The K&N will outperform the BBK, for a number of reasons, including heat sink. the effect occurs with the matal intakes, no matter where the air is drawn from.V6racer04 said:Which one do you think would give out more horsepower? A chrome BBK fenderwell intake, or a plastic K&N intake? I know the chrome would heat up, but would placing the filter in the fenderwell overcome the heat?
none of them should require a tune, unless you swap the MAF. The "required" tune just bumps the numbers of metal CAIs, which are no better than a drop in when the metal heats up.V6racer04 said:Does the K&N FIPK intake require a performance tune like some of the other CAIs?
dude, you are sooo off.hawks05 said:no way you will get 10 rwhp on a CAI. just buy yourself an Ebay CAI you will get the same gain of any and spend a lot less.
HP motorsports here in Omaha, the Ford Racing Shop in Kansas City AND MMFF showed huge gains with DeMolet and K&N. the metals hung in there until the 2-3rd pass.hawks05 said:nope live in texas in fact used to live in plano now live down closer to houston. never had a problem with the CAI i got from ebay but i wanted to go for a better look and went and got a MAC brand new for $65 shipped and put a big ol K&N on it i only use K&N air filters
well, that's because it doesn't make any difference -the intake can't flow any more.hawks05 said:well when the temps oout side reach 117 i dont think it really matters much plus good luck find a tuneable induction system for my year one thats full from the TB down
