I do and I had one. It fit so sloppily that unfiltered air could get around it. I ended up placing a foam Unifilter over it to hold it snug to the K&N.tjsooley said:did you know that k&n makes a pre filter for the cone filter for offroading
The dealer said it was the right size, then I griped to K&N directly and they sent me one free that they said was for my particular K&N filter model #... and it was the same model Outerwears filter with the same too loose fit. The elastic didn't close off that side of the bag very well at all, a fly could have flown into the filter from the gap that was all the way around.tjsooley said:did you get the wrong size b/c they make like 4 different sizes
alexb said:Well, the biggest restriction in the air flow is your throttle plate. So until it is wide open, there is no difference between a paper filter and a K&N (or no filter at all if that matters, just open the throttle a little more to get the same amount of air). And at WOT the engine runs open-loop, pumping a predetermined amount of gas.
So the only difference that can be noticed is at near-WOT condition. How often do you drive at near-WOT?
Since driving at or near WOT is not exactly economical, how any gas savings can be achieved?

What a waste of friggin money, time, and energy trying to get a K&N to filter air adequately.
The below is my K&N/K&N Outerwears/Unifilter combo that is now finally collecting dust in my junkbox... better than it ever did when it was on my Jeep.
