A few things regarding filters...
Hot Rod Magazine received a letter from K&N stating their test had some scientific problems in regards to their research method. K&N and Hot Rod are suppossed to follow up with the details soon (check the little print on page 16 of August 2002 issue)
K&N, along with several other aftermarket filters, are fire retardent! I saw a buddies Rustang backfire through the carb, catch the paper air cleaner element on fire and melt his fiberglass hood!!
As others have stated, it will probably be the last filter you ever buy!
