    Hey everyone I was wondering if I would get any performance gains from dropping in a K&N high flow fliter but no tune. Its the same filter that comes with the FRPP power pack 1 for the 2011-2012 5.0. When you order it through ford you also get a computer retune, so is the re-tune neseccary or...

    I have a cold air intake, in a 2004 V6 Coupe, that locates the filter outside the engine bay, in the fender of the car. I would like to replace the current filter with a K&N filter but i have no idea what size will fit in the fender of the car. I am not worried about the size pipe it connects to...

    I have a 2011 Shelby and the air filter is looking pretty dirty. At what interval are you guys changing your cone style air filter? What are you replacing it with? Any benefit to changing it to an aftermarket CAI? The new steeda one looks nice.

    I have a 1984 Mustang GT, automatic, fuel injected. The problem is when I go to change the air filter the filter strongly smells of gas. Any suggestions or insight will help. Thanks.:winks

    I'm getting a K&N FIPK soon, and I was just wondering if the filter oil/cleaner kit was really necessary and more cost effective than buying a new drop-in filter at some point. Has anybody used this kit?

    Im a college kid trying to save money on a new air filter cover, and it seems the prices on classicinlines.com are way to expensive for such a simple set up like this below. I currently have a 66 inline 6 200ci with a brand new autolite 1100. I want to fashion something exactly like this open...

    Hey guys, I am brand new to the forum but have had my 65 convertible for 11 years now! I need to replace the HiPo Air Filter, but I am having the hardest time finding one that will fit the right diameters. I believe it should be OD=14" and H=2.25". The one I am replacing was a CA114 which...

    So, for several years i knew the car had a small oil leak somewhere. i would find oil spray on the underside of the engine, but the car never consumed oil between changes and i do check the level regularly and often. the last couple months the car has been eating about a quart of oil between...
