I'll keep that in mind if I start to have problems, thanks.

Re: Thinking of going with the K&N Filter

I run a K&N intake on my Jeep, it works great and sounds awesome. Im not sure if the filter alone will make a difference in sound though.

I might go with that this summer if I don't like the drop in filter. which Magnaflow are you running, the round or the oval, the 4" or the 5"?

It makes a HUGE difference in sound this video is it just idleing about 2min after I installed it, I wish I would have taken a video of me driving before I installed the muffler but even now it sounds great, I was cleaning the snow off tonight with it running and could hear the intake 15 foot away as it idled and it makes you engine bay look so much cooler. =)

Re: Thinking of going with the K&N Filter

I dropped in the K&N today and man did it make a diff! The old filter was pretty dirty though so that might have had something to do with it.
But I did get better throttle response and it sounds better, not louder, just better after putting in the new one!
So far I'm happy with the results but I'm starting to get Mod fever!!!

Re: Thinking of going with the K&N Filter

Yeah I know what ya mean. I want to do the muffler, cai, and some rims. Not sure if I want aftermarket or stick w/stock yet, though I do like the Sahara's & Ronin II's on the WK.
