growl, but i dont really feel the extra push. Maybe my home-made heatshield is not working properly and therefore it sucks hot air. (I'm living in malaysia, the wheather here is really HOT in the afternoon). Are there actually different sizes of air intakes made specifically for engine capacity or they are all just in standard size. Mine is BIG compared to those i see fitted in car magazines. (it looks as though, it is more suitable for Japanese Turbo cars).
And again, i get comments that its not worth the buck to install that air intake of mine, because 1) it's too big 2) i'm running on an auto transmission 3) it guzzles petrol 4) it doesnt give me power.
hmm, is it "worth it" to modifiy a car with Auto Transmission?.. people do say that its not because i cant actually gain power from it
