x2; a real CAI is certainly worthwhile, while a replacekment panel filter will do nothing. I immediately noticed more power after installing my AFE stage II, as the intake tube to the TB is huge compared to stock.

Re: Drop in filter-K&N or AFE Proguard 7

I have a drop in K&N in my 3.7 and the only thing that I really noticed was about 1 MPG better. It's nice not having to change the air filter every 20,000 though.

Re: Drop in filter-K&N or AFE Proguard 7

I have CAI with the aFe Proguard filter. From what I've read, the aFe filters better but flows slightly less than the K&N.
